Miami Bicycle Accident Attorney
Miami Bicycle Accident Victims Can Make Injury Claims
No-fault accident rules apply to auto crashes in Florida, but bicycle riders who are seriously hurt in a crash can still take legal action to recover monetary damages from the driver who caused the bike wreck. When a bicycle accident is a fatal one and the bicyclist dies, the family members of the deceased victim also have the legal right to pursue a wrongful death claim.
Bike accident cases can go to court, where the bicyclist or surviving family members will need to prove that the driver was to blame and will need to demonstrate the severity of injuries. When bike accident cases go to court, a judge or jury will evaluate whether the plaintiff’s version of events is most likely true. If so, then the plaintiff will be awarded monetary damages.
Many bike accident claims, however, don’t get all the way to a jury. Instead, the case is resolved outside of court when your Miami bicycle accident lawyer negotiates a settlement with the insurance company. A settlement is a payment in exchange for which you give up the right to sue. Both a settlement and damages awarded by a jury should “make you whole” after a bike accident, which means all of your costs and losses should be covered.
