Types of Injuries Sustained After Bicycle Accidents

After suffering serious injuries or losing a loved one in a bicycle accident, you should consult with bicycle accident attorneys in San Diego. Even when a bicyclist wears a helmet, the injuries that can arise from a collision with a motor vehicle are still substantial.

Common Injuries Suffered in Bicycle Accidents

According to 2009 statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 99 fatalities involving cyclists in California. Because bicyclists are out in the open and don't have the protection of airbags, they're at risk for the following injuries when involved in an accident:

  • head trauma;
  • broken bones;
  • spinal cord injuries and paralysis;
  • soft tissue injuries such as a torn ligament or cartilage;
  • damaged limbs requiring amputation;
  • road rash, which can lead to serious infections; and
  • death.

To recover damages after injuries from a bicycle accident, you should speak with bicycle accident attorneys in San Diego who are well-versed in California auto accident law. Your attorneys will gather evidence, review police reports and interview witnesses.

Your attorneys may apply California auto law to your case to determine negligence and ensure that you don't take on any more fault than you should for your bicycle accident.
