Collisions Involving Cyclists

Bicyclists enjoy some advantages over motorists. They get more exercise than drivers, enjoy more maneuverability, and get to experience the fresh air of the outdoors more than someone stuck in a vehicle. In a roadway collision, however, cyclists are at a distinct disadvantage. With few layers of protection, bicyclists can be thrown from their bikes or crushed under larger vehicles. Serious injuries are unfortunately common with these types of traffic collisions.

Bike Accidents Lead to Devastating injury

When motorists do not take proper car, bike accidents are common. Common injuries that result from these types of collisions include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputation
  • Head injuries
  • Fractures
  • Disk herniation
  • Sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Crushing injuries
  • Paralysis

These types of injuries are often devastating and can change a person's life forever. If you have sustained any injury in cycling collision you will want to take steps to ensure that you protect yourself and your family.

Cycling Accidents Can be Worse than Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians often face serious and even life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car. What many cyclists don’t realize, however, is that the injuries sustained in bicycles crash can be even worse. Bicycles typically travel much faster than pedestrians and for this reason can generate more force upon impact during a collision, causing potentially more serious injuries for the cyclist.

In addition, bicycles in some areas of Hollywood and other cities have to share the road with cars, putting them in more danger of intersection accidents, broad swipe accidents, and other types of collisions. In some cases, cyclists will be hit by cars traveling at high speeds along the same roadway, and speed can be a factor in devastating and fatal crashes.

Protecting Yourself and Your Rights after a Cycling Collison

The reality is that your injuries are likely to be severe and expensive. In Hollywood and other South Florida cities, medical care is excellent, but can be expensive. A serious head injury or permanent spinal cord injury can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year to treat, in some cases. Even if you have insurance, the costs you need to pay out of pocket can be devastating. If you qualify for compensation or a legal claim, it can be an important factor that can help you avoid financial distress or even bankruptcy.
