Bicycle Accidents in Nevada
Bicycle accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents on our roads. In 2019 alone, it was reported that approximately 7 lives were lost and hundreds of people were injured as a result of these accidents. Bicyclists have no protection from harm against those in passenger vehicles, which is why the injuries that result from these accidents tend to be incredibly severe. Some of the most popular injuries that result from bicycle accidents include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, road rash, organ damage, fractures, and more. You have many options as you move forward after a bicycle accident that is not your fault.
