Causes of Bike Accidents

Bike accidents happen in many ways. One of the most common (and also most dangerous) causes of bike accidents is being struck by a car. Many motorists don’t know it, but they are required to operate their vehicles in a manner that does not unreasonably expose others to risk. When sharing the road with a bicyclist, there are certain rules that drivers must follow. When a driver is negligent and strikes someone on a bike, disastrous injuries can occur to the bicyclist.

Bike accidents can also be caused by defects in the bike that lead to crashes, such as problems with braking, steering, or tires. In other cases, bike accidents are the result of another bicyclist, a pedestrian, or a dangerous condition in a bike trail, road, or sidewalk, such as a pothole or uneven concrete.

Injuries Caused by Bicycle Accidents

Because the human body is exposed to outside elements and forces, and lacks the protection that comes in a car, such as airbags, seatbelts, and reinforced frames of the vehicle. This means that even a low-speed accident can cause serious injuries.

Some of the common injuries to bicyclists include:

  • Soft tissue injuries: Soft tissue injuries are muscle sprains, and tears. Bicyclists often suffer these injuries in their legs, arms, hands, feet, back, neck, or shoulders.
  • Lacerations or burns: When the human body impacts with the pavement or another hard surface, the victim can suffer lacerations, cuts, and road rash. These injuries can lead to infection or scarring.
  • Head and facial injuries: Even with a helmet, the bicyclist can still suffer serious head and facial injuries, including brain injury, broken bones in the face, concussions, and neck injuries.
