Bicycle Crashes in Florida
In 2009, 630 bicyclists died in crashes and another 51,000 were injured according to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This means these bicycle deaths accounted for two percent of all traffic fatalities that occurred during 2009. Of those killed, 17 percent were 14 years of age or younger.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bicycle accident, you know firsthand the emotional and financial devastation that can result. Florida law allows you to take action against the person responsible for causing your bicycle accident so that you can be “made whole” by receiving damages or compensation.
