Bicycle Accidents

image002Because of the beautiful weather, it comes as no surprise that Florida is a popular location for outdoor cyclists. With more cyclists on the road, Florida is one of the leading states in cycling related injuries. Typical injures in a cycling accident are collarbone injuries, broken arms, back and spine injuries, concussions, head injuries, death, and paralysis. The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, P.A. have successfully represented individuals who were severely injured in cycling related injuries. We work with accident reconstruction experts, interview witnesses, and help you recover damages for your medical expenses, loss of income, and other related damages. Similar to a vehicular accident, if you owned a vehicle at the time of the incident, or lived with someone who owned a vehicle, your car insurance company may provide PIP (No-Fault) coverage of up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for your treatment and lost wages. It is important to have an attorney handle all communications with the PIP insurance carrier and third party insurance carrier at all times to avoid any confusion and problems with insurance coverage. The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, P.A. is well versed in the Florida No-Fault Statute and can help you obtain PIP insurance coverage for your bicycle accident and obtain ultimate financial recovery for your injures.
