Bicycle Accidents

In Florida, cycling is a common mode of transportation year-round. While motorized vehicles are legally required to share the road with bicycles, it’s easy to understand how accidents between the two occur. Persons injured in bicycle accidents may be entitled to compensation. Not surprisingly, Florida is considered to be the most dangerous state for bicycle riders according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistics. The most common causes of bicycle accidents occur due to motorists and cyclists not sharing the road.

Common Accidents Include:

• A motorist makes a right turn across the cyclist’s lane
• Motorist turns left at a non-dedicated left-turn intersection
• Either the cyclist or motorist fails to stop
• A vehicle or cyclist passed the other on the right

Other accidents occur due to distracted drivers, speeding, driving under the influence or tailgating. Any of these accidents could result in head trauma, lacerations, broken bones or internal injuries, road rash, or dental injuries.

When accidents occur, you need a knowledgeable lawyer to determine who was at fault; whether the driver was negligent or reckless, or if the cyclist shared in the responsibility. There are specific rules of the road for cyclists under Florida law. Even if you contributed to the accident that caused your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation from the driver.
