Dangers of Bike Accidents
Bicycles should always have properly working parts on them to ensure minimal risk of injury. Many bikes are ridden in the street and among traffic, so if a rider is thrown from the bike, they could be seriously hurt from the impact, as well as from being struck by another vehicle.
If the front fender of a Cannondale bike malfunctions or falls off without warning, the bike can lunge forward and throw the rider over the handlebars. This can cause severe injuries, including (but not limited to):
- Broken bones
- Neck and spinal cord damage
- Brain damage and traumatic brain injuries
- Dislocations and sprains
- Collarbone injuries
- Facial scarring
- Cuts and abrasions
- Internal organ damage
- Severed limbs
