Bicycle Accidents Happen, But Florida Residents Don’t Have To Face The Aftermath Alone

Unless a person has been hiding out in a secure, underground bunker somewhere for the past decade, they know that car ownership can get pretty pricey. Aside from the initial vehicle purchase, the buyer must also obtain insurance, pay for maintenance, and fill up the tank time and time again. Just thinking about the price of gas these days is enough to make a person cringe. All of these things contribute to more and more people finding alternate forms of transportation. Therefore, many Florida residents are turning to their bicycles to travel between locations. Additionally, tourists regularly rent bikes and ride them throughout the area.

The exercise does the body good, and it helps people stay healthy and fit. Bikes are also beneficial tools for assisting folks in going green as they do not send contaminants into the atmosphere. However, with so many riders gathering in the vicinity, bicycle accidents are becoming regular occurrences. While crashing one of the two-wheelers might not seem like too big of a deal, when cars get involved, the incidents leave people with severe injuries. Damages from these events often include…

• Head And Brain Injuries
• Loss Of Limbs
• Death
• Fractures Or Broken Bones
• Full Or Partial Paralysis
• Internal Bleeding Or Organ Damage

Of course, not all bicycle accidents will require a person to seek medical attention, but the ones that do can become costly in a hurry. Medical bills pile up, along with everyday necessities, and the injured party may find it difficult to pay for their expenses, especially if they are missing work due to the injury. Luckily, the individual may be able to seek compensation for their damages and offset these costs.

Should You Hire A Lawyer?

Proving fault in a bicycle accident is not always an easy feat. The victim must be able to show that another party acted negligently. A lawyer can collect the evidence that you need for a winning case. For instance, they will gather police reports, interview witnesses, obtain medical records as required, and even have the accident scene recreated whenever necessary. All of these things help them prove that negligence took place. When a car and bike collide, common types of neglect frequently include…

• Distracted Driving
• Running Red-Lights Or Stop Signs
• Speeding, Improper Passing, And Following Too Closely
• Failure To Yield The Right Of Way
