Bicycle Accidents in Florida
The number of bicycle accidents in Florida is among the highest in the country. When compared to other states, we have the greatest average yearly number of bicycle fatalities and the highest rate of cyclist fatalities per million population. Bicycle accidents may be fatal or significantly impact someone’s life when people disrespect their responsibilities to cyclists.
Although it is less expensive and, for many people, more enjoyable to bike than to drive, there is no denying that biking in Florida is riskier than driving. Because they completely surround their occupants, cars, pickup trucks, buses, and other motor vehicles, are safer modes of transportation. On the other hand, cyclists could just have a helmet to provide some level of protection.
An accident on a bicycle might result in a protracted, painful recovery, high medical costs, missed pay, and other consequences. Fortunately, if another person caused your crash, you might be able to sue them for reimbursement for your damages. But this procedure is frequently fairly challenging, particularly when trying to deal with numerous other chores and recuperate from injuries.
