Bicycle Accident Attorney Melbourne Fl
Hundreds of bicyclists suffer serious injury or death each year after being hit by vehicles. Collisions involving a bicycle can result in very serious injuries. When bicycle riders are on the road, they must take precautions around other cars. Drivers, however, must take even more precautions. Unlike the drivers or passengers in the vehicle, bicycle riders are not protected by anything. When struck by a vehicle, severe, debilitating injuries – or even fatalities – often occur.
At Injured Brevard, we offer caring and supportive representation to individuals and families who are affected by bicycle accidents. Our team of experienced attorneys and staff bring the necessary resources, compassion and dedication to meet our clients’ needs during this difficult time. Contact our law firm in Melbourne, Florida, to schedule a free consultation. There are never any costs or fees unless we make a recovery for you.
The extreme vulnerability of bike riders can result in serious injuries ranging from broken bones to spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries. In addition to fear and anxiety stemming from the sudden injury, our clients come to us with mounting medical bills, strain from lost wages, and other financial stress associated with the accident. The Injured Brevard team can help relieve the financial and emotional strains that these accidents place on the victims and their families.
In cases involving bicycle accidents, it is extremely important to determine the cause of the accident and prove liability on the at-fault driver. We use expert investigators and accident reconstructionists who have experience examining accident scenes and proving the case. We use their experience and skill to determine driver negligence, such as:
- Turning in front of a bicyclist without signaling
- Hitting bicyclists in an intersection
- Failing to stop at a stop sign or red light
- Swerving onto the shoulder or bike lane
- Hit and Run Bicycle Accidents
When bicyclists are hit by cars or trucks, they are often faced with the burden of how they will be compensated for medical expenses or lost wages. While the driver of the vehicle is more than likely responsible for the accident, the driver’s insurance coverage may not be easily determined, especially in hit and run accidents. Our knowledge and experience in cases involving bicycle accidents allows us to answer our clients’ questions and calm their fears.
