Nashville Bicycle Accident Attorney: Bike Injuries on the Rise

Bike injuries are on the rise, and more people may need a Nashville Bicycle Accident Attorney than ever.

A recent CNN post caught our attention. It notes that:

“Injuries among adult bicyclists are up since 1998, according to a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, with injuries to cyclists older than 45 fueling the increase. The study’s authors analyzed data collected from about 100 U.S. emergency rooms for the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System. From 1998 to 2013, bike injuries increased by 28%, from 96 to 123 per 100,000 U.S. adults, while hospitalizations from bike injuries increased 120%, from 5.1 to 11.2 per 100,000 adults. Cyclists’ arms and legs were injured most often, but the percentage of injured cyclists with head injuries increased from 10% to 16% in that time period.”

The study also notes a disturbing 6% increase in the number of head injuries suffered by cyclists involved in bicycle accidents.

Cyclists should take the necessary safety precautions to protect themselves. Sometimes, however, those precautions aren’t enough. Sometimes roads and pathways are unreasonably dangerous, because of:

Lack of signage
Poor road drainage
Lack of warning regarding hazards
Malfunctioning traffic signals
Faded or missing lanemarkers
Burned-out streetlights
Uneven pavement
Debris on road
Poorly maintained bridges

In these situations, you may need a bicycle accident attorney to investigate your case. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers have handled bicycle accident cases.
