Injuries Caused By Bicycle Accidents
Thankfully, bicyclists may take extra steps to protect themselves from injury in case of a bicycle accident. These steps include, but are not limited to: wearing helmets, protective padding, bright clothing and reflective materials.
Despite these precautions, surrounding motorists are still a critical factor in keeping bicyclists safe. By respecting the rules of the road and treating a bicyclist as if they were another automobile on the road, bicycle accidents become entirely preventable.
Unfortunately, negligence, recklessness, or a disregard for the wellbeing of others is all too common on today’s roads, which can result in severe injuries to bicyclists.
Injuries suffered by bicyclists during a car crash can include:
- Broken Bones
- Permanent Disfigurement
- Brain Damage
- Spinal Cord Injury
If a high-speed crash occurs, the bicycle accident could turn fatal. In cases of wrongful death, next of kin of the decedent can file a lawsuit in pursuit of recovering certain damages allowable under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act.
These damages can include funeral expenses, loss of support and services, loss of companionship and mental pain and suffering.
If you were obeying the rules of the road when a negligent motorist hit you on your bicycle, why should you be the one who has to pay for your recovery?
By presenting a claim for your injuries or using a civil lawsuit to seek damages, you can hold the person who caused your bicycle accident responsible for your injuries.
Types of compensation you can receive:
- Initial medical costs
- Ongoing rehabilitative therapy
- Bicycle repair or replacement
- Lost or reduced wages
- Pain and suffering
