Bicycle Accident Injuries in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Even the most careful rider has very little safety gear in the event of a collision, as a bike helmet only provides limited protection to the head, while the rest of the body is exposed to the full force of the crash. The rider is liable to injury from two sources-the impact with the other vehicle and with the road surface. Common injuries include broken limbs or a fractured collarbone, road rash and concussions, and can be as serious as traumatic brain injuries, paralyzing spinal cord injuries and even fatal injuries.
