Your "Brain Bucket" only protects your cranium.
The Tampa Bay Area’s bicycle accident lawyer
A bicycle accident often results in serious injury to the biker and little damage to the car or truck that hit the cyclist. Sometimes, a car or truck driver who hits or cuts off a bicycle does not even realize it and drives away without stopping. Like pedestrian accidents
, bicycle accidents often result in brain injuries
, back (spinal cord) injuries
, fractures, and skin burns, whether or not the victim was wearing a helmet. In addition to these catastrophic injuries, a bicyclist hit by a car may suffer a broken wrist or knee injury. At Woodruff Injury Law
, our staff helps clients coordinate medical care and medical benefits from a variety of policies to see that they receive the care they need. If you were injured in a hit and run accident, there may be coverage under an uninsured motorist
provision in your own motor vehicle policy or in a family member’s policy. For all of these reasons, it is important to contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after a bicycle crash, while physical evidence and eyewitnesses are still available.
Wearing a bike helmet does not always help
Of course we recommend wearing a “brain bucket
” to keep your head safe. It may be the one thing that saves your life. Remember, that is keeps your cranium from cracking open, but does little to protect the rest of you body.
