Popularity of Bicycling
Cycling injuries can be very serious, mainly because bicyclists are exposed to harsh elements such as asphalt, concrete and metal. Any collision or fall suffered while riding a bike has the potential to be severe or even fatal. From scrapes and cuts, to broken bones, to head trauma, the consequences of suffering an injury while cycling can be lasting and permanent.
This is particularly true when a cyclist suffers a severe head injury during an accident. A traumatic brain injury can occur when the brain experiences a sudden physical impact, such as the type of impact a cyclist can sustain in a collision or fall. Cyclists who have suffered a closed head injury during an accident or fall can experience headaches, difficulty with focusing on or completing tasks, fatigue, changes in personality or energy level, and more.

Holding Negligent Parties Responsible for Bicycle Accidents
Sometimes, in spite of a cyclist’s best efforts to legally and safely ride their bicycle on public roadways, he/she can suffer injuries due to the negligence of another motorist. The most common causes of bicycle traffic accidents include drivers distracted by cell phones, alcohol/drug impairment, visibility, and failing to follow basic traffic laws such as signaling before making a turn or changing lanes.
Cyclists can also be injured on public roadways which are not properly maintained by local or state authorities who are responsible for keeping streets and highways in a safe condition. Injuries can also be caused when a bicycle manufacturer, retailer or repair facility either makes or fails to correct a defective bicycle or its component parts.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury while riding your bicycle because of the negligent or faulty acts of another, please contact The Philbrook Law Office for a free consultation regarding your legal rights.
