Bicycling accidents have been often discussed on this site, as they often lead to a range of serious if not life-threatening accident injuries. There are many reasons as to why bicycling accidents typically result in serious injuries. One of these reasons is that the person riding the bicycle often bears the majority of the impact force. This force can cause very strong and unnatural forces to be transferred to the bicyclist during the collision.
