Bicycles Will Soon Be Everywhere As Spring And Summertime Are Fast Approaching

  • Story Highlights:

Winter has almost completely come and gone now. The temperatures are already rising, and before Floridians even realize it, the first day of spring will be here on Friday, March 20, 2020. Then, summer is not that far off as it begins on Saturday, June 20, 2020. With the exceptional weather rolling in, bicyclists will be hitting paths and sharing roadways with cars. Many people choose the mode of transportation to get around.

For some, it is a way for them to get in some much-needed exercise and get into shape. Meanwhile, others choose to ride their bikes to save money. After all, they don't need fuel or insurance with a bicycle. Then again, there are those that go from place to place on the two-wheels to do their part in curbing global warming. By not driving cars, they are not emitting harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

Not everything is sunshine and rainbows when it comes to riding bikes, though. If a passenger vehicle operator is negligent, the bicyclists can become struck. Such incidents happen quite more often than what most folks believe. According to Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 6,675 bicycle crashes in 2017 alone. They resulted in 6,263 injuries and 128 fatalities.

Common Damages Associated With Bicycle Accidents


Bicyclists that are lucky enough to walk away from episodes with their lives intact still have to deal with issues. After all, helmets, knee, and elbow pads can only do so much against a 3,000 or so pound passenger vehicle. Not to mention, if he or she gets thrown through the air, the protective equipment may protect them from the hard pavement. Some common injuries cyclists sustain during such events include but are not limited to...

• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Internal Organ Damage
• Paralysis
• Loss Of Limbs
• Traumatic Brain Injury

Persons Might Be Able To Recover Compensation For Their Wounds


If it can be proven that the passenger vehicle operator was negligent, the bicyclists may be able to use the legal system to recover compensation. Negligence includes things like speeding, failing to yield the right of way, driving under the influence of alcohol, and texting while behind the wheel. Our accident attorneys can help you prove negligence via witness statements, surveillance camera footage, police reports, cell phone records, and more.

The team has over 150 years of combined experience. Plus, together, they have more than 10,000 successful cases. Our lawyers have recovered over $500 million in compensation for victims through verdicts and settlements. They will even come to the hospital or a person's home to meet with them. To make things even better, the initial case review is free. That means individuals don't have to break the bank to discover where their claim stands.

Also, personal injury cases are paid on a contingency fee basis. As such, clients only pay if compensation is awarded. Hence, if you have been injured in a bicycle accident, perhaps, there has never been a better time than now to make the call.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
