Bike Accidents

Serving South Florida Bicycle Accident Victims

Bicycles are becoming an increasingly popular mode of transportation, and many local areas are increasing bike lanes and trying to improve safety for bicycle riders. Unfortunately, many motorists still do not know how to share the road with bike riders, and drivers who make mistakes or who are careless could cause a bicyclist to sustain life-altering injuries.

When a driver causes a bicycle accident and serious injuries or death result from the crash, the motorist who was responsible needs to compensate the victim. The victim, however, has the burden of taking legal action and pursuing a damage claim. This can be challenging, especially when you are coping with serious injuries or if your loved one has been killed in a bike accident and you are dealing with grief. The best way to protect your rights after a bicycle accident in Florida is to get help from an experienced bicycle accident attorney. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our lawyers have been helping injured victims and family members of those killed in bike accidents since 1997. Our attorneys are here and ready to help you to pursue a bike accident claim.

WHEN CAN YOU PURSUE A CLAIM FOR A FLORIDA BICYCLE ACCIDENT?

Bicyclists and those whose loved ones are killed in a bike accident can take legal action against a driver whenever the driver was wholly or partially responsible for causing the accident. In order to make a bicycle accident claim, the injured victim will need to prove that:

  • The driver did something negligent, careless or in violation of driving rules. Drivers have an obligation to be reasonably safe and when a motorist falls short of living up to that obligation; this can be considered a breach of legal duty.
  • The breach of legal duty was the direct cause of a bicycle accident. You must show that the driver’s behavior directly led to the bike crash.
  • You sustained actual harm as a result of the bicycle accident. In other words, you’ll need to demonstrate that you sustained financial or physical loss or that you suffered harm because of the death of a loved one.

Drivers make many types of bad decisions and careless mistakes that lead to bicycle accidents, such as driving while intoxicated or drowsy; driving while distracted; speeding or failing to yield. These and other dangerous behaviors are all examples of situations where a bicycle accident attorney could help victims to pursue a claim for compensation.
