Bicycle Accident Lawyers Serving Cheyenne, Casper, Laramie, and Beyond
Common injuries of cyclists who have been struck by a motor vehicle include:
Brain and head injuries: These injuries can range from concussions to severe head trauma. Any head injury, no matter how minor it may seem, should be treated with immediate medical attention.
Back, neck, and spine injuries: Injuries of the back, neck, and spine are painful and can result in ongoing disability. Nerves extend from the spine to the rest of the body and can cause pain in the extremities. Fractures of the neck and spine are dangerous and difficult to treat.
Fractures: Although most non-displaced fractures will heal with immobilization (often with a cast), other fractures will require surgical repair. Many people will require a course of physical therapy after their fracture has healed in order to restore full movement and function.
