What Kinds of Injuries Do Bicycle Accidents Cause?

Bicycle accident injuries can be very serious, up to and including death. Unlike a car or truck, bicyclists have no steel cage of protection around them. As a result, bicyclists are almost always injured in one form or another when either impacting other vehicles or when suffering injuries when attempting to avoid contact with others. Bicyclists often times suffer minor to significant injuries from road rash to soft-tissue damage to head injuries, to fractured bones, internal injuries, spinal damage and other catastrophic injuries. Because these injuries can be very expensive to treat and take victims out of work for many weeks, bicyclists and their families often suffer substantial financial impact as well. That's why it is important to carry adequate insurance coverage.
