Bicycle Accidents in Ohio
When pedaling in Ohio, there is virtually no protection for the rider. In 2019, 843 cyclists lost their lives in car incidents in the United States. The number of cyclists dying on the road has grown by more than 36% since 2010. That year marked an all-time low for cyclist fatalities. Head trauma is responsible for the majority of severe injuries sustained in bicycle crashes.
Collisions between bikes and careless or negligent motorists often result in serious or fatal wounds to the rider. Bicyclists who suffer fractured bones, spinal cord injuries, or traumatic brain injuries could face a lengthy and costly healing period. These folks may also encounter financial difficulties if they are forced to take time off work to heal from their injuries. Injured bicyclists may have rights under the law to seek compensation when a bicycle accident is caused by another person’s bad decisions.
