Fort Lauderdale Bicycle Accident Attorney

Bike Accident with Bloody Knee

In 2010, 83 bicycle riders died in auto accidents in Florida while a total of 618 people suffered fatal bike crashes throughout the United States. During that same year, 52,000 bicycle riders in the U.S. were hurt in accidents. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a bike accident, you know that these numbers are more than just abstract statistics – they reflect people who sustained devastating emotional, physical and financial losses. Unfortunately, many of the tragic bike accidents that occur each year could have been prevented if drivers had been more careful in the way they operated their vehicles. Drivers who were responsible for causing bike accidents need to be held accountable for the harm they have done, and a Fort Lauderdale bicycle accident lawyer at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help those injured victims take legal action and recover compensation for their crash losses.

Top Causes of Fort Lauderdale Bike Collisions

Bike accidents can happen for a lot of reasons, but often occur when drivers make mistakes, break the rules of the road or don’t understand how to safely share the road with bicyclists. Some of the top causes of bike accidents that can occur and lead to injury or death for riders include:

  • Drivers traveling in bike lanes
  • Drivers failing to yield to bike riders as required
  • Drivers who are distracted or drowsy and don’t see bike riders
  • Intoxicated drivers or drivers impaired by drugs
  • Speeding drivers who lose control of their vehicle
  • Drivers who open their doors on bicycle riders

In each of these situations and in many other cases, bike accidents happen as a direct result of the careless or wrongful behavior of motorists driving cars or trucks. These drivers have an obligation to bicycle riders to behave in a reasonably safe way in order to avoid causing injury, and these and other dangerous behaviors are a violation of that legal obligation.
