Fort Lauderdale Bicycle Accident Lawyer

People choose to ride their bicycles around Fort Lauderdale for various reasons, including exercise or an economical and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation. However, bicyclists in Florida are at a high risk of serious injuries in bicycle accidents, as the state has the highest rate of fatal bicycle accidents of all the 50 states in the U.S. In addition to fatalities, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that approximately 48,000 bicyclists are injured each year nationwide.

Injuries from bicycle accidents can be particularly devastating since bicyclists have no shield from an impact with a car, truck, or even the ground. Their bodies can be completely exposed and vulnerable to traumatic injuries. Even bicyclists who wear helmets do not always escape catastrophic head or brain injuries. The Fort Lauderdale bicycle accident lawyers at The Pendas Law Firm have seen firsthand how significantly bicycle accident injuries can affect a victim’s life. If you have been injured in a bicycle crash, we are here to help you.

Bicycle Injuries Can Change Your Life

Every bicycle accident victim will suffer unique injuries depending on the circumstances of their crash. Some of the more common bicycle accident injuries include the following:

  • Fractures in the face and jaw;
  • Broken limbs;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Paralysis;
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI);
  • Fractured skulls;
  • Crushed or shattered bones;
  • Contusions or lacerations;
  • Neck and back injuries.

Such injuries can require emergency medical care, surgery, hospitalization, medical equipment, physical and rehabilitative therapy, home health assistance, assisted living or recovery facilities, and more. Some bicycle accident injuries can completely change your life, as they result in permanent impairments and disabilities. These disabilities can prevent you from working, participating in activities you enjoyed, or even caring for yourself on a daily basis. Even if your injury does not result in permanent disability, it can still take a significant amount of time to recover and can result in substantial financial losses, as well as pain and suffering.

We Stand Up For Your Rights

If another party caused your bicycle accident because they acted in a negligent manner, you have the right to seek compensation for all of your relevant losses. Proving negligence in a bicycle accident case is not always easy, however, our lawyers have the resources to fully investigate the circumstances of your accident and identify any potentially liable parties. Some examples of negligence in bicycle accidents can include:

  • Distracted driving;
  • Not adequately watching for bicyclists;
  • Not properly yielding;
  • Speeding;
  • Drunk driving;
  • Following a bicycle too closely;
  • Running red light or stop signs;
  • Defective bicycle parts;
  • Allowing road hazards.

If we identify negligence in your case, we will then fight for your right to the financial recovery you deserve.
