About 2 people are killed every day while riding their bikes and being hit by a car or truck on the road. While that may not sound like a lot – especially when compared to the number of motor vehicle fatalities every day – it is relative. More and more people are using their bikes to get around in an effort to save money and to conserve precious natural resources. As those numbers rise, so will the number of bicycle accident fatalities.

Though efforts have been made to improve bicycle safety by creating bike lanes and promoting awareness of bicyclists on the road, these accidents still happen and they can be devastating. If you or someone you love is injured in a bike accident, you may be eligible for compensation under the law. A bicycle accident personal injury lawyer from Marco Injury Law in Mesa, Arizona may be able to help you.

Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents

Even if bicycle accidents are not fatal, they can cause serious and sometimes lifelong injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 50,000 people were injured in bike accidents in 2014. Yet these numbers can be much higher since these are only the ones that are reported to police. Many more people are injured without reporting the accident.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, injuries can be relatively minor, though they are often severe.

Some common injuries involved in bicycle accidents include:

  • Broken nose
  • Broken jaw
  • Chipped or knocked-out teeth
  • Broken or fractured leg, arm, shoulder, hip, or other bone
  • Spinal cord injury (potentially leading to paralysis)
  • Lacerations
  • Bruised organs
  • Traumatic brain injury

The type of injury you could sustain depends on a number of factors, including:

  • How fast you or the vehicle were traveling
  • Whether you were wearing a helmet or knee or elbow guards
  • How you landed
  • Whether you hit anything else, like a rock or branch

For example, a car traveling at a low speed could bump your back wheel lightly, sending you flying over the handlebars. This could have been a relatively minor incident, but if you were not wearing a helmet and then hit a rock, you could have a traumatic brain injury.

Our attorneys will review the details of your case to find all the mitigating circumstances and determine how to create the best case for you. It is our goal to get the maximum compensation the law provides to help you fully recover from your injuries and maintain your quality of life.

The compensation you can receive for your bicycle accident depends upon the circumstances of the accident and the type of injuries you sustained. You may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs related to the care you have already received for your injuries
  • Projected medical costs you will have for future surgeries, medications, or other care
  • Rehabilitation, reconstructive surgery, pain management, or other future care
  • Home health aides or in-patient care for long-term, serious injuries
  • Mobility aides
  • Lost wages and projected future lost wages
  • Legal costs
  • Pain and suffering

Arizona recognizes comparative negligence. This means that if you are found to have contributed to the accident in some way – such as not obeying traffic laws, veering outside of the bike lane, or not wearing a helmet – your compensation can be reduced in proportion to the fault you have been attributed. That’s why it is so important to work with an experienced bicycle accident lawyer who is dedicated to defending your rights. The circumstances of your case can be interpreted differently by legal experts, so your attorney will work hard to produce the evidence and persuasive argumentation to minimize your liability and maximize your settlement.
