Put Experience On Your Side After A Bicycle Accident
Cycling has become more popular over the last several years, but it can be a dangerous activity, especially in Florida. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in Florida in 2018, there were 6,568 bicycle accidents, 148 of them fatal.
Bicyclists face risks from traffic and unsafe roads. In addition, many drivers do not respect the rights of bicyclists to share the road, which can lead to severe injuries or death. If another party’s negligence caused your accident, you can hold them accountable and seek compensation with an attorney’s help. At Jared Newman, Esq., I represent bike accident victims and their families throughout South Florida. With over 10 years of experience, I have the knowledge and skill to protect your rights in these cases. If we work together, I will be your lawyer from your first phone call to the conclusion of your case. Let’s talk today. Your consultation is free.
Injuries From A Bike Accident Can Be Life-Changing
It is not surprising that a collision between a bike and a car or truck often results in catastrophic or fatal injuries to the cyclist, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Injuries to arms and legs
- Scarring from lacerations or road rash
- Broken or crushed bones
- Damage to internal organs
These types of injuries may require extensive medical treatment and in some cases, long-term care from a full-time caregiver. The injured person may not be able to work or do daily activities, which can drastically change the family dynamic.
If an injury or wrongful death from a bike accident changed the lives of you or your family members, you can seek financial compensation to cover the costs and losses you suffered. I know how to calculate the amount you will need today and in the future.
Motorists Can Make Cycling A Dangerous Activity
Did a motorist or other negligent party cause your accident? There are numerous bike accident causes such as:
- A car making a turn into a bike
- Driving too close to bikes and clipping them
- Drivers who stray into the bike lane
- “Dooring,” when a driver opens a car door and hits a cyclist
- Unsafe roads without bike lanes
With my experience, I can determine the cause of your injuries and work to hold the negligent party liable for your losses.
