How We Can Assist You with Your Bicycle Accident

Complimentary Consultation

It is normal to have questions following a bicycle accident. You may wonder how you will keep up with household bills while you recover from your injury. It can also be confusing to determine who was at fault for the accident and who should cover the costs. A complimentary consultation gives us the opportunity to get to know you and your case. It is an important step for us to help determine your next best legal steps.

Establishing Fault

It is not always clear who is at fault for a bicycle accident. Cyclists must follow the same rules of the road as drivers.

But traffic law violations are far from the only causes of bicycle accidents. Road conditions, poor road maintenance, and other factors may also be to blame. We can help you collect evidence to prove how the accident happened and who is at fault. Some evidence we may collect includes:

If necessary, we will also call on local experts to recreate the scene of the accident, further helping to establish fault and liability.

Getting You the Compensation You Deserve

Cycling accidents often lead to expensive medical bills, long recovery times, and lost wages. It is important for responsible parties to cover these costs. We will assist you in recovering these costs:

Seeking Compensation for Injuries From a Bike Accident

If a driver caused the bicycle accident, you can pursue civil action against the negligent driver. You can file a third-party liability claim against the negligent driver, and you may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver. Injured bicyclists may also be able to collect compensation under their personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.

Working with a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with both the no-fault and bicycle accident laws in Florida can help you get the compensation you deserve.
