Bicycle Accidents in Oklahoma
Bicycle accidents are highly dangerous, especially when large motor vehicles are involved. Riders only wear a helmet to protect them from injuries, which is not sufficient enough for the rest of their bodies. Therefore, they are constantly exposed to harm usually due to the negligent behavior of other drivers. When hit by a vehicle, bicyclists typically receive spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, fractured bones, limb injuries, and neck injuries. Receiving medical treatment can be strenuous and expensive. There’s a chance that some injured victims will be unable to partake in regular daily activities after an accident. Because the bicyclist in this accident received serious injuries, he could file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an attorney.
