True, but I am most concerned about the 'dragged underneath a taxi' scenario. In neither of my bike failures was there much financial loss. One was a bike that I had purchased new and it was fully covered under warranty. The other was a bike bought used but a local frame maker was able to repair it for $25. The bike was fixed long before I was back to normal and I still have some visible scars 35 years later (still have the bike as well).
