Bicycle Accidents

PDF Print

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2009, 630 cyclists were killed and an additional 51,000 were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. 

All bicyclists should wear properly fitted bicycle helmets every time they ride. A helmet is the single most effective way to prevent head injury resulting from a bicycle crash.  According to the NHTSA, when properly worn, a helmet can lessen the risk of brain injury by as much as 88 percent and the risk of other head injuries by as much as 85 percent. 

Many bicycle accidents occur at intersections where a motorist fails to see a cyclist.  Other bicycle accidents occur because of driver inattention and speed. 

A bicycle accident can result in severe injuries such as broken or fractured bones and head trauma.
