Victims Of Iowa Bicycle Accidents Deserve Maximum Compensation
Bicyclists and drivers are obligated to follow the same rules of the road. Most of the time, both share the road without issues. However, some inattentive or negligent drivers are not fully aware of their surroundings, collide with bikers and cause injury.
Bicyclists Are Likely To Walk Away With Very Serious Injuries
Injuries from a bicycle accident will more likely than not be substantial. A lack of protective shield, other than a bike helmet, is no match for a larger passenger vehicle – or truck.
Therefore, when a car sideswipes or fails to yield to a bicyclist and they collide, the biker is likely to suffer from:
- Head injuries
- Back or neck injuries
- Leg injuries
- Broken bones
- Hand or wrist injuries
The more serious the injury, the higher the medical bills. Surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy – all are among the long list of expenses many will need during the recovery period. Further, such bike injuries will result in time off work. The inability to pay bills or provide for your family adds to the stress of the injury.
Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer with knowledge of handling bicycle accident cases can help recover the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
