Soft Tissue Injuries in Bike Accidents

Experienced Bicycle Accident Attorneys in Orange County

Soft tissue injuries are any injuries that affect the skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments and they are one of the most common types of bicycle accident-related injuries. Severe soft tissue injuries are most frequently caused by trauma, though overuse and straining can also lead to debilitating soft tissue injuries.

If you suffered soft tissue injuries in a cycling accident, you may be able to recover financial compensation if someone else’s negligence led to the crash. At Bike Legal, our Orange County soft tissue injury lawyers have spent more than 35 years exclusively representing injured cyclists in California and, because many of our key staff members are cyclists themselves, we understand exactly what you are going through and the challenges you face.

To discuss your injury claim with a bicycle accident attorney at our firm during a free initial consultation, call (800) 449-4850 or submit an online contact form.

Examples of Soft Tissue Injuries

Some of the most common soft tissue injuries resulting from bike accidents include:

  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Bruises/contusions
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Avulsions (open wounds)
  • Scrapes and abrasions

After a bike crash, it is very common for cyclists to experience multiple soft tissue injuries along with other injuries, like clavicle fractures and, in severe cases, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can be very severe, requiring extensive medical treatment and preventing you from getting back out on your bike for some time. If someone else’s negligence led to your injuries, you shouldn’t have to suffer these and other consequences on your own.
