Bicycle Crashes in the State of Florida

Florida, we have over 260 days of sunny weather per year. With those averages, it’s no wonder that sports enthusiasts and active citizens are riding their bikes more often.

Bicycling is a healthy sport with plenty of benefits. However, cyclists are more vulnerable to serious bicycle accident injuries. Bicycle riders often have little to no protection on or around them. Therefore, when they are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the injuries can be severe, if not deadly.

According to the CDC, over 2.2% of fatalities in motor vehicle accidents in America involve cyclists. In Florida, that percentage is even up to 5%! The NHTSA reports that Florida has the highest rate of bicycle accident deaths in the nation.

If it doesn’t kill you, the impact of a motor vehicle can cause a number of serious injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Head injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken bones

Each one of these injuries can cost you thousands of dollars in lost wages and medical bills. But you don’t have to suffer from financial hardship!

At the law office of Brooks Law Group, we work on a contingency fee, which means that you do not have to pay us out of pocket. Learn more here.

Insurance Pay-Outs to Bicycle Accident Victims

Fact: Insurance companies will try to minimize your compensation.

This is why it is essential for bicycle accident victims to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that work hard to keep their customers’ money. Their primary goal is to maximize their profits by paying out as little as possible on all their claims.

Do not speak to an insurance company about your bicycle accident before consulting with one of the bicycle accident attorneys from Brooks Law Group. Call us for a free consultation, and do not pay a penny until we win your case.

Insurance companies will try many different tactics to reduce the amount of money they have to pay out, such as:

  • Disputing who was at fault
  • Questioning the severity of injuries
  • Putting pressure on victims to accept a quick settlement

They can use anything you say to them against you and limit your compensation.

Our skilled bicycle accident lawyers can help level the playing field by negotiating with insurance adjusters. We will conduct a thorough investigation and build a powerful case that shows the full impact of your injuries and all related damages.

DOn't forget to wear your helmetOur aim is to provide you with a winning bicycle accident case. Then insurance companies will have no choice but to give you the compensation you deserve. Our personal injury lawyers will also advise you on the best course of action. This might involve negotiating a fair settlement or taking the case to trial.

Who is at Fault in Your Bicycle Accident Case?

Florida is a no-fault state. However, that doesn’t mean you or your family member needs to suffer. Negligent drivers can and should face responsibility in a court of law.

When a driver behaves negligently or recklessly, a personal injury attorney from Brooks Law Group will investigate the bicycle incident and build a case for you.

Through a lawsuit, the negligent driver can be held accountable for any injuries or damages caused to the cyclist, including:

  • Lost work
  • Medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

Negligent behavior can include, but is not limited to:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Running a red light
  • Running a stop sign
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians
  • DUI (Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol)

In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers or riders were under the influence of alcohol in one-third of all bicycle accident cases involving a motor vehicle.

In order to prove fault in a bicycle accident case, it’s important to gather as much evidence as possible. Our lawyers can help you get statements from

  • witnesses
  • police reports
  • and other indispensable pieces of evidence to back up your case.

But it’s also critical for you to gather your own evidence. Directly after an accident, you, a friend, or a family member should always take pictures of the scene of the accident.

By doing this, you give your bicycle accident case a strong base of visual evidence in the form of clear photos of the scene, the vehicle, the bicycle, and any injuries.
