Bicycle Accident Injuries
Cycling as a mode of transportation has gained popularity in recent years, which has increased the cyclist accident rate. A vast majority of cyclists are hit by the front of automobiles with drivers who fail to look or get too close to the cyclist.
Limb injuries are the most common injury resulting from bicycling accidents. Over 40% of all injuries are arm injuries and 25% are leg injuries. Chest and abdomen injuries only occur approximately 5% of the time but are often very serious. On the other hand, head injuries are very common. Hospitals have reported that over 40% of cyclists suffer head injuries. Head injuries range from cuts to skull fractures and brain damage. Catastrophic injuries can still occur even if the bicyclist was wearing a helmet.
Bicycle accidents are caused by a multitude of reasons, but the most common are:
- Failing to look or notice bicyclist
- Motor vehicular drivers driving into the bicyclist’s lane
- Failure of motor vehicular drivers to share the road
- Road debris
- Uneven payment
- Utility lines
