Injuries suffered in bike crashes can devastate victims

There are a number of injuries anyone who is involved in a bike crash could suffer, but in a bike crash with a motor vehicle, they're more likely to be serious. Road rash and impact injuries are just two of the more significant issues people face.

Road rash occurs when the skin scrapes off while grazing against the road. In mild forms, the wound needs to be cleaned gently and covered while it heals. In serious injuries, the wounds are deep and may require surgery for cleansing them thoroughly. The injuries may bleed a lot and expose bone and other tissues. In those cases, patients often end up in the hospital for extended periods of time.

Another possibility of injury comes from the impact involved in the crash. It's common to see broken bones as well as injured organs. Internal bleeding is a possibility along with traumatic brain injuries. Even with a helmet and riding gear, there is a risk of head trauma and organ injuries, broken bones and other injuries. If you are thrown from a bicycle, try to remember not to reach out to catch yourself, so you protect your body and reduce the risk of impact to your arms and limbs when you strike the ground.

If you've suffered in a cycling accident, you have a right to seek compensation to help you as you move forward. Your injuries may take months or years to fully heal, and you deserve support while you do so. Our site has more information on the steps you can take next.
