In the State of Florida, cyclists have the same rights to the road as other drivers–and just like other drivers, they are expected to follow the same laws of the road. This includes obeying traffic signals and communicating with other drivers. Yet unlike other motorists, cyclists are extremely vulnerable in accidents. Bicycles do not offer the same types of protection that cars and trucks offer their drivers. As such, when a cyclist is involved in a traffic accident with another driver–it is the cyclist who sustains the most significant injuries.
In 2011 alone, more than 677 bicyclists were killed across the United States in a variety of motor vehicle crashes–and an additional 48,000 sustained serious injuries. Some of these injuries include:
When a 3,000-pound automobile collides with a cyclist, the results are often catastrophic. Injuries sustained are usually severe and life threatening. Even once the cyclist does recover, he or she is likely to face long-term effects and complications for the rest of their lives. They may be unable to ride a bike again, unable to work in their chosen profession, or they may experience chronic pain and limited mobility well into the future.
Florida and Miami law enforcement officials often launch safety campaigns that are designed to increase biking awareness. Car drivers often mistakenly feel as if a cyclist shouldn’t be on the road–or should be riding elsewhere. As a result, they may ride too close to cyclists, run them off the road, or cut in front of them at intersections. This negligence is dangerous and cyclists are the ones who pay the ultimate price.
From the moment you are injured in a biking accident, you need an experienced bicycling injuries lawyer on your side. Your injuries will likely be very severe and require months–and even years of rehabilitation and therapy. You may be unable to work and provide for your family during this time, and complications from surgeries and internal damage could jeopardize your life.
Sadly, insurance companies are all too aware of the seriousness of bicycling injuries. As a result, insurance adjusters are often quick to offer a settlement to injured cyclists and their families. This settlement is usually only a fraction of what that injured bicyclist needs to fully recover and does not usually take complications and lost wages into consideration.
Before you accept any insurance settlement, it is imperative that you speak to a Miami bicycling attorney immediately. Your attorney will need to investigate all aspects of your case to establish negligence and build a solid case against the negligent driver.
Unfortunately, the driver’s insurance company will not hand out large sums of money without fighting–and they usually try to pin some (if not all) of the blame on the injured bicyclist. They may claim that you swerved in front of the car driver, lost control of your bike yourself, or disobeyed the laws of the road. In order to counteract these false allegations and out-right lies, your Miami bicycling injuries lawyer may need to employ accident recreation experts and interview eye-witnesses carefully.
Thank you Victor Dante for handling my case and helping me get compensated. I'll be sure to recommend you.
