Recovering Compensation After a Florida Bicycle Accident

In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that Florida has the highest rate of bicycle fatalities in the nation – in fact, more than double the nationwide rate of .23 deaths per 100,000 people. Many of these types of car accidents are due to preventable causes, including driver error, unsafe intersections, and poorly maintained roads.

Protecting Your Rights After a Bicycle Accident

It is important that you know how to protect your rights after a bicycle accident, especially if you have been seriously injured. You may be able to seek compensation for the damages you have sustained by filing a personal injury claim. In order to maximize your chance of success, there are certain steps you must take in order to strengthen your claim.

Here are the steps you should take after a bicycle accident:

  • Report the accident to the police and obtain a copy of the police report
  • Avoid making any statements to the person who caused the accident and their insurance company
  • Take the name and contact information of the other person involved and any witnesses
  • Take photos of any visible injuries or property damage
  • Seek medical attention and keep documentation of your treatment
  • Consult with a personal injury attorney ASAP
  • When feasible, don’t repair or alter the bicycle until it can be inspected by your attorney’s forensic team

The longer you wait to speak with a lawyer, the more you risk losing your right to legal action due to the statute of limitations. With the vast expense that comes with treating a serious injury, you should not delay in seeking the financial compensation you need to put your accident behind you. Kelley/Uustal is prepared to help you seek justice – call us today to learn more about how our Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys can help.
