Tampa Bicycle Accident Lawyer

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that an estimated 48,000 bicyclists suffered injuries in accidents in a single year in the U.S. In addition, Florida has the highest rate of fatal bicycle injuries per population of any state in the country. These statistics should make everyone aware of the importance of safety and precaution when you head out to ride your bicycle. However, a bicyclist can be as careful as possible and can still suddenly be involved in an accident when they least expect it.

When a bicycle accident occurs, the resulting injuries can change your life. You may need months to recover and may miss a substantial amount of work and amass overwhelming medical bills. In some situations, your injuries may cause permanent impairments and disabilities that prevent you from ever returning to work or your everyday activities. The good news in this situation is that you likely have legal rights to seek financial recovery for your injuries and losses. The Tampa bicycle accident lawyers at The Pendas Law Firm can review your case and advise you of your options for recovery.

The Effects of a Bicycle Accident on Your Life

Bicycle accidents often result in severe or even catastrophic injuries including spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, shattered bones, or burns, among many others. No matter what type of injury you sustained, you will likely incur losses during your recovery. Some of the most common losses in a bicycle accident case can include the following:

  • Medical bills – Many injuries require various types of treatment from emergency trauma care to rehabilitative therapy. Medical bills from extensive treatment can easily reach into the tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, you may require ongoing care for your injuries for the indefinite future. It is important to calculate your estimated future medical costs, as well.
  • Lost wages – Many injuries require a rest period for recovery, during which you will likely be unable to go to work. During this time, you can lose thousands of dollars in missed income and other benefits that come along with your job. If you miss too much work, your job may be in jeopardy and, if you suffer a disabling injury, you may lose your ability to earn a living for the rest of your life.
  • Intangible losses – In addition to the financial effects of a bicycle accident injury, you can experience significant intangible effects. These can include the physical pain and suffering that you feel due to your injuries, the emotional trauma you experience, loss of enjoyment of life if you cannot participate in your regular activities, and the struggle with permanent disabilities.

Anyone who has suffered the above losses in a bicycle accident has the right to hold any party that caused their accident liable for all of their losses.
