How a bicycle accident takes place?
Bicycle accidents are common, but the claims are much complicated. The claim can be challenging as the insurance company will always try to make excuses to avoid the liabilities. Bicycle accidents can take place due to six major reasons:
The accident caused by a vehicle turning into a cyclist’s path.
Accidents caused when the driver fails to see cyclists in the lane.
Accidents caused at a junction.
Accidents caused due to negligence or speeding vehicle.
Accidents caused due to vehicle door opening-unnoticed.
Accidents caused due to bad road conditions.
Types of injuries sustained by the victim
Minor scratches or inflammation
Injuries on soft tissues
Minor and major fractures
Head injury (which is most dangerous)
Major or minor SCI (Spinal cord injury)
