Fort Myers Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycling is an excellent way to exercise, enjoy the beautiful weather in Fort Myers, and to get around town while saving on gas and parking. However, just like any mode of transportation, bicycling comes with the risks of collisions and injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 48,000 bicyclists reported injuries from traffic accident in one year in the United States.

If you are one of the many bicyclists who is injured in an accident caused by another party, you should always discuss your rights and legal options with a skilled Fort Myers bicycle injury lawyer as soon as possible. At The Pendas Law Firm, we will evaluate your situation and effectively represent you in any legal case regarding your injuries.

Common Injuries to Bicyclists

The injuries resulting from bicycle accidents can vary significantly from one accident to the next. Some bicyclists may be able to walk away with scratches or bruises while others may need to be transported in an ambulance for emergency trauma care. It is always a wise idea to seek a medical evaluation after an accident as symptoms of some injuries may not be readily apparent. In addition, if you want to later bring a claim against another party, a timely diagnosis of your injuries is critical.

Some of the most common injuries caused by bicycle accidents include:

  • Head trauma;
  • Skull fractures;
  • Traumatic brain injury;
  • Neck and back injuries;
  • Spinal cord injury;
  • Paralysis;
  • Broken limbs, ribs, or pelvis;
  • Serious contusions or lacerations;
  • Damage to internal organs;
  • Internal bleeding.

While some injured cyclists can recover from their injuries in a relatively short period of time and with minimal treatment, others may be left with permanent disabilities and may require medical care for the rest of their lives.

Helping Your Recover Financially

No matter what type of injury you suffered, the party that caused your bicycle accident should be held liable if you incurred any losses. Negligent acts that lead to collisions and liability can include:

  • Drunk driving;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Violating the rules of the road;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Violating traffic signals;
  • Aggressive driving;
  • Dangerous passing;
  • Road hazards.

If any act of negligence caused your accident, our lawyers can help you with an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, permanent disability, and more. The legal process can be complex, so you need an lawyer on your side with specific experience handling this type of case.
