Types of Bicycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Florida is the most dangerous state for cyclists. Most fatal bicycle accidents involve motor vehicles, with over half of them occurring at an intersection in the United States. Despite wearing the proper equipment, such as helmets, reflective vests, and other padding, common injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, concussions, lacerations, and bruising.
Bicycle accidents occur most often by the following:
- When a vehicle is making a right across a bike lane without signaling
- When a driver opens their door without looking first
- When a vehicle backs up unexpectedly
- Road hazards
- Inclement weather
