Bicycle riders, much like motorcycle riders, are a lot harder to see and are at greater risk to be in an accident. Even when the bicycle rider is obeying all the rules, a driver of an automobile may not be paying attention or may just be careless and strike or pull out in front of the rider. These accidents can result in very severe injuries. Even with a helmet, riders involved in these accidents may sustain severe head trauma leading to brain damage; or, back and spine injuries which can have the individual laid up recovering for quite some time. Recovering from these injuries typically means expensive treatments and loss of wages and income.
