How to Recover Compensation After Being Injured in a Bicycle Accident in Florida

Bike accidents are often more severe than all other auto accidents. If you are someone who has been injured in a bicycle accident, here are some of the questions you may have regarding the possibility of recovering financial compensation:

What are the most common causes of bicycle accidents?

Bicycle accidents are not as uncommon as we’d like to think, and they can be caused by any number of factors. While poor weather, poor road conditions, and faulty car or bike parts do cause accidents, the most common cause of bike accidents is driver negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence include speeding, texting while driving, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

How can I recover compensation after a bicycle accident?

To recover financial compensation, you will first have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. This is not always as straightforward as it seems, so it is generally best to hire an experienced attorney who knows how to win a personal injury claim.

How can an attorney help me win my claim?

Proving a personal injury claim is not always easy, though our attorneys are trained professionals in gathering and presenting evidence. Some of the most useful evidence for proving a claim can include surveillance footage of the incident, pictures of the accident or its aftermath, medical records describing your injuries, police reports of the incident, and witness statements confirming your claim. Any additional evidence that your attorney deems useful will also be incorporated to help you win the compensation you deserve and need.

What is the statute of limitations in Florida for personal injury claims?

The statute of limitations is the amount of time Florida law allows for those injured to file a personal injury claim. In Florida, you have four years from the date of your accident to sue a negligent motorist. Though four years seems like a lot of time, the sooner you file, the better. If you put it off and wait past the four-year mark, you will be denied your right to sue. Do not let this happen. Our firm is ready to begin the claims process as soon as you reach out.
