If you or a loved one was involved in a bicycle accident, you may be dealing with doctors and trying to get injuries treated or you may be coping with grief over the death of a loved one. You may also be very concerned about how the bike crash will affect your financial future as you struggle to pay medical bills and come to terms with the fact that you might be unable to work with your bike accident injuries. Dealing with the aftermath of a bike accident can be devastating, but even as you cope with medical issues, you cannot forget to pay attention to the legal ones. The laws in Florida ensure that bicycle accident victims or surviving family members of those killed in crashes do not sustain financial loss if the crash was caused by another motorist. However, it is up to injured victims or their families to pursue a claim to get the monetary compensation the law allows. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our experienced Port St. Lucie bicycle accident attorneys have represented injured victims throughout Florida. We are here and ready to use our legal knowledge to help with your case, so contact us today.
When a bike accident happens, often the driver of the vehicle is to blame. Motorists are expected to behave with reasonable care when operating their vehicles in order to protect bicycle riders, and if a driver has not done this, the vehicle operator should be responsible for covering losses he or she has caused. Florida allows bicyclists injured in crashes, or their surviving family members, to obtain compensation for both serious injuries and wrongful death from a driver who causes a bike wreck. There are two primary ways you can protect your legal rights and get the money that the law allows:
Whichever of these two options you choose to pursue, it is incredibly helpful to be represented by a Port St. Lucie bicycle accident attorney in handling your case.
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.
My experience with Steinger, Greene & Feiner was a very positive experience. They addressed my needs right away. I didn’t expect to get a lawyer as quickly as I did. I got a phone call the next day and it was Steve Sheinfeld. He was very professional and courteous. I signed up because I had confidence right away… Steve was willing to walk through this journey with me, where I could walk away feeling a lot better.
