Coral Gables Bicycle Accident Attorney
Florida wants to be seen as one of the friendliest states in the nation when it comes to cyclists. However, officials’ efforts don’t change the fact that Florida is the deadliest state in America for bicycle riders. Riding for pleasure and to commute has become increasingly popular in recent years, and Florida has made attempts to step up to the plate. Dedicated bike lanes have been making travel marginally safer for riders but, as we have all seen in the news, no one is 100% protected.
Where to Turn After a Bicycle Accident
When you’re struck by a vehicle while riding, you stand to suffer serious and catastrophic injury due to the size and weight of motor vehicles compared to a bicycle. You are legally permitted to pursue compensation for any financial losses you have suffered as a result of the accident. Your options include filing under your personal injury protection insurance (PIP) if available, or filing under an at-fault driver’s third-party liability insurance, presuming you have a serious injury. As Coral Gables bicycle accident attorneys, we understand that this is a stressful time. You aren’t sure what steps to take, and it feels as though you are getting nothing accomplished. Steinger, Greene & Feiner is here to protect your rights. Let us help you take action against the negligent party and fight for the money you deserve. Call us today at (786) 220-2990 or contact us online, and you can schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced bicycle accident lawyers in Coral Gables.
Your Legal Rights Following a Bike Accident
Because Florida is a no-fault state, many people believe that they are simply out of luck when it comes to pursuing compensation for injuries sustained in a bicycle accident. If you are seriously injured and suffer financial damage, you need to know that you are legally permitted to take action against the at-fault (or negligent) party. Someone has to pay for your losses, and it isn’t necessarily you! When you take your case to court, you will need to prove that the driver of the vehicle was to blame for the wreck. You will also have to show the jury that your injuries were serious. The standard of proof is “most likely”. In other words, the jury will listen to the facts and determine if your version is most likely true. If the jury believes that it is and that your damages are justified, you will be compensated. The good news is that many bicycle accident victims never have to see the inside of a courtroom. That is because we have the expertise and knowledge it takes to negotiate with the driver’s insurance company and get the settlement you deserve. If you and your attorney determine that accepting the settlement is in your best interest, you give up your right to pursue a claim in court. What is a fair settlement? One that covers your costs and losses incurred because of the accident.
