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.

Driver Negligence That Results in a Florida Bicycle Accident
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:
- Failure to Yield to Cyclists
- Failure to Use Rear-view Mirrors When Backing Up
- Speeding or Reckless Driving
- Opening the Door of a Parked Car Without Looking for Cyclists
- Distracted Driving
- Driving while Intoxicated
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.Contact us Today
