Common Questions About Florida Bicycle Accidents

If you have personal injury questions about your specific bicycle accident, do not hesitate to contact me today.

What are some typical causes of bicycle accidents in Florida?

The most common reason bicyclists get injured is inattentive or reckless driving by car and truck drivers. Other common causes of bicycle accidents include the following actions of drivers of cars and trucks:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Using a cellphone or texting while driving
  • Changing radio stations, eating, grooming or otherwise driving while distracted
  • Failing to yield or running a red light or stop sign
  • Making an illegal turn
  • Speeding

All of these actions are considered forms of negligence. Contact my Florida law office to discuss what to do after a bicycle accident.

How can bicyclists get compensation for their injuries?

Under Florida personal injury law, when an accident is caused by the negligence or reckless actions of another person, that person is liable for paying damages to the victim. In many cases, that means the driver’s insurance company ends up being responsible for paying the injury victim for things like medical expenses, lost income, lost earning capacity and other costs resulting from the injury. As a bicycle accident lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, I have a long record of success in holding negligent drivers and insurance companies accountable. I can answer your questions, explain your options and help you get the maximum available compensation for your bike accident injuries.

According to personal injury law, does the person who hit me have to replace my damaged bicycle?

Getting your bicycle repaired or replaced is not part of a personal injury case, but at my law firm, my team and I often successfully bring property damage claims against negligent parties. I do not charge extra for this service. I will ask if your bicycle had specialized parts or custom features when I prepare a legal demand against the negligent driver, their insurer or possibly your own insurer. I will not tolerate offers of discounts on a new bicycle. I will work hard to get your bike replaced.

What if you can’t ride a replacement bicycle because of your bike injuries?

In that case, I will still fight to make sure your property loss is accounted for.

What if a hit-and-run accident caused your bicycle injuries?

I will work with law enforcement agencies and/or private investigators to try to find the at-fault driver. If that vehicle and driver are never found, I can help you bring a claim through your uninsured and underinsured driver coverage in your auto insurance or that of someone you live with.
