Bike Accident Attorneys in Albany
Working Tirelessly on Your Behalf for the Compensation You Deserve
Bicyclists are at a substantially higher risk of injury than most others if an accident were to occur. A bike, after all, is no match for any vehicle. Although some bicyclists are lucky enough to walk away from an accident with minor injuries, others have to live with the catastrophic results of colliding with a motor vehicle. At Schillinger and Associates, PLLC in Albany, our experienced personal injury team will provide the aggressive representation you need to obtain fair and just compensation if you were injured in an accident caused by another party’s negligence.
Common Bike Accident Injuries
Bike accident injuries can range in severity. Common minor injuries include fractures, lacerations, contusions, strains, and abrasions. However, other accidents can result in more serious injuries.
Below is a list of some of the most common severe bike accident injuries:
- Traumatic brain injuries, such as skull fractures and concussions
- Rib fractures
- Pancreatic trauma
- Dental and facial fractures
- Ruptured spleen
- Renal contusions
It is also possible to fracture or break any bone in the body, such as your ankles, hip, or femur. Eye injuries are not as common, but can still happen.
Moreover, after being involved in a bike accident, it is crucial to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you believe your injuries are minor or you are not experiencing any pain. Symptoms can present themselves in the coming days and weeks and seeing a doctor in the immediate aftermath can protect your health and support your claim.
