Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists are at a serious disadvantage during motor vehicle accidents. The average car is much larger and heavier than a bicycle, and collisions between a cyclist and a driver often result in severe injuries. According to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, cyclists and pedestrians account for approximately 22 percent of serious injuries and 18 percent of traffic fatalities over a five-year period.

Some common injuries that bicycle accident victims suffer from include the following.

  • Traumatic brain injuries, even with a helmet
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Severe abrasions and road rash
  • Spinal cord damage, including paralysis
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Crushing injuries and internal organ damage

Potential Damages for Injured Bothell Cyclists

Any bicycle accident injury can result in serious complications and require immediate medical attention. You may need surgeries, multiple hospitalizations, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and many other types of treatment to recover from your injuries and restore function. You may also sustain lifelong impairments that impact your quality of life and ability to return to work.

Washington is a fault accident state, meaning that negligent drivers are liable for the damages of other drivers, pedestrians, passengers, and cyclists injured in accidents they cause. If a driver is responsible for your accident, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim against him or her.

In your lawsuit or insurance claim, you have the right to recover compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you sustain as a result of the accident. Economic damages involve your financial losses, while non-economic damages refer to the pain and suffering you endured.

Common damages in bicycle accident claims include the following:

  • All past and future medical expenses
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation programs
  • Modifications to your home or vehicle
  • Property repair and replacement
  • Prescription medications
  • Lost wages and a loss of future earnings
  • Chronic pain and disability
  • Fear, anxiety, and depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
