The Statistics For Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists are vulnerable to injuries on the roadway. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are around 500,000 bicycle rider injuries each year in the US.

Even when a bicyclist wears a helmet, they are still at risk of serious injuries when struck by a vehicle, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Poorly designed and poorly maintained roadways affect bicyclists more than other roadways users. Those responsible for roadway maintenance could be held liable for crash injuries.

In and around Monmouth County, particularly the larger townships of Middletown, Howell, Marlboro, Manalapan, and Freehold,  there are plenty of bicycle riders. They should never have to worry about a negligent driver causing them harm.
