Bicyclists are especially susceptible to accidents and injury because of their proximity to other vehicles on the road and their exposure to dangerous conditions. Although bicycle accidents can occur because of dangerous road conditions or inclement weather, one of the most common causes is collision with other vehicles.
Furthermore, drivers have been found to be responsible for these accidents up to 75 percent of the time. Some of the most common causes include:
- Driver is distracted and engaging in activities like texting
- Driver gets too close to bicyclist
- Driver opens door and hits bicyclist
- Driver makes left hand turn and hits an approaching bicycle
According to the Center for Disease Control, there were over 1,000 bicyclist deaths and nearly 467,000 injuries resulting from bike accidents in 2015 alone.Determining the Extent of Your Injuries
Although helmets and other protective gear can drastically reduce the chance of life-threatening injuries, they cannot protect against everything. Even a minor bicycle accident can still cause extensive, serious injuries. Some of the more common injuries include:
More serious accidents can lead to the wrongful death of a loved one. Catastrophic injuries can have lifelong effects on your health and require extensive, painful surgeries. Spinal cord or brain injuries may leave you permanently disabled and unable to work or enjoy the same activities you did before your accident.
In addition to ensuring you receive sufficient compensation for medical bills, Mr. Kenison can help you determine the full extent of your injuries and how they impact your daily life so that you get the compensation you deserve.
