Bay Harbor Islands Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Injured While Riding a Bike? Call (305) 290-4907.
The pleasant weather in Florida makes it an ideal location for outdoor cyclists. Due to the number of cyclists on the road, Florida is a leading state for cycling injuries. You should seek the advice of a Bay Harbor Islands bicycle accident lawyer at The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, PA to learn about your rights and compensation available for victims of bicycle accidents.
Injuries Sustained in Bicycling Accidents
A driver in a vehicle has safety belts, air bags, and the structure of the vehicle for protection in the event of an accident. A person riding a bicycle has none of these protections. For this reason, cyclists are susceptible to serious injuries when they are hit by a car or truck while riding on the street. A Bay Harbor Islands bicycle accident attorney can protect your rights and fight for compensation for your injuries.
A bike rider is at risk for several common injuries:
- Broken arms and legs
- Collarbone injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Head injuries
Our firm has successfully represented individuals who were severely injured in cycling related accidents. You should always have a Bay Harbor Islands car accident lawyer handle all communications with a third party insurance carrier or PIP insurance carrier to avoid confusions and problems with insurance coverage. At The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, PA, we are well-versed in the Florida No-Fault Statute and personal injury law to help you obtain PIP coverage and financial recovery for your injuries.
Preparing Your Case
We work with accident reconstruction experts, interview witnesses, and carefully prepare every case to help you recover damages for medical expenses, loss of income, and other damages related to your accident. As with motorcycle accidents, if you owned a vehicle or lived with someone who owned a vehicle at the time of the accident, your car insurance company may provide PIP coverage of up to $10,000 for your treatment and lost wages.
