Bicycle Accident Injuries & Damages
In our decades of practice, we have seen numerous bicycle accident cases and understand well what can happen to a struck cyclist. Even with the best of protective gear, injuries may be severe and widespread due to the sheer size and weight difference between a bicyclist and an automobile.
Injuries often reported in bicycle accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage or paralysis
- Internal bruising or bleeding
- Lacerations and disfigurement
- Broken bones
- Serious burns
Just a single trip to the hospital can cost thousands of dollars, especially if an ambulance’s service was required. The more severe the injury, the more expensive the treatments will be. As time goes on, other complications can arise from the injuries caused by a bicycle accident, and even more medical attention will be necessary.
To help pay for your damages, you should fight for compensation that covers the following:
Emergency medical attention
Costs of hospitalization
Lost or reduced earning potential
Property damage (bike repair or replacement)
Pain and suffering
It is unfortunately common for a bicycle rider to lose his or her life after being struck by a fast-moving vehicle. In such situations, our team of personal injury attorneys in Savannah are ready to create a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members.
