Reasons To Hire A Lawyer For A Bicycle Accident


With so much carnage revolving around car and truck accidents, bicycles often become lost in the mix. However, with rising gas prices, insurance costs, and various other elements, more and more cyclists are becoming found on our Florida roadways. Bike lanes, safety attire, and even insightful ads to share the roads offer some protection against accidents, but there is still a genuine possibility that one can occur. Tourists can be found daily riding bicycles to soak in the sun, and many residents use them for commuting to work. Drivers of vehicles, riders of bikes, and anyone else between, should remain vigilant in their quest to stay safe, always be aware of their surroundings, and with any luck, accidents will be avoidable.

Filing a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company is often the only course of action that victims feel the need to take. However, just like with any other personal injury case, these organizations attempt to discredit the wounds or the individual that received them. In many cases, they will even try to side-step responsibility. These actions can delay proceedings, and when you are relying on the money to cover expenses, a lingering case can become devastating to the process. You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, and other items of this nature. Our firm offers free case reviews, so if you feel that legal action is in your best interest, don’t hesitate to give our office a call.

The Top 2 Reasons For Hiring A Lawyer After A Bicycle Accident

1. Hire an attorney to relieve the burden of collecting evidence from your shoulders.

Dealing with officers, insurance adjusters, and witnesses are not the easiest of tasks. However, gathering the evidence to support a claim is essential for success. Not knowing what, why, or how to get the proof is the biggest obstacle that victims typically face when seeking retribution for injuries on their own. Our firm has over 100 years of combined Florida legal experience, and we are prepared, willing, and able to show you why so many members of the community have allowed us to represent them in their time of need. Injuries that become sustained from bicycle accidents are often life altering, and they cause harm both physically and mentally, so contact us to learn what your legal options are to help you reach a full recovery.

2. Reconstructing the crime scene is sometimes a necessity, and hiring a lawyer can prove to be beneficial to the process.

Recreating an accident scene may become required to help determine fault in the case. Evidence may be needed to show that a driver’s negligent act caused the injuries to occur. An illegal pass, turning without signaling, or swerving left instead of right, can all be contributing factors to reaching the desired compensatory result. Our experience, knowledge, and helpful contacts allow these types of reconstructions to take place. You are more than welcome to attempt this task on your own, but if it becomes too overwhelming just know that we are here to help.

Use hand signals, wear proper safety equipment, and try to avoid busy intersections or highways while riding your bike to attempt to stay healthy, and hopefully, you will not be in need of our services. We understand that every person and accident is unique and different, so our team goes above and beyond to ensure that we exceed your customer service expectations. Let our lawyers personalize your experience and make an effort to retrieve the fair compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
