When a bicycle accident occurs it’s important to quickly identify all parties involved to address potential liability.
With great weather, active residents, and tons of tourists, cycling is one of the most common forms of transportation in South Florida. But all that added traffic comes with an increase in accidents involving bicycles, pedestrians, and vehicles. The Center for Disease Control estimates that there are nearly 1,000 bicycle accidents every week making it one of the most common personal injury claims made. Depending on the accident, a bicycle accident attorney may be able to help you collect lost wages, medical expenses, or other benefits.
In Florida, cyclists are treated the same as other vehicles and are required to follow the same laws regarding operation of a motor vehicle. This often time puts cyclists at odds with cars and can result in accidents where one side receives significantly more damage than the other. Did a car fail to yield the right of way or use excess speed to overtake a cyclist leading to a bicycle accident? When that happens, injured parties are at risk of losing the ability to earn wages during recovery on top of medical bills.
