As a bicyclist, if you are involved in a crash with a car or other motor vehicle you are likely to come out on the short end. The size and weight difference between your bike, cars and other vehicles is one factor. Also, bicycles are not as visible as cars, SUVs and other vehicles and are not protected by air bags, seatbelts, or the vehicle’s steel body. The result can be injuries ranging from cuts, scratches, bruises to broken bones, internal injuries, head trauma injury and more.
Due to the potentially serious nature of the injuries, Kansas bike accident victims can require hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation. Costly medical bills can pile up with victims often faced with lost income because of not being able to return to work.
Bicycle Accident Causes
Often in motor vehicle collisions involving bicycles the car driver may claim that they did not see the cyclist. Many bicycle accidents in Kansas and Missouri occur when drivers are turning at an intersection and don’t see the bike rider in their blind spot.
Whether the accident is a result of a careless or negligent motorist or a drunk driver it is important to know that the accident victim may be entitled to medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, property damage, and your pain and suffering.
