Common Causes of Bicycle-Related TBIs
While many avid cyclists follow best safety practices by wearing helmets while on the road, others do not. In California, anyone over the age of 17 is not required by law to wear a bicycle helmet, and many people choose to ride without them. Unfortunately, this is one of the primary reasons for the prevalence of bicycle accident-related brain injuries.
Additionally, in very severe accidents, a cyclist may suffer a TBI even when he or she was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. This may be the case when the helmet was defective or when it was simply unable to withstand the force of the collision.
Some of the most common causes of bike crash-related TBIs include:
Failure to wear a helmet
High-speed cyclist vs. cyclist accidents
Failure to wear a helmet correctly
Regardless of the reason, TBIs are incredibly devastating. Victims often suffer severe, life-altering effects, such as loss of cognitive function, reduced mobility, lost independence, inability to work, and inability to ride. Even in less severe cases, TBI victims will require extensive medical treatment and will most likely have to take some time off work to recover. All of this can quickly become very costly, adding additional burdens on victims and their families.
