Who is responsible for Bicycle Crashes in Florida?

In certain cases, this means that the bicycle accident is the fault of a driver of a vehicle who crashes into the bike. In other situations, the biker himself may be to blame or the city that designed and maintained the roadways may have been responsible for the crash.

Whenever someone else is responsible for causing or contributing to the bicycle accident, it is important to get legal help. You may be able to sue the driver responsible for causing the accident if you can prove he/she was negligent in some way that led to the crash and resulting harm. You may even be able to hold the government responsible for the poor road conditions, provided you meet the criteria for suing despite governmental immunity protections. The experienced Lakewood Ranch personal injury lawyers at Luhrsen Goldberg can assist you in determining if there is anyone to hold responsible and, if so, can work with you to build a case.

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. In order to get compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses, it is important to understand your legal rights. The knowledgeable Florida personal injury attorneys at Luhrsen Goldberg can help. Contact us today using our online form or at 941.212.2600 to learn more about how we can help you to make your personal injury claim based on bicycle accidents.
