BICYCLE ACCIDENT – FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI
It is a known fact that bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles are usually deadly. Every year, thousands of people all over the country are fatally injured in bicycle accidents. The (NHTSA) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that approximately 2% of all traffic related fatalities involve bicyclists. In Florida alone, there were multiple such accidents this past year. Which means, if you are reading this now, there is a good chance you also have been injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle accident.
Depending on the severity of the bicycle accident and the amount of negligence at work, you may be suffering from one or more of the following injuries:
- Compound & Simple Fractures
- Loss of Senses & Amputations
- Lacerations & Deep Abrasions
- Brain Damage
- Neck Injury & Spine
- Wrongful Death
While this list is not comprehensive it does go over some of the more common damages generally associated with a serious biking accident. Along with these types of injuries come expenses. Medical & rehabilitative services fees can potentially cost a bike accident victim thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars while undergoing treatment for recovery. If you, or a loved one, are currently experiencing these types of expenses after a bike accident, I encourage you to consider your legal rights & options. You may be able to pursue a significant sized compensation from the negligent party.
While legal action may not be able to undo what has already been done to you, or make the situation that occurred any less difficult, it may help you get through both the immediate and long term financial issues you may be facing. Bicycle accidents can be pricey, due to the intensity of the injuries sustained in the accident. A seasoned personal injury attorney, such as myself, can help you and your family overcome these large expenses and put you back on the road to physical and financial recovery.
