Jacksonville Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Thousands of people get on their bicycles to exercise or travel around Jacksonville each and every day. Bicycling is a popular activity and for good reason – it helps keep you fit and can save a substantial amount of money on fuel. Unfortunately, nearly 50,000 people get injured in traffic-related accidents while riding their bikes on an annual basis, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In addition, Florida bicyclists may be at a greater risk of injuries, as our state leads the U.S. in the rate of bicycle accident fatalities.

If you have been in a bicycle accident, you know how terrifying the experience can be. Bicyclists have little to no protection from heavy moving vehicles and crashes are often devastating. Even a helmet will not always protect a bicyclist from life-changing head or brain injuries in the event of a collision. When bicycle accident victims often experience losses, they have the right to seek compensation from the party that acted negligently and caused their accident, contact our experienced Jacksonville bicycle accident lawyers. At The Pendas Law Firm in Jacksonville, we help bicycle accident victims receive the recovery they deserve.

Bicycle Accident Injuries Can Be Serious

Because bicyclists do not have seat belts, airbags, or any other protective tools, their bodies are completely exposed when they get hit by a car or caused to crash. For this reason, bicyclists commonly sustain serious impact injuries, usually from the vehicle, the ground, or both. Such a traumatic impact can cause injuries to multiple parts of the body and common injuries include the following:

  • Broken bones;
  • Facial or jaw fractures;
  • Skull fractures;
  • Spinal cord damage;
  • Traumatic brain injury;
  • Organ damage;
  • Deep contusions;
  • Friction burns;
  • Lacerations;
  • Broken ribs or pelvis.

Who Was Responsible For Your Accident?

In order to hold another party liable for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses, you must prove they acted negligently in causing your accident. This means that they did not use the proper care when they were driving or engaging in other activities. Examples of negligent acts of the people responsible for bicycle accident include:

  • Allowing road hazards;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Driving while intoxicated;
  • Failure to yield;
  • Passing bicyclists too close;
  • Following too close;
  • Speeding;
  • Running stop signs or traffic signals.

Drivers are expected to share the road with bicyclists and, when they do not properly do so, they can be held liable for any accidents and injuries that occur.
