Bicyclists are unquestionably vulnerable to serious injuries when they are involved in an accident, especially when crashes involve a motor vehicle such as a car or truck. Unfortunately, these kinds of incidents happen regularly, and there is no way you can reduce your risk of getting into an accident to zero without giving up riding entirely.
Fortunately, there are ways you can mitigate the risk that you will be injured in an accident, and modern technology has made it possible to ride more safely than was possible in the past. Here are some relatively new innovations that can reduce your risk of injury while you ride around the Indianapolis area:
Even with the most advanced protection available, people who are involved in bicycle accidents can still sustain extremely serious injuries that have long-term consequences, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, serious soft-tissue injuries, and broken bones. Many bicycle accident victims are able to recover for their injuries by filing a personal injury claim, however, so it is highly recommended that anyone hurt while riding speaks to a lawyer as soon as possible.
