Posted by Ken Doane | Dec 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

When a bicyclist is struck by a vehicle, the suffering brought on by the accident may disrupt their lives and those who are close to them. People often recognize that the loss of life and serious injuries are an unfortunate aspect of bike wrecks. However, it is also vital to keep in mind the other consequences that victims may face. If you were hit by a car while riding your bike, you could be going through these difficulties on a personal level.

Bike accidents can scar victims in different ways. Sometimes, these accidents bring on mental suffering, such as an inability to ride a bicycle again or flashbacks. Someone may also have their dreams crushed, as an accident interferes with their ability to compete in a race. In terms of personal finance, these accidents can also be very hard for victims. For example, a crash may leave someone with hospital bills, or a family with funeral costs that they are not sure how to pay. Being unable to work can also result in financial challenges.

Whether a bicyclist is hit while training for a competition or simply riding their bike to work or school, these and other consequences can be truly devastating. Often, victims need financial resources and other forms of assistance to move on in their lives and it is also paramount for negligent drivers to be held accountable.
