Did you know if you cycle in a densely populated area, you’re at a higher risk of being in a bicycle accident and sustaining a head injury? If you’ve been in a bicycle accident and have had a head injury, here is everything you need to know.
Head Injuries Are Common In Bicycle Accidents
After crashing their bike, the cyclist might be hit by a car or another cyclist. From the momentum of the collision, the cyclist can be propelled in any direction and hit their head on concrete or a solid object. While many people wear a helmet while they cycle, the blunt force of the impact can still be enough to cause a head injury.
Since a bicycle does not have a metal frame or airbags to protect its rider, the cyclist’s body absorbs all the kinetic energy from the crash. This is why head injuries are common after bicycle accidents.
Head Injury Treatment & Compensation
Head injuries can cost thousands in medical bills and lost wages. Treatment may require surgery and stitches depending on the severity of the collision. The brain may be completely rattled from the accident and need time to recover, which can be costly.
If you or a loved one has been in a bicycle accident and have sustained a head injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys work hard to ensure you receive the justice and compensation that you deserve.
