Been in a bicycle accident? Call Spillers Law Firm today

As the highways and streets become ever more congested, more and more Georgia residents have begun using bicycles as a means of transportation. Unfortunately, this has also led to an increase in collisions between motorists and bicyclists. In most cases, these collisions end up having much more severe consequences for the cyclist than for the motorist who has built-in protections, such as seat belts and air bags. Bicyclists, who are much more exposed, face serious injuries, some of which can leave victims permanently disabled. Treating accident-related injuries can be prohibitively expensive, which makes it especially important that cyclists who are injured in collisions, consult with a Cumming personal injury lawyer who can ensure that their interests are protected.

Most Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

While bicycle accidents can happen almost anywhere and at any time, some causes are more common than others, such as:

  • A motorist’s failure to stop as directed by a traffic signal or stop sign;
  • A driver’s failure to check his or her blind spot before changing lanes or turning;
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • A driver’s failure to yield to a cyclist at a crosswalk;
  • Striking a bicyclist from behind after veering into the bike lane unexpectedly;
  • A poorly designed or maintained road; and
  • A malfunctioning traffic signal.

These situations cause thousands of accidents every year, many of which could have been avoided if one or both parties had behaved reasonably.

Potential Injuries

When a motorist and a bicyclist collide, it is much more likely that the cyclist will sustain the more serious injuries. Their exposure to the full force of a collision’s impact can result in dangerous, and often deadly injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which can cause memory loss, mood swings, paralysis, comas, and death;
  • Spinal cord injuries, which can result in permanent paralysis;
  • Compound bone fractures and joint dislocations;
  • Severe lacerations;
  • Amputations;
  • Muscle and soft tissue injuries; and
  • Chest and abdominal injuries, such as organ damage.

Treating these kinds of injuries can require victims to undergo multiple surgeries and grueling physical therapy, while also having to foot the bill for expensive prescription medications. These costs can quickly add up to drive a family into debt, especially when the injured cyclist is forced to miss work while he or she is healing. Fortunately, injured cyclists who can demonstrate that another party’s negligent or reckless conduct caused their accident can collect damages to compensate them for the following losses:

  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future income;
  • Property damage; and
  • Pain and suffering.

Although recovering damages may not be able to return a cyclist to his or her pre-accident condition, it can go a long way towards helping injured parties and their families begin the long road to recovery.
