Bicycle Accidents in Layton, Utah – What You Should Know

While the number of collisions involving cyclists in Utah has been falling over recent years, the potential risks involved remain the same. Wearing a helmet can, of course, significantly reduce your likelihood of sustaining serious head injuries, however, anyone riding a bicycle in an urban area or on a busy road remains vulnerable to head injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and more, each of which could prove fatal.

In many cases, bicycle accidents happen because of the behavior of motorists in the moments leading up to the crash, including:

  • Failure to pay due care and attention while observing the surrounding
  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failure to yield, change lanes properly, and similar offenses

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, due to the negligence or reckless behavior of a motorist, our bicycle accident attorneys could provide the legal guidance and support you require at this trying time.

Common Injuries Arising from Layton Bicycle Accidents

Common injuries suffered by cyclists who have been hit by a vehicle driven by a careless driver include:

  • Crushed limbs, broken ribs, a punctured lung
  • Spinal cord injuries and crushed vertebrae
  • Ligament damage, such as tears and rips
  • Fractures of bones, such as the arms, legs, or hips
  • Cuts, bruises, and skin damage caused by friction

Each of these injuries has the potential to wreak havoc on the life of a bicycle accident victim, particularly one belonging to minor or elderly cyclists, both of whom are most likely to become involved in a collision.
