Florida Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bilingual Bike Injury Attorneys in Lake Worth, FL Advocate for Injured Bicyclists’ Rights in Broward County, Palm Beach County, and Throughout South Florida

The year-round warm climate of South Florida allows residents to use bicycles for transportation from January through December, providing both a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to motor vehicle transportation. Unfortunately, this also means that bicycle accidents are much more common in our neighborhoods, especially when the sheer number of fast-moving cars on the South Florida roadways and an annual uptick in distracted driving are brought into the mix. A bicycle is no match for a motorized vehicle in terms of size and weight, and regardless of how common cycling is as a form of transportation, many drivers simply do not pay attention to bicyclists sharing the roadway. If you’ve been injured in a biking accident, contact the experienced Florida bicycle accident lawyers at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. for a free consultation about your case.

Frequently Asked Questions About South Florida Bicycle Accidents

I was injured while riding my bicycle without a helmet, and I am over 16. The insurance company says I’m partially to blame for my injuries. Can I still recover compensation?

Under Florida law, not wearing a bicycle helmet cannot be used as evidence of negligence or contributory negligence. Florida Statute 316.2065(18) specifically and clearly states this law, so yes, you still have the right to recover compensation from a negligent party even if you were not wearing a helmet when your bicycle accident occurred.

I was injured in a bicycle accident. What should I do?

First and foremost, you should seek medical attention for your bike accident injuries. This is true even if you were fortunate and did not suffer any injuries that are immediately apparent. Immediate medical attention not only protects your health and well-being, but your medical records immediately following the accident can serve as a basis for recovering compensation for your medical expenses and future medical care that may become necessary. Once you have received proper medical attention, contact an experienced South Florida bicycle accident attorney to discuss your options going forward.
