Injured In a Bicycle Accident? Call Our Florida Attorneys Today.
The number of serious injuries from bike accidents in Florida is very high. When someone is injured in a bike accident, that person will typically suffer hospitalization for broken bones and other injuries. They may face months of rehabilitation therapy. They may suffer long-term problems, especially if a head injury is involved. In addition to overwhelming medical expenses, families may deal with a loss of income and other issues.

A Serious Problem That Is Growing Worse
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012, there were more than 49,000 people injured in bicycle incidents and more than 700 killed. Florida alone accounted for more than 100 of these deaths, second only to California.
Common causes of car-bike accidents include:
- Opening a car door in the path of a bicyclist (or “dooring”)
- Failing to yield to a person on a bike in an intersection
- Side-swiping a person on a bike
Many accidents can be blamed on distracted driving. Unfortunately, when a driver looks away from the road to view a text message or talk on a cellphone, it is the person on the bike who pays the price.
The number of deaths from bike accidents in Florida is very high, and family members often have to deal with a number of unexpected issues, including the loss of income from a loved one, loss of companionship and significant medical bills as well as burial costs. While we understand that no amount of money will ever compensate your family for the loss of a loved one, we can help you deal with financial issues caused by the death.
Families who have had loved ones involved in a bike accident are encouraged to contact our attorneys as soon as possible. We are committed to ensuring that you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
