Bicycling is a way of life for many citizens in Florida. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to share the road with bicyclists and vehicle collisions often result.
With nothing more than a helmet to protect them, the bicyclist is usually the one who is seriously injured if he or she is struck by a car.Even a bicyclist hit by a car traveling at slow speeds can sustain severe injuries like broken bones, brain injuries and paralysis. In addition to being painful and taking victims away from work and other daily activities, injuries can also be very expensive. Hospitalization, physical therapy, surgery and other treatments can quickly add up, even with health insurance.
It's bad enough when these injuries stem from what was truly an accident. But if you were hit by a careless or reckless driver, you have the right to hold that person responsible for the results of his or her actions. Filing a Florida bicycle accident lawsuit allows you to claim the costs of all of your medical bills, past and future, as well as the wages you lost and any other costs related to the accident. You are also entitled to losses for permanent disability or your pain and trauma.
If you were hurt in a bicycle accident with a careless motorist, you have the right to hold that person responsible for the results -- medical, financial and personal. Please call if we can help.
