More and more riders are taking to their bicycles as a mode of transportation in Southern California. Unfortunately, this also means that the number of cyclists who are injured in bike accidents is also increasing. While most cyclists take care to observe the rules of the road, even most skilled bicycle rider can be a victim of a careless driver.

- Head / brain injury
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Acetabular fracture (broken pelvis)
- Ankle fractures
- Fractured collarbone (clavicle)
