What Are The Most Common Injuries Cyclists Suffer

Because cyclists have little to no protection, they are at a much greater risk of serious injuries when struck by a vehicle. The greater speed and weight of a car or truck compared to a bike put a cyclist in serious danger when a collision occurs.

Common injuries related to cycling accidents include the following:

  • broken limbs and/or amputations
  • spinal cord injuries & herniated discs
  • broken neck or back · facial injuries & road burn
  • traumatic brain injuries
  • organ damage & internal bleeding
  • lacerations and scarring
  • death
