Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Bicycles are a common mode of transportation, and many people choose to ride their bikes to work and to run errands. Many others choose to walk. Pedestrians are very common in states like California where the weather is nice year-round. Some of the most common causes of bicycle or pedestrian accidents include distracted drivers of vehicles who fail to yield or even see these individuals. Unfortunately, drivers may not be paying attention to what is right outside of their vehicle.
Severity of Bike or Pedestrian Accidents
Bicyclists and pedestrians who are injured due to an accident with the car can suffer serious, life-threatening injuries that can result in high medical bills. The severity of these types of accidents is simply because there is a lack of protection for these individuals.
In addition to death, bike- and pedestrian-related accidents can also result in severe injuries such as a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or even the loss of limbs. Traumatic brain injuries can last a couple of months, to years, to an entire lifetime. Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis. Loss of limbs can be a life-changing event that would require an injured victim to go through rehabilitation to use prosthetic devices if they are available. All these injuries, as well as fractures, broken bones, scrapes, scars and more, can result in extensive hospital stays, which can place an extreme financial burden on families.
