Phoenix Bike Accident Bone Fracture Attorneys

Did You Break Bones in a Car-Bicycle Collision?

A lot of people are hurt while riding their bikes - and if a car is involved, they can be seriously injured. It makes sense that if you are hit by a vehicle, you will have a fracture or need surgery. It isn't a good thought, but it's something that bicycle riders should think about.

As a cyclist, you hope that motorists will always pay attention to you, but they don't. Although there are efforts out in the community to change that, you've got to be ready for the harsh reality that your physical safety is at risk every time you get on a bicycle. Drivers, of course, are not the only problem out on the road. Lack of proper signage, road shoulders, and bike lanes are all contributors to serious accidents involving bicycle riders. However, driver inattention is still the most common precursor to the collisions that injure bicycle riders.

More About Fractures

Bone fractures are incredibly common in bicycle collisions because your body is not protected like it is in a car. When you are on a bicycle, you have only your helmet to protect you (if you chose to wear one). When you are hit by a vehicle, you will most likely be thrown from your bicycle and hit the ground. In addition, you'll sustain injuries caused by the impact with the vehicle. The smallest collisions can still cause bone fractures.

Cyclists are most likely to sustain fractures to the arms, legs, wrists, ankles, back, neck, face, collarbone, and pelvis, but other body parts can be fractured as well. Multiple fractures are possible in the same accident.

Bone fractures can take months to heal, if not years. If your fracture is severe enough, you may need surgery to set the bone and help your body heal properly. For those cyclists who sustain multiple fractures, the road to recovery is even longer. In most cases, it is impossible to work full-time. This means that you will be unable to earn a living while you are healing from your injuries.

After you sustain bone fractures in a collision with a motorist, immediately visit your medical provider, and consider telling your story to a skilled personal injury attorney in Phoenix. The right attorney can help you build a case, find the right doctors and therapists, and get the compensation you deserve for your recovery, however long it may take.
