As gasoline has gotten more expensive and environmental concerns have become more apparent, many people are choosing bicycles as a better way for transportation. Riding a bicycle brings many benefits, as they are cost-effective, more mobile than vehicles, free of pollutants, and provide exercise. However, bicycles also pose a heightened risk of injuries, particularly serious traumatic brain injury, because of their compact size and exposed nature. Head injury is the leading cause of bicycle-related death, and something as simple as a properly fitting bicycle helmet can reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury by 88 percent. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury while riding a bicycle, you could be entitled to recovery. The best way to determine if you are entitled to compensation is to schedule a consultation with the experienced traumatic brain injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.

How Can I Avoid a Traumatic Brain Injury While Riding my Bicycle?

You can reduce the risk to you or your child from suffering a traumatic brain injury in a bicycle-related accident by:

  • Wearing an approved, properly-fitting bicycle helmet. This is the easiest and most important way to avoid a traumatic brain injury, as helmets can greatly reduce your risk.
  • Properly maintain your bicycle and check it frequently for problems or defects that might hinder your ability to ride safely.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Ride on the right side of the road with traffic.
  • Use correct hand signals.
  • Stop at intersections, crosswalks, and before entering a street.
  • Yield to pedestrians and other inhabitants of the road when appropriate.
