Common Bike Accident Injuries

As a cyclist, it is important to recognize the significant disadvantage you face in most accidents. Without the protection of a vehicle, a collision can result in severe injuries or even death.

Common bike accident injuries can include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Facial injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Psychological trauma
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Neurological damage
  • And much more

 It is crucial to seek immediate medical attention following an accident, even if you feel that your injuries are minor. Some injuries may not show symptoms for days or weeks, and delaying treatment can lead to a longer recovery time. As such, it is imperative to prioritize your health and seek medical help as soon as possible.

What Damages Can I Recover from a Bike Accident?

Bicycle accidents can be devastating, and they frequently result in serious injuries. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, identifying the cause of the accident is critical. If someone acted negligently or violated traffic rules, resulting in your injuries, you may be eligible to file a claim.

Compensation you may seek include:

  • Medical bills including doctors, hospitals, etc.
  • Future medical expenses if your injuries need ongoing care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages due to time off to heal from injuries
  • Property losses

However, determining fault and seeking financial compensation for damages can be difficult to do yourself. This is where our bicycle accident lawyers Chesnutt & Clemmons can step in to assist you while letting you focus on healing from your injuries.
