SAN DIEGO, California. Bike accidents can be particularly deadly for victims and their families. Bikers don’t have the protective chassis of a vehicle, meaning that bike crashes are more likely to result in serious injury or death for the rider. Serious injuries can include head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. Even when the injuries are not life-altering like major traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury, victims can still face a long road to recovery.
