Bicycle Accident Injuries Caused from Road Bumps in Georgia

Bicycle Accident Injuries Caused from Road Bumps in Georgia

Atlanta Injury Blog > 2011 > December > Bicycle Accident Injuries Caused from Road Bumps in Georgia

In a recent article, we talked about the danger that large road markers or "road turtles" cause cyclists in Decatur. As we mentioned, numerous road markers have been added to the city of Decatur, and now large road markers are all throughout Georgia.

Road markers can create a hazard. When a bicyclist’s wheels strike a marker they can cause a Georgia bicycle accident. A cyclist can fall off the bike due to coming in contact with the plastic bump in the road. When this happens, injuries from the fall could include:

  • Road burn
  • Bruising
  • Broken collarbone (clavicle fracture)
  • Broken limbs
  • Head trauma
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Skull fracture
  • Back and neck injuries
  • And more

Sometimes, a cyclist could even be thrown out into the middle of traffic and be struck by a moving vehicle, which can cause even more serious injuries or death.

Cyclists and other opponents to the addition of large road markers are encouraging city officials to make the city’s streets safer by eliminating these potential hazards for cyclists’ safety.

If you have been injured in a Decatur or Atlanta bicycle crash due to no fault of your own, you may have rights to a financial recovery for your damages, medical expenses, and more.
