Bicycles are a healthy, convenient mode of transport. Ohio has become an increasingly bike-friendly state, adding miles of bike trails every year and implementing programs such as the CoGo bike share. But despite this prevalence of bicycles, motorists continue to ignore the rights of bicyclists and cause accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries or even death.
Why Do Bike Accidents Lead To Such Severe Injuries?
When bicyclists share the road with motorists, they face a higher risk of injury than drivers do. Similar to motorcyclists, bicyclists are especially vulnerable on public roads, as they are fully exposed to other vehicles and less capable of evading careless drivers or negotiating dangerous road conditions. When a bicyclist is involved in a collision, the consequences are likely to be significant, with the potential for traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, fractures and even death.
