Common Bike Accident Injuries and Your Rights

While Los Angeles County is home to a vast number of bicyclists, many motorists still don’t give other road users the respect they deserve. As a result, bicycle accidents are far more common than they should be. And when they do occur, they often cause severe injuries. Below, we will detail some of the most common bike accident injuries and what you can do to safeguard your rights.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Despite wearing a helmet, you may suffer severe traumatic brain injuries resulting from the crash impact. Even minor crashes can lead to your brain moving around in your skull, which is enough damage to cause a concussion. A large vehicle colliding with a bicyclist can cause significant and long-term damage.

Spine Injuries

Many bicycle accidents result in the bicyclist being ejected and landing on the concrete or the vehicle that hit them. As a result, it could cause significant damage to the neck and spine. Spine injuries often lead to paralysis—the complete loss of bodily function below the injury location along the spine.

Severely Broken Bones

While broken bones can occur in nearly any situation, some severely broken bones can puncture your skin and other parts of your body. Severe breaks can cause further damage, requiring ongoing medical care, surgery, and more.

Burn Injuries

Many bicycle accidents cause the driver to slam to the ground, suffering road rash. While this often appears as a laceration, road rash is a friction burn that takes off multiple layers of your skin and leaves long-term scarring. It’s also very painful to endure.
