Fort Lauderdale Bicycle Accident Attorney
South Florida Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Various environmental, lifestyle and economic concerns have spurred countless individuals across Florida and the United States to take up cycling as a hobby and method of transportation. In larger cities, traffic and parking can make driving a vehicle very difficult and frustrating. The bicycle, being a smaller, lighter vehicle that can maneuver on sidewalks and even be taken inside a building, if necessary, is becoming more and more prevalent across the state.
Unfortunately, many car, truck and other vehicle drivers are not respectful or vigilant when it comes to sharing the road with bicycles. A cyclist might expect that they will be treated with the same courtesy and given the same right-of-way that another vehicle would get. Sometimes this isn’t the case, and the results can be catastrophic.
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident because of another person’s negligent, careless, dangerous or reckless behavior, you need to speak with an attorney. You may be able to file a suit against the negligent party in order to recover compensation for your injuries, property damage and non-economic losses.
