Common bicycle accident injuries

Posted on November 7, 2014 12:21 pm under Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle riding is known to be a healthy, eco-friendly, and cost-efficient form of transportation and recreation. However, many motorists who share the road with bicyclists are not aware that their negligence and recklessness may cause accidents that could result in hefty medical bills, devastating physical injuries, and tragically even death.

The American Family Physician outlined the physical damages most commonly associated with bicycle-related accidents, which may include:

  • Head – Brain contusion, concussion, and hemorrhage
  • Face – Facial and dental fractures
  • Eye – Foreign bodies in the cornea
  • Muscles and bones – Dislocations and fractures
  • Abdomen – Contusion in the small intestine, large intestine or rectum, hernia, ruptured spleen, hepatic laceration
  • Skin – Abrasion, laceration
  • Chest – Broken ribs, lung injury
