Bicyclist struck by car, suffers traumatic brain injury

A Maryland student was injured after he was struck by a car while he was riding his bicycle recently. Police say the accident occurred near the campus of the University of St. Thomas on a recent Saturday morning in November. The bicyclist is currently in critical condition, and he has suffered a traumatic brain injury.

The student, a senior majoring in electrical engineering from Maple Grove, was biking around 11:45 a.m. when he was hit by a car. The force of the collision caused him to be thrown into the windshield of another vehicle. The side of the man's head took the brunt of the impact, which caused him to suffer a traumatic brain injury.

The student was rushed to a local hospital. There, he underwent five hours of surgery, which successfully relieved the pressure on his brain. He was then transferred into the intensive care unit. He is currently capable of opening his eyes, nodding his head and following instructions; doctors hope his breathing tube may be removed soon.

When individuals are involved in accidents that result in suffering a traumatic brain injury, they or their loved ones may not know how to handle the sudden onslaught of medical bills and the cost of rehabilitation and physical therapy. If the accident was caused due to the proved negligence of another party, the family or loved ones may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the party believed to have caused the accident. Successfully navigated, this type of claim may result in financial compensation awarded to the victim's family. Maryland families in similar situations typically start this process by consulting an experienced personal injury attorney.
