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
- 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.
