What Are Some Of The Most Common Injuries In Bicycle Accidents?

While every bicycle accident-related injury will be different, bicyclists are commonly known to suffer bone fractures in accidents. Unfortunately, our bones aren’t able to withstand certain forces put on them.

  1. Broken collarbone (also known as a clavicle fracture)
  2. Broken ankle
  3. Broken arm
  4. Broken leg
  5. Broken fingers
  6. Broken hands
  7. Broken toes
  8. Broken feet
  9. Broken nose
  10. Broken jaw
