Broken Bones from Bicycle Accidents

Most devoted cyclists ride their bikes every day. However, the more time that a cyclist rides his bike, the higher the risk that he will get injured over the course of a year. In fact, many studies indicate that avid bicycle riders sustain approximately one broken bone per year. If a cyclist is thrown off his bike, he can sustain fractures and broken bones easily, as he has little protection other than a helmet. When a cyclist gets hit by a motor vehicle in a parking lot or smashed into by a negligent driver on the road, broken bones and other serious injuries can occur.

However, not every bike crash is caused by a careless and speeding driver. There are many road hazards and dangerous conditions that are the cause of accidents. In fact, many crashes occur due to a bike part malfunctioning or a bicycle rider hitting a pothole, causing the individual to flip off the bike and suffer broken bones. Even minor accidents can cause a cyclist to fracture or break bones.

Bones that usually break include:

  • Collarbone
  • Arm
  • Leg
  • Finger
  • Pelvis
  • Back

Virtually any area of the body that is unprotected in a bicycle accident can leave the individual vulnerable for a bone fracture or broken bone. Although bicycle accident broken bones are not as serious as other possible injuries, such as a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, etc., they are in no way just a minor injury. A broken bone can cause a cyclist pain and other complications.

Depending on the severity of the break, it can take a cyclist a long time to heal. Injured cyclists may not be able to return to work or take care of themselves, and they may need to depend on someone else for help. When a Georgia bicycle accident occurs and you suffer broken bones or fractures, you will incur medical bills in addition to your pain. Do not suffer your injuries alone.

If someone else was responsible for your bike accident, then you need to seek justice. You may be entitled to medical expenses, physical therapy, time off of work, and more.
