Florida is an extremely dangerous state for bicyclists. This is due to the presence of more elderly drivers, densely populated cities, and tourists who are unfamiliar with the road. Although many cities are either adding or increasing the size of bike lanes, accidents still occur. If you’ve been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you have a right to seek compensation for damages.
At Felice & Ehrlich, we’ve been providing personal injury attorney to the people of West Palm Beach and the entire state of Florida for years. We understand what it takes to build a strong case after an accident that was caused by driver negligence. It’s our goal to protect your rights and ensure you get back on your feet as quickly as possible. Contact us today at (561) 444-8822.
According to Florida bicycle laws, cyclists have the same rights and duties as other motorists on the road. Unfortunately, when driver negligence leads to a vehicle/bicycle accident, the cyclist is usually the one who sustains major injuries. Even while wearing a helmet, a bicyclist can still sustain injuries that could lead to permanent disability.
Proving negligence is the primary goal when filing a personal injury claim after an injury. Some of the most common forms of driver negligence in bicycle accidents include:
These situations can result in a direct collision between a vehicle and cyclist. The rider may also be forced into traffic while trying to avoid an accident and end up being struck by another vehicle. Regardless of the scenario, these accidents can easily lead to serious injuries and even death.
Cyclists must take precautions while riding alongside traffic. Helmets, reflective clothing, and lights are all highly recommended. However, sometimes an accident comes out of nowhere and there’s nothing the cyclist can do to prevent it. This can result in a wide range of serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained in bicycle accidents include:
If you’ve sustained any type of injury after a bicycle accident, it’s important you seek medical attention and follow up with your doctor’s recommended treatments. At Felice & Ehrlich, our attorneys will evaluate your injuries, medical bills, and any other damages such as lost wages to determine the right compensation to fight for. We’ll negotiate with insurance companies trying to get you to settle for less than you deserve. If we don’t get an appropriate settlement, we’re not afraid to fight for your rights in a court of law.
