Everything you do in life has risks, and bicycling is no exception. Each year in the United States, more than 500,000 people end up in emergency rooms due to bicycle-related injuries. At Henson Fuerst, bicycle accident law firm, we’ve handled hundreds of cases involving cyclists who were seriously injured on the road.
The most common bicycle-related injury we see is head injury, including concussion. A concussion is a form of brain injury, and its effects can range from mild to life-altering. Of all of the trauma related injuries (broken bones, road rash and dislocations), head trauma is the only one that we can prevent – not totally, but significantly. Simply wear a helmet when riding.
