Aurora Primary Students Get New Bike Helmets | Aurora Bike Accident Lawyer

According to KDVR news, the University of Colorado Medical Center is presenting an event at Fletcher Primary School in Aurora. 300 helmets were donated to Fletcher by CU Hospital, with medical students from CU presenting the helmets and talking to the young students about bicycle safety and the importance that helmets have for safety.  One 3rd-grader told  KDVR that after learning how badly he could get hurt in an accident, he makes sure to wear a helmet. The principal at Fletcher said that one thing she enjoys about this event is giving the primary school students  a chance to meet some medical students who can talk about keeping up with school and following their dreams. All around, this is a great event for the kids at Fletcher.

Has your child been injured in a bicycle accident? Speak with an experienced Aurora bike accident lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options.

The article goes on to state that nearly 400,000 children are taken to emergency rooms in the United States after being in bicycle accidents. Of course, one of the greatest dangers of cycling is the very limited protection afforded riders in the event of a crash. According to safety experts, helmets can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 80%.

Head injuries are extremely dangerous, especially to children. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect is the potential for long-term injuries requiring repeated doctor visits, that may result in ever-increasing medical bills. Some bike accidents that don’t seem particularly serious at first can escalate over time, because many head injury symptoms don’t present themselves right away. If your child has suffered a head injury in a bicycle accident, contact a dedicated Aurora bike accident lawyer as soon as possible. If your child hits his or her head in an accident, it is critical to seek medical attention immediately.
