Injuries to Cyclists in Hawaii

Honolulu, HI - Bicyclist Seriously Injured by Hit-and-Run Driver at King St and Ward Ave

When cyclists are hit by larger, heavier automobiles, the injuries they usually receive are quite serious. A human body, frail as it is, is absolutely no match for a truck, car, or even a motorcycle, especially one in motion. Additionally, riders can easily be ejected from their bicycles and receive secondary injuries after they come into abrupt contact with the asphalt, another vehicle, structures, or buildings in the vicinity of the accident.

Some of the most common kinds of injuries that cyclists in Hawaii sustain include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Contusions and lacerations
  • Damage to the spinal cord
  • Damage to vital internal organs

These and numerous other injuries that are often the result of drivers striking cyclists can result in a considerable amount of pain, both physical and emotional. Additionally, injuries this serious can keep an injured victim from working for weeks or even months, resulting in a substantial loss of income. In extremely severe cases, a victim might even need an in-home carer available to them 24 hours a day to assist them with their daily needs.  

A skilled attorney can help you obtain financial compensation for these and other damages you may have incurred due to your bike accident.
