Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicycling is a popular way to travel around Columbus. Students often bike to class at Ohio State, and many employees bike to work on nice days. It is also a common recreational activity, enjoyed by serious and casual cyclists alike. However, there are many motorists who do not understand Ohio’s bicycle laws or how to share the road with cyclists. This puts cyclists at serious risk of an accident and, with it, life-changing injuries.

Even if bicyclists wear protective gear, such as bicycle helmets, they still face a high risk of serious injury if they are hit by a car. A person on a bike is simply no match for a large, heavy, fast-moving vehicle. Sadly, this leads to cyclists suffering catastrophic and, in some cases, fatal injuries when they are struck by cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles.

Common bicyclist injuries include:

These and other serious injuries require immediate emergency attention and typically result in extensive, long-term medical care. The cost of treatment can easily soar, leaving victims and their families struggling to keep up with mounting medical bills. When victims’ injuries prevent them from returning to work, either temporarily or permanently, it adds an additional financial burden to an already challenging situation.
