Do you enjoy riding your bicycle? It doesn’t matter if you do so for pleasure or as your primary mode of transportation, you realize one thing to be true: You never want to face any type of trouble on the road.
Here are some of the many injuries often associated with a bicycle accident:
— Broken bones. Generally speaking, any bone can be broken or fractured in a bicycle accident. This includes but is not limited to those of the arms and legs, knees, elbows, and ankles.
— Traumatic brain injury. Although a helmet can help reduce the likelihood of a brain injury, it does not eliminate the risk altogether.
— Spinal cord injury. This is one of the most serious bicycle accident injuries, as a spinal cord injury could result in paralysis.
