Broken Bones After Bicycle Accident
If You Suffered Fractured or Broken Bones in a California Bike Accident, Our Agoura Hills Bike Crash Legal Team Is Ready to Hear From You
Cycling is a fun pastime, offering a healthy and environmentally-conscious alternative to commuting by car. Cycling can also be very dangerous. Bike riders are not protected by a wall of metal like motorists; they are directly exposed to any impact or hazard. When a cyclist collides with a car, motorcycle, truck, or other vehicle, the cyclist is likely to suffer serious injury–including bone breaks and fractures. Broken bones are painful, debilitating, and can lead to severe complications.
The Halpern Law Firm is a full-service personal injury law firm, with a special dedication to helping injured cyclists recover after accidents. Founding partner Derryl Stephen Halpern is an avid biker who has even competed at the national level. Our attorneys care about the rights and the safety of bike riders, and we know as much as there is to know about bike accident injuries. If you’ve suffered broken or fractured bones in a Southern California bike accident, call the Halpern Law Firm today for seasoned advice and representation.
Common Broken Bones in Bike Accidents
Bone fractures and breaks are among the most common injuries suffered by bike riders after traffic accidents. Cyclists are directly exposed to the impact from the vehicle as well as the impact from the street or other solid objects. While cyclists can and should wear helmets, other forms of protective gear may not be as common and can only do so much for a cyclist struck by a vehicle.
The bike accident injury attorneys at the Halpern Law Firm help cyclists recover compensation for all manner of broken or fractured bones, including:
- Broken legs, including injury to the femur, tibia, kneecap, or fibula
- Broken hands and arms, including damage to the wrists, elbows, humerus, ulna, and radius
- Skull fractures, including damage to the brow, the cheekbones, the nose, the jaw, or other parts of the skull or face
- Broken fingers and toes
- Rib fractures and breaks
- Spinal vertebrae damage
Complications Caused by Broken Bones
Broken bones can be painful and debilitating in their own right, requiring weeks or months of care and rehabilitation to recover. Bone breaks and fractures can also lead to additional side effects and injuries, depending upon the nature, severity, and location of the break. Broken bones that perforate the skin (compound fractures) can lead to infection and other consequences, while broken ribs and other bones can cause damage to the lungs, heart, or other internal organs. Damage to the limbs may be so severe as to be irreparable, leading to dismemberment or amputation. Even a minor fracture can severely impact your way of life, preventing you from working or enjoying daily activities as you attempt to avoid triggering pain or making the injury worse.
