Bicycle Accident Lawyers


As bicycles increasingly become a more popular mode of transportation in Florida, it is important for riders to understand their legal rights and responsibilities when sharing the roadway.

Bicycles provide considerably less protection when compared to other vehicles, especially large commercial trucks, so even the best precautions may fail to mitigate the risks for personal injury.

Florida’s Bicycle Laws

For the past few years, Florida has unfortunately become a leading state in the number of bicycle accident fatalities. And while protective gear, helmets, and other safety measures can ultimately prevent severe and debilitating injuries from occurring, negligence remains a critical factor.

Under Florida law, bicycles are considered a vehicle that must adhere to state and local traffic safety laws, which includes right of way, stopping at stop signs, and obeying traffic lights. As Florida’s no-fault insurance law requires accident victims to pursue an injury claim with their respective insurance company, certain provisions must be met for a bicycle rider who has sustained personal injury.

If an injured bicycle rider does not maintain an auto insurance policy, an experienced attorney can help you pursue other options, such as utilizing other forms of insurance to protect you in the event of an accident; however, when a bicycle rider uses the sidewalk as traveling lane, bicycle riders are considered pedestrians and must obey the safety standards associated with using a sidewalk.

For example, bicycle riders are required to alert pedestrians when passing from behind or yield the right of way.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim For A Bicycle Accident

Bicycle accident victims can suffer from a broad range of injuries, including, but not limited to, abrasions, broken bones, bruising, joint pain, head injuries, and even wrongful death. With the benefit of a Shiner Law Group attorney, you can secure the pecuniary compensation to avoid severe financial hardship.

If you or your loved one has been injured in a Florida bike accident, it is important to call emergency services to report the accident and receive medical attention, as these critical steps can protect you and bolster your claim in a complex legal proceeding.

Insurance agents, however, may seek to take advantage of the situation by requesting a written or oral statement in regard to the accident. Bicycle accident victims are not legally required to provide such information, and statements should only be given after first consulting with legal counsel.

Your Shiner Law Group personal injury attorney can help you quantify your damages and secure relief for past and future medical expenses, lost earning potential, and other economic losses and non-economic losses.

5 / 5 stars
I can't say enough about not only the attorneys handling the case, I'd like to include the staff. Too often, it seems people get lost in the shuffle when dealing with unpleasant issues, such as a motor vehicle accident. I was hit by a vehicle without insurance, and thought all was lost. In addition to getting my medical bills negotiated down to a level that were able to be paid by my small policy, they did so with an amount of recovery I didn't expect. All the while, everyone involved were very attentive and most important.....very nice. That goes a long way in what otherwise is a very stressful event. I can't imagine I'd send a referral to anyone else.
