Bicycle Accidents

Get the Damages You Deserve After a Bike Accident

Florida is a no-fault insurance state where policy holders turn to their own insurer for coverage if they should be in a motor vehicle accident. If you are unsure what no-fault insurance means for bicycle accident cases, you can read our earlier article on the topic.  In short, this means that the damages paid for by insurance companies may include medical care, lost wages, and replacement services. Being a no-fault state, Florida may limit motor vehicle accident victims to take legal action against the at-fault driver.

However if the damages from a wreck are permanent or long term, a victim may pursue a lawsuit against an at-fault driver. Some of the injuries that can be included in these suits are:

  • Significant scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of a bodily function

Serious injury and death are often the result of bike/car collision, because cyclists are fully exposed without the protection a motor vehicle provides. If you or someone you know was involved in a bicycle accident with a motor vehicle, it’s important to discuss the cause of the accident with an experienced accident attorney.

The South Florida Injury Lawyers of Chalik & Chalik will travel to any location necessary to meet with you to hear your case.  Covering locations in and around South Florida – Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, and more. Call 855-529-0269 today!

Surviving family members also have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit if a loved one dies as a result of the accident. This is one of the worst possible outcomes of a bicycle crash, and it deserves the most significant amount of compensation in return.

Some of the most common causes of South Florida bicycle accidents range from distracted drivers to drivers simply not obeying the traffic laws. When a bicycle accident occurs it is very important to gather the evidence and preserve it to determine who is at fault. Contact a South Florida accident lawyer to protect the evidence, determine fault and make sure you get the compensation you need to recover. Don’t speak to anyone from an insurance company, they are motivated to settle the case immediately and with as little financial loss as possible. They don’t have your best interest in mind.
