Common Injuries In Bike Accident Cases
At VanMeveren Law Group, we have successfully recovered damages in biking accident cases involving:
- Closed head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severed limbs
- Broken bones
- Collapsed lungs
- Tibial plateau fractures
Closed head trauma is one of the most frequent and most devastating injuries in any type of vehicle crash. It is also one of the most difficult to treat. Long-term complications from even a minor concussion can be extensive. Many times the injured cyclist is unaware of the full extent of his or her symptoms. Without proper evaluation, you simply can’t be sure what consequences it might eventually have on your professional or private life. Effects can range from impaired motor skills to unexplained emotional swings and outbursts.
You will need a skilled attorney to pursue every avenue of recovery. For example, if the driver is uninsured or underinsured, your own motor vehicle insurance can step in and pay the costs that weren’t covered by the perpetrator’s company, even though you were on a bicycle at the time of the accident.
