There are not many things more relaxing than jumping on your bike at the end of a long day and just unwinding, letting the breeze blow by as you pedal away. When you get on your bicycle, the last thing you probably think about is getting injured, but unfortunately, accidents do happen. Whether a bicyclist gets side swiped by a car or worse, directly hit, the injuries can be devastating.
If you’ve been in an accident while riding your bike, you may need a Hallandale Beach bicycle accident attorney. At the Dante Law Firm, we understand the impact of a bike accident and will help you navigate the insurance and liability issues you may encounter.
There are many reasons people use their bicycles. Like we mentioned, maybe you use it for leisure, but some people rely on their bike as their sole method of transportation. Often, a bike is the quicker method of transportation, especially in urban areas. Why fight the traffic or waste the fuel? Also, for the environmentally conscious, there is no pollution. For others, a bicycle is their work, from delivery drivers to couriers.
With all those bikes on the road, it is important to note that the CDC says that bicyclists face a higher risk of crash related injury and death than those who use cars. They point out that in 2015, the most recent data available, over 1,000 bicyclists died and there were almost half a million bicyclist injuries.
When we venture out on a bicycle we try to be careful, but when accidents happen, they can result in serious injury. Bicyclists don’t have a vehicle surrounding them for protection. Any impact with the ground or another vehicle is going to hurt. Unfortunately, people in motor vehicles aren’t always paying attention to bicyclists, and that can lead them to become careless. It doesn’t take a fast-moving vehicle to cause an injury to someone on a bike. Often, it is a simple tap or a side swipe. While this may not seem major, for a bicyclist, it is.
If you are injured during a bicycle accident, your ability to work can be in jeopardy. Medical bills can pile up, and worse, if a driver flees the scene or is uninsured, you may not get the coverage you deserve from insurance companies.
If you’ve been in a bicycle accident, the first thing you need to do is ensure you are taken care of medically. If you have been injured, make sure you get medical attention and file a police report for documentation.
After that, you may need a Hallandale Beach bicycle accident attorney. Once a determination has been made as to who was at fault for the accident, insurance companies will attempt to have a quick resolution and this likely won’t benefit you.
