Statistics on Bicycle Accident in the United States
Although drivers are required to exercise reasonable care when sharing the road with cyclists, bicycle accidents happen every day throughout the US. In fact, there are approximately 4 accidents a day. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) has spent millions of dollars on an advertising campaign to educate our children about bicycle safety. The focus of the campaign has been on helmet safety, intersection, and night bicycling safety. It has been working, but still, injuries occur. While the injuries that are still happening on the roadways may not sound like much, consider the following statistics for serious and minor bicycle accidents in the U.S.:
- Head injuries contribute to 60 percent of all bike deaths.
- 1 in 8 of reported bicyclist injuries was a form of traumatic brain injury. Two-thirds of bicycle accident deaths stem from traumatic brain injuries.
- In 2012, 700 cyclists were killed and 52,000 were injured nationally.
- Seventy percent of bicycle fatalities occur in urban areas.
- The average age of bicyclists killed in traffic accidents in 2012 was 41. The average age for those injured was 31.
- 64 percent of those killed were between the ages of 25 and 64.
- 87% of fatal cycling injuries are male.
If a driver’s reckless or negligent driving caused you or a family member to be injured in a bike crash, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. With more than 20 years of experience in personal injury law, Attorney Robert Edens gets 30-60% more money for his clients than when they tried to resolve the claim directly with the insurance company.

Methods for Reducing Bicycle Accidents
Since the 1990′s there has been a significant decrease in cycling accidents and bicycle injuries due to increased awareness, educations, separate bike lanes, better safety equipment, law enforcement, and advanced planning to accommodate cyclists. The NHTSA has launched a national campaign aimed at educating the public on bicycle safety. These efforts are aimed at helmet safety, intersection safety, road crossing safety, railroad crossing safety, and night cycling safety.
