Common Injuries In Urban Bike Accidents
Bicycles are a wonderful, pollution-free way to get around the city. However, because of the high-density population, bicyclists are exceptionally vulnerable to inattentive drivers. Children are of course most vulnerable, but even the most adept and aware cyclist has little or no defense when it comes to a reckless or distracted driver. Because of their vulnerability, many injuries are possible. The most common being:
- Head and brain injuries, including deep wounds, lacerations, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Facial lacerations, disfigurement, lost teeth, and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries that can include paralysis
- Breaks and fractures – hands, wrists, ankles, legs, jaws, and knees

Seven Causes Of Bicycle Accidents In New Jersey And New York
Most accidents between a vehicle and a bicycle are caused by the driver of the vehicle. Typically, drivers are either doing something they should not or failing to do something they should. This is negligence, and it is the basis of all personal injury lawsuits. There are many actions or inactions that cause serious injuries. The seven most common are:
- Driving too fast, either over the speed limit or too fast for the road or weather conditions
- Distracted driving, either texting, eating, looking for something, or concentrating on phone maps or music
- Driving in the designated bike lane
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Following a bicycle too closely
- Drunk, drugged, or drowsy driving
- Failing to follow traffic laws
When a vehicle strikes a cyclist, at any speed, the cyclist can suffer life-threatening injuries. After a serious accident, the cyclist can lose mobility and function either temporarily or permanently. Injuries can prevent a person from being able to work and provide for themselves or for their families. Our bicycle accident lawyer is here to help all victims of bicycle accidents fight for the full and fair compensation to which they are entitled.
