Bicycle Accident Injuries in Colorado Springs

In Colorado Springs, some common bicycle accident injuries may include head and neurological trauma, facial injuries, spine damage, bone fractures, broken bones, ruptured discs, and wrongful death. One of the biggest differences that could lead to more serious injuries is how exposed a bicyclist is when they are out on the streets compared to the driver of a motor vehicle. That exposure leads the bicycle rider open to more serious injuries if they are involved in a car-versus-bicycle accident. When an accident happens, the impact directly hits the bicyclists whereas a motorist has some level of protection in their vehicle.

Some of the factors that could contribute to the severity of bike accident injuries may include the speed of the automobile or the bicycle, whether or not the cyclist was wearing a helmet and/or protective gear, whether or not the cyclist was distracted or under the influence.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Following a Bike Accident

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury. A TBI can result from a bicycle accident if the cyclist falls and hits their head directly on the ground or crashes into a car or object with their bicycle.

Traumatic brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose because they are not typically visible.  The Mayo Clinic states some signs of a traumatic brain injury may include loss of consciousness, headaches, nausea or vomiting, fatigue or drowsiness, problems with speech, difficulty sleeping, sleeping more than usual, dizziness or loss of balance, and sensory issues.

Sensory problems may include blurred vision, ringing in the ears, a bad taste in the mouth, changes in the ability to smell, sensitivity to light or sound. Cognitive or mental symptoms may include memory or concentration problems, mood changes or mood swings, feeling depressed or anxious. These injuries can take significant time to heal and may potentially require surgery.

Broken Bones in a Cycling Accident

Broken bones can occur in a variety of ways when a cyclist collides with a vehicle. For instance, a bicyclist may lose control because of their speed, encounter a pothole, or veer off course and hit something.

There are some areas that are more vulnerable to broken bones, such as the arms, collarbone, hands or wrists, skull, legs, back, face, and pelvis. The force of the impact and whether the rider was wearing a helmet and protective equipment may determine the severity of the injuries or the break. Other examples of injuries that may occur because of a bicycle wreck include dental injuries, facial damage and scarring, jaw fractures, joint dislocation, nerve damage, road rash or spinal cord injuries.

Receiving Medical Attention in Colorado Springs

Doctors are going to respond generally in the same way that they would respond to somebody injured in a motor vehicle accident but with care. The issue here is going to be the severity of the injuries from being on a bicycle accident versus a motor vehicle wreck. The doctors may have to act more quickly depending in the severity of the injuries. First doctors would assess the situation, come up with a plan as to whether or not the person needs surgery, and then create a treatment plan that may involve physical therapy.
