Bicycle Accident Attorney - You Deserve A Compassionate Florida Lawyer
South Florida bicycle accident attorney Jeffrey DeCarlo knows that cycling is a popular mode of transportation in Miami-Dade County and across South Florida, particularly with the high cost of gas, difficulty finding parking spaces, and congested street traffic. Unfortunately, bicyclists, like pedestrians or motorcyclists, can be severely injured if struck by a car or injured in a truck accident. Even wearing a helmet, a cyclist might sustain bicycle accident injuries that are severe or even fatal.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A., we understand that bicycle accidents are all too common in Florida. That's not acceptable. If a negligent driver of a car or truck, or a defective bike part, was a contributing factor in your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Contact Florida contingency fee attorney Jeffrey D. DeCarlo today. We'll discuss your legal options free of charge.
Common injuries that may give rise to a bicycle accident lawsuit
Because of the unprotected nature of a bicycle, even riders who follow safety precautions and wear protective helmets are at risk of suffering potentially fatal injuries. When involved in a car accident, bicyclists are at high risk to be thrown from their bicycles, resulting in traumatic injuries that often require surgery. Common bicycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
How bicycle accidents in South Florida can happen
Serious bicycle accidents can occur after drivers fail to see a bicyclist or fail to observe the right of the way. In some accidents, drivers simply fail to look and sideswipe the bicycle rider when changing lanes or turning onto another road. Other common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Texting while driving
