Bicycle accident injuries range widely in both type and severity. Due to the physical forces involved, as well as a bicycle’s lack of structural protection, cyclists are often seriously injured when hit by a vehicle. As seen in many Chicago-area accidents, some cyclists are fatally injured during a crash.
On this site, types of bicycle accidents are discussed on the “Chicago Bicycle Accidents” page. Reasons that bicycle accidents occur, and the associated injuries, are discussed on the “Chicago Bicycle Accident Injuries” page.
