Common McKinney Bicycle Accident Injuries

Injuries from bike accidents could range from scrapes and bruises to orthopedic injuries, broken bones, back, neck, internal, and traumatic brain injuries. The unfortunate reality is that when a person is on a bicycle, they may be less protected than those in other types of vehicles and more likely to sustain significant injuries in a wreck. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, it may be advisable to reach out to a lawyer who is knowledgeable about the common McKinney bicycle accident injuries. A compassionate attorney could help you find the compensation you need to cover the cost of your damages and injuries.

Aggravate Injuries

A bicycle accident could aggravate injuries because the person is hitting the roadway, concrete, or a vehicle itself. Cars and trucks are designed with the very possibility of a wreck in mind. A car or truck’s safety engineering specifically design the passenger and driver compartments to prevent impact between the occupant and the road or other vehicles. Unfortunately, bicyclists have no such protection. Therefore, it may be easier for a person to be hurt much worse than would be expected in the same impact between cars.

Traumatic Brain Injuries From Bike Accidents

A traumatic brain injury could be caused by impact to the head and is generally defined as any period of altered mentation following an impact or injury situation. The mere action of stomping hard enough could rattle the brain around inside the skull enough to cause a traumatic brain injury. The laws of the alteration of mentation are the feeling of being confused or really not knowing what is going on in the immediate aftermath of any type of wreck or any type of impact.

A concussion is a brain injury, and like any other injury, an individual’s recovery may vary depending on who they are, what part of the brain was injured, and what kind of capacity they had before. A traumatic brain injury is one of the most common McKinney bicycle accident injuries and it is also one of the most serious ones.

Broken Bones

As a matter of simple physics, broken bones may be prone to occur in bicycle accident cases. Since mass times speed equals force, the faster an individual hits the ground and the heavier that individual is, the greater the force that is applied to a particular bone on impact will be and the higher the likelihood the bone is going to break. Broken bones are very common during falls and bicycle impacts and could be serious or even life-threatening injuries.

Reach out to a Lawyer for More Information

Some of the most serious consequences of sustaining a bone injury may include surgery with the implementation of hardware. With a compound fracture, there may be a very high risk of infection because it is typically a dirty wound, which requires a lot of cleaning and antibiotics. Sometimes there may be an infection of the bone called osteomyelitis which could take a long time to heal and might even result in amputation.

These common McKinney bicycle accident injuries can lead to serious long-term implications and expensive medical bills. Therefore, if you have been injured in a bike accident, consult with a lawyer today.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
