Common Injuries Resulting From Bicycle Accidents
Soft tissue injuries like lacerations, bruises, and scrapes resulting from sudden and solid impacts are very common in bike crashes. Bicyclists may also suffer broken teeth, facial fractures, and multiple bone fractures. Those who are thrown off their bikes by the impact of a crash may also suffer head and brain injuries that are potentially fatal or cause lifelong disabilities and require long-term medical care.
Common Causes of Bicycle Crashes
Many bike crashes result from a driver’s recklessness or failure to give bicyclists the right-of-way. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t know how, or care, to share the road with bicyclists safely. The most common types of crashes involving bicycles and drivers include:
- Unsafe right turns – Drivers turning right on a red light must always look to their right and their rear for oncoming motorists to avoid crashing into a bicyclist who’s coming from behind.
- Unsafe left turns – Drivers who are turning left must be careful when they’re in front of a bicyclist and not violate their right-of-way. Otherwise, they might crash into the bicyclist.
- Failure to look out for bicyclists – Drivers who fail to notice bicyclists and suddenly pull out right into the bicyclist’s path may leave the bicyclist seriously injured in a crash. This also applies in accidents where drivers fail to notice bicyclists when pulling out of parking spaces and driveways.
