Bicycle accidents can be some of the most catastrophic injuries that one can endure. When the human body makes direct contact with a speeding automobile the result is often death or catastrophic injury to the bicyclist involved. In addition to serious medical problems, you may be left on the hook for costs and future lost wages. You may be able to seek damages from the one who injured you to cover these costs.

The Danger of Bicycle Accidents
A bicycle accident can be catastrophic, especially when it involves organ, brain or spine damage. These injuries often cause lifelong disabilities, including partial or total paralysis. For those fortunate enough to escape these types of injuries, it still may result in broken bones, road rash, and injuries to the knee, neck, back or shoulder, as well as other injuries mentioned on this website.
Those who have been involved in an accident have their lives changed forever. Often, the same can be said for their families. The accident may result in permanent injuries that mean not only lifelong care and medical charges, but also the additional cost of a lifetime of lost wages. Even in fatal cases, hospital stays can be an incredible expense. After those have been covered, the family may face millions in lost wages as a result of death.
For those not suffering a catastrophic injury from a bicycle accident but still dealing with a resulting injury, the amount of past and future medical bills could easily surpass $100,000. This can create great hardship for the person involved in the accident and their family.
