Unexpected Accident

Bicycling is a wonderful way to get around. Whether you use your bike for leisure and exercise or as your main mode of transportation, we know the last thing you plan on is getting into an accident. Unfortunately, we know that many drivers are careless when it comes to driving around bikes.

According to the US Department of Transportation, the last decade has seen steady increase in the number of cyclists injured and killed in collisions with vehicles. Even if you wear a helmet, there is little protection for a cyclist when it comes to being hit by a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds. When a person is struck by a vehicle, they usually absorb two impacts – one with the vehicle and the other with the ground, both of which can cause serious harm to your body.

The most common injuries in a vehicle versus bicycle crash are dislocated and broken bones, but more serious internal injuries and brain trauma are also real possibilities. All of these injuries can lead to long hospital stays, possible rehabilitation, and missed work.

Driver Negligence

While some crashes are indeed nobody’s fault, there are many times when a driver’s carelessness leads to major injuries. If a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they are much less likely to pay attention to a bicyclist around them. If they are looking at their phones, either texting or watching a video, they may not see someone on a bicycle. Many bicycle accidents happen at intersections when the cyclist has the right-of-way but a vehicle driver goes through the intersection anyway, striking the cyclist.

What To Do

You may have many questions in the aftermath of an accident that seriously injures you.

  • Will your insurance cover everything?
