Proving Fault in a Bicycle Accident Case
Bicyclists have the same legal rights as other drivers when traveling on roads in Florida. Unfortunately, drivers who are distracted, drunk driving, or other negligent acts cause accidents that can cause the bicyclist to suffer severe injuries.
Statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles report more than 5,000 bike accidents each year, with most of these bicyclists suffering injuries. You may be able to recover compensation for your injuries if you can prove liability.
In order to prove negligence, we must show:
- That the driver had a duty to exercise care
- That the duty of care was breached
- The breach of duty is the cause of your injuries
People on bicycles have the same duties as automobile drivers. If the person on the bicycle is found to be partially responsible for the accident, it is still possible to recover compensation. However, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage that you are determined to be at fault. Our team can explain contributory negligence law and how it may apply to your situation.
Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
Often, the driver’s insurance company or their attorney will contact an injured cyclist with a settlement offer. Make sure your rights are protected by contacting a qualified injury attorney before speaking with the insurance company or accepting any offer. Our Miami bicycle accident attorney aggressively negotiates with insurance companies on behalf of our clients to secure a fair settlement that will cover your damages.
