Can a bicycle accident change your life?

When Illinois bike riders like you seek help from the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid after your accident, you can expect to receive the most accurate information that can be used to prove you were not at fault. Being prepared to prove fault in a bicycle accident can mean the difference between a difficult road to recovery and a tolerable one, especially since bicycle accidents easily change your life.

Bicycles are not exactly an armored fortress of a vehicle. Even if you suit up with a helmet and all the padding necessary, if it comes down to your body against a metal car that may be going very quickly, you’re bound to lose. This can result in a number of traumatic injuries, including:

  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Spine or brain injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Muscular damage

While some injuries will likely heal over time, there are others that may impact you for years or perhaps the rest of your life. These injuries can include the above mentioned damage to the brain, spine, or nerves. While concussions or fractures will heal, severed nerves can cause you to have pain or numbness permanently. Enough damage to the spine can also cause partial or whole paralysis. Unfortunately, even slow-moving or low impact accidents can have massive effects on your overall health.

When seeking the proper compensation for your traumatic bicycle accident, being able to prove yourself and understand what you’re fighting against is key. To gain that improved understanding, check out our web page on bicycle crashes.
