Injuries sustained during bike accidents tend to be very serious, as bicyclists are more exposed to general bodily harm and head injury, even if wearing a helmet or other safety gear. Bicycles are more likely to be involved in a crash not only because they are less stable, but also because they are less visible than cars and other vehicles. Most often, bicyclists are injured or hit by an automobile because they were not seen by the drivers in front, beside, or behind them.
In addition, poor roads and hazards such as blind corners, obstructions, and debris can make bicycling even more perilous. Bicycle accidents are typically caused by collisions with cars or other motor vehicles, whose owners should be held liable if proven to be caused by negligent driving. The damages awarded in a bicycle injury claim can also include compensation for any type of injury caused by a broken sidewalk, pothole, or even a badly constructed road.
