Bicycle Accidents & Brain Injuries

Let an Albuquerque Brain Injury Lawyer Fight for You

Have you or a loved one suffered a brain injury in a bicycle accident? While many people enjoy bike riding as a form of recreation and cost-effective transportation, careless drivers can cause this activity to quickly turn sour and cause riders to suffer debilitating brain injuries in the event of a collision. Brain injuries can cause a person to suffer varying levels of disability, including loss of cognitive function, memory loss, chronic headaches, coma, and sometimes death. If you or a loved one have suffered brain damage in a bicycle collision, Albuquerque brain injury lawyer Michael J. Doyle can represent your interests in court and advocate for fair financial recovery on your behalf.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 494,000 emergency department visits occurred due to bicycle-related injuries in 2013 alone, many of which involved cyclists suffering brain injuries. Bicycle accidents can be caused by a myriad of different factors, though almost all of them share one common theme: driver negligence. Drivers who fail to take the proper precautions to look out for cyclists can be held liable for any damages they may cause in the event of an accident, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and rehabilitation expenses.

Bicycle accidents can be caused by any of the following forms of driver negligence:

  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Running red lights
  • Running stop signs
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving too close to cyclists
  • Failing to yield the right of way

Resulting brain injuries can vary greatly in severity depending on whether or not a cyclist is wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. Even the most minor brain injuries such as concussions can result in serious debilitation if left untreated. For this reason, if you have suffered any type of blow to the head in a bicycle accident, it is imperative you see a doctor and contact our firm as soon as possible. Our firm can examine the circumstances surrounding your crash help determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
