The bicycle accident attorneys at Rue & Ziffra have significant experience representing residents of Volusia and Flagler counties, as well as people visiting Daytona Beach, Deland, and other Central Florida cities, in personal injury claims involving bicycle accident injuries. As a bike rider, no matter how serious or casual, you know you are vulnerable to the vehicles, elements, and terrain around you. But that doesn’t make being struck by a careless driver or crashing because of a road obstruction any less traumatic. Our bicycle accident attorneys know how hazardous it can be for cyclists in Florida, and we know how seriously you may be hurt—physically and emotionally. If you have been injured on your own bike or a rental bike in Florida, you can trust we also know how to win fair compensation on your behalf.
After Sustaining a Bike Accident Injury, It Is Important to Have an Experienced Bicycle Accident Attorney by Your Side to Assert & Protect Your Rights.
Bicycling is a common leisure activity that many people in East-Central Florida enjoy. Residents ride around their neighborhoods, and visitors cruise the coastline, but bike riding can turn dangerous due to numerous factors and in many different scenarios, such as:
- Distracted Driving, Cell Phone Use & Texting
- Failure to Yield to Bicyclists
- Motorists Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
- Aggressive Driving
- Improper Turning
- Failure to Keep a Proper Lookout for Bicyclists
- Parked Drivers Opening Car Doors in a Bike Lane
- Poorly Maintained Roads & Intersections
- Inadequate Signage & Traffic Signals
- Bicycle Design & Manufacturing Defects
- Helmet Design & Manufacturing Defects
- Negligent Bicycle Repair & Maintenance
- Obstructions on Bike Paths, Roads & Road Shoulders
If you rented a bike to ride in Florida, you may have been asked to sign a waiver, releasing the rental company from liability in the event you sustain an injury. However, even if you did sign a waiver, you may still be able to recover compensation after a bicycle accident. It all depends on the facts of your case and the factors that caused or contributed to your bike-related injury. Research to learn more about bicycle injuries and waivers of liability, or simply call us and discuss the circumstances of your case with one of our experienced Florida bike accident lawyers.
Bicycle Accident Injuries Can Be Very Serious & Extensive. Our Bike Accident Lawyers Can Help Obtain Compensation to Cover Medical Expenses, Lost Wages & Diminished Quality of Life.
The injuries resulting from a bicycle accident can range from cuts, scrapes, and bruises to broken bones to lifelong physical impairments arising from spinal injuries and brain injuries. But, like many injuries sustained in sudden accidents, not all bike accident injuries are immediately apparent. For example, bike accidents often cause blunt abdominal trauma, damaging organs such as the spleen, liver, or kidneys. Therefore, it’s important to seek medical treatment after being hit on a bike or involved in any type of bike crash. If you don’t know the full extent of your injuries, it’s much more difficult to make a full recovery—and to recover fair compensation for the damages you have sustained. That deserved compensation is what we’re here to obtain for you.
