Bicycle Collisions

Throughout most of the year, the weather in Phoenix is sufficiently pleasant to allow residents to engage in outdoor activities that are part of a healthy lifestyle. For many people, bicycle riding becomes a treasured recreational escape or an environmentally friendly way to commute. Because bicycles are considered vehicles and typically must share the road with motorists, bicyclists are perpetually exposed to the risk of collisions with automobiles. Even if a cyclist is wearing a helmet and all other appropriate safety equipment, such a crash is a mismatch and it is probable that he or she will sustain serious injuries.

If you have been injured by a negligent driver while you were riding your bicycle and adhering to the law, then you may wish to consider filing a lawsuit to help with the medical expenses and other damages incurred as a result of the collision.

Common Bicycle Collision Injuries

Part of the reason for the severity of injuries sustained by bicyclists in automobile collisions is the comparative defenselessness of a cyclist. Cars are apt to be much larger, heavier, and traveling faster – all of which bodes poorly for a rider who does not even have the benefit of a restraining device. Common injuries in such an accident may include:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Severe contusions
  • Fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe abrasions (or “road rash”)
