Miami Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Thousands of people in the Miami area ride bicycles on a daily basis. Cycling can be a cost-effective and enjoyable way to exercise or commute but it also puts you at a significant risk of serious injury. If you are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, you can be seriously injured and be left with significant economic and noneconomic losses. Thankfully, in many instances, Florida law entitles bicycle accident victims to compensation, so you should be sure to have your case reviewed by an experienced Miami bicycle accident lawyer at The Pendas Law Firm as soon as you can after a crash.

Bicycle Accidents can Cause Serious Injuries

Unlike people in cars or trucks, bicyclists have almost no protection from the world around them. For this reason, bicyclists are often severely injured when they get into accidents. Some of the more common injuries sustained in bicycle accidents include the following:

  • Broken bones;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Lacerations;
  • Concussions;
  • Crush injuries;
  • Sprains and strains;
  • Dislocations;
  • Accidental amputations;
  • Road rash;
  • Nerve injuries.

These and other injuries that you can sustain in a bicycle accident can have devastating consequences. For example, even a mild concussion could require significant medical attention and keep you out of work for weeks or even months. In more serious cases, these injuries can result in long-term disabilities that may prevent you from ever returning to work or even living on your own. Because of these potentially serious outcomes, it is critical that bicycle accident victims speak to an lawyer as soon as possible.

Will You be Able to Recover Compensation for Your Bicycle Accident?

If you have been involved in an accident, you are probably very concerned about whether you will be able to recover compensation. This concern is understandable, as issues like medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life are a serious matter and are likely weighing heavily on your mind. While it is impossible to tell you whether you can recover without conducting a thorough case analysis, the general rule is that bicyclists who are injured by the negligence of others are usually entitled to compensation. Some common examples of negligence that can cause serious bicycle accidents include the following:

  • Speeding;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Poorly maintained roads;
  • Following too closely;
  • Failing to yield the right of way;
  • Improper vehicle maintenance;
  • Defective bicycle manufacture or design;
  • Impaired driving;
  • Running stop signs;
  • Allowing road hazards.

Every case is different, so do not assume that your accident was or was not the result of negligence without speaking to an lawyer.
