Failure To Wear A Bike Helmet, Can Lead A Jury To Reduce An Award To An Innocent Bicyclist

Failure To Wear A Bike Helmet, Can Lead A Jury To Reduce An Award To An Innocent Bicyclist

The Daily Dish is reporting that “Two and a Half Men” actor Jon Cryer was fearful that he had sustained a serious injury in a recent bicycle accident, when he heard his helmet “cracking” when his head hit the pavement.

Cryer was participating in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, an 18 mile bike trip, a four mile run and a swim in the ocean, but he pulled out midway after he fell off his bike. He was photographed appearing bruised and bloodied after the accident, and he has now revealed his injuries could have been a lot worse.

He told a reporter that while he had a great bicycle, he is not a pro bicyclist and got super aggressive as he was going downhill which led to the crash. He stated that the bike leotard he was wearing broke his fall but gave him zero protection otherwise. Cryer credits wearing a bike helmet to have prevented a serious head injury.

The actor presented to his physician who confirmed that he had not broken any bones or sustained a permanent injury. He stated that he found it most difficult after sustaining a shoulder and leg injury to reach for the parking ticket at his doctor’s office.
