Phoenix Bicycle Accident Head Injury Lawyers
Compensation for Victims of Bike Crash Head Trauma
Bicycling can be a relatively safe physical activity and mode of transportation if cyclists exercise caution at all times and motorists keep an eye out for those sharing the road. It's a fact of life, however, that bicycling accidents do occur. While some bike collisions may result in minor abrasions, head injuries are also a possible outcome.
Common Biker Head Injuries
Riders can avoid many bicycle accident head injuries by always wearing a properly fitting helmet. There is no law in Arizona mandating the use of bicycle helmets. Even if riders do take this precaution, bicycle accident head injuries can still happen. Common head injuries include the following:
- Skull fractures
- Traumatic brain injury
- Intracranial bleeding
Side Effects of a Head Injury in a Phoenix Bike Accident
Bicycle accident head injuries can have long-lasting and devastating effects. These types of injuries force individuals who have sustained them to deal with one or more of the following:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Chronic pain
- Loss of mental function
- Difficulty walking

Because of the often serious consequences of bicycle accident head injuries, the road to recovery can be a long one. An injured individual may require medical care, surgery, therapy and substantial time away from work. In some cases, returning to work may not be possible.
