If you or a loved one was hurt in a wreck and you need an Okeechobee bicycle accident lawyer, our attorneys are here and ready to help you take legal action. Florida laws allow bicycle accident victims to be “made whole” after an accident, which means that accident victims or surviving family members should be fully compensated for both financial and non-economic losses that result from a bike crash. The goal of the Okeechobee bicycle accident lawyers at Steinger Greene & Feiner is to get the maximum in bike accident compensation possible in your particular case. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you to do that.
Under the laws of Florida, bicyclists who are seriously injured in accidents can hold motorists accountable if the driver’s carelessness or law-breaking is the direct cause of the crash. This means whenever a driver speeds or breaks other rules of the road, or whenever a motorist makes unreasonably dangerous decisions behind the wheel, that driver can be made to compensate the bicycle rider hurt in a resulting accident. Bicyclists can also take action even if the rider was partially to blame for a crash. For example, if you were careless in your bike riding but a driver also made an error and was primarily responsible for the crash, you could recover a portion of your losses from the negligent driver. Because of the comparative fault rules that apply in Florida, you should never assume that your own role in a bicycle accident will prevent you from being compensated for the wrongdoing or carelessness of another driver. Bike riders are not the only ones who can pursue a legal claim after a bike crash, either. If an accident results in a fatality, the family members of the bicyclist can pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
