Our lawyers will stand up to insurance companies and legal teams that may be trying to prevent you from compensation. We'll make them pay.

The Heavy Toll Of A Bike Accident

A bicycle accident can be one of the most severe types of accidents on Florida roads. The lack of protection a cyclist will have, combined with the heavier mass and higher speeds of vehicles, means that an accident can cause serious injuries including:

  • Dismemberment
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Permanent disability
  • Death

Along with the difficult road to a physical recovery, these injuries can also lead to serious financial hardship for victims. As such, it's important to take whatever steps you can to make a total recovery and protect your financial future. Contacting our legal team is the best way work towards getting any compensation that you may be owed.

Can You Seek Compensation?

Under Florida law, you have the right to seek compensation if you can show that your injuries were caused by the reckless, negligent actions of someone else. In a St Petersburg bicycle accident, these reckless or negligent actions can include the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield right of way to pedestrians
  • Failure to maintain a vehicle properly
  • A hit and run crash

This can still involve effort, and having an attorney on your side is the best way to ensure that your case proceeds properly. Our legal team will work with experts to gather evidence and negotiate for a settlement that is fair for you and that will help you get your life back on track. We make sure you get the most from your settlement so you don't have to struggle to make ends meet.

What Damages Can You Seek?

There are numerous factors that influence a settlement's overall amount, and knowing what is a fair settlement offer means being able to look at numerous factors. Some of the main damages that could be awarded to a victim of a St Petersburg bicycle accident include:

  • Medical bills associated with the accident
  • Future estimated medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Future potential lost wages related to the accident
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Each of these will need to be considered carefully and factored into your settlement, which is why our team of attorneys consults with experts in the medical field as well as economists to ensure that your settlement is fair for your injuries and your situation. The ultimate goal is to get you back to a place that you would have been had you never been involved in an accident at all.

Standing Up For Your Rights

One of the biggest challenges with personal injury cases and with St Petersburg bicycle accidents is that insurance companies have deep pockets and don't want to pay a penny more than they have to in a settlement.

This means that they commonly use a variety of tactics including:

  • Stalling
  • Offering low settlement amounts
  • Refusal to pay
  • Forcing you through red tape
  • Forcing you to sign endless streams of documents

The simple fact is that the other side can bully you around. Our team has a reputation that will get you respect, however. We've spent years standing up for the little guy and making sure that the insurance companies know our clients mean business. And when we're on your side, we're fierce, tireless advocates for you and your rights. We'll fight to get you what you deserve.

If you've been injured in a bike accident of any kind - even a hit and run crash - contact our legal team today for a free consultation. We're here to get you the compensation that you deserve.

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.
