Bike Accidents

Lakeland Bike Accident Attorneys | Auburndale Personal Injury Lawyer

Riding a bicycle in Florida should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Unfortunately, other drivers often don’t give enough respect to bicycle riders, but bicyclists share equal rights to those who drive a car, truck, or motorcycle on Florida roadways. Specifically, riders of bicycles are required to obey the same rules as other vehicles on the road.  Often there is a bicycle lane explicitly delineated for bicycle riders. Through the negligence, inattentiveness or willfulness of other motor vehicle drivers, injuries occur which require the assistance of our lawyers. These bicycle accidents can occur when a motor-vehicle driver fails to:

  • adequately stop at a posted stop sign
  • obey speed limits on a blind curve, or
  • while pulling in or out of a driveway or parking spot. 

A bicycle may also be rear-ended if a car is following too closely behind a bicyclist.  If this occurs, a bicycle accident could occur where the bicycle rider is "sandwiched" between two cars resulting in serious injuries, such as a broken leg, amputation, or death.  When these bicycle injuries result, contact us to discuss your bicycle collision.

For those bicyclists who are involved in even a minor bicycle accident will often suffer far greater injury than anyone who was in a car or other motor vehicle.  Cyclists in Florida who wear protective gear, such as helmets, will always have some injuries, even if it's only road rash.  For those who were hit by a car at low speeds, there is generally only damage done to the aesthetics of their car, while for bicyclists, they are generally thrown from the bicycle and generally suffer serious injuries including broken bones, road-rash, lacerations, brain injury, severe bleeding or even death.  Our attorneys are experienced with seeking compensation for riders who are involved in bicycle accidents.
