Although bicycle accidents are not as common as other types of traffic collisions, they often cause serious injuries when they do occur. A bicycle and rider stand virtually no chance in a collision with a motor vehicle, whether a small passenger car or a large commercial truck. The rider of the bicycle may experience catastrophic, life-changing injuries. Even wearing a helmet and other protective gear, the rider will likely be injured, even in a relatively low-speed collision. However, the extent of the injuries sustained will vary, depending on the particular incident.
