For many, cycling is not only a fun form of exercise and recreation, it is also a mode of transportation to get around town or commute to work or school. Since motorists and cyclists share the roadways, accidents can happen, often due to negligence on the part of the motorist. If you have been injured in a collision with a motorist while riding a bicycle, we invite you to contact Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., and speak with one of our experienced bike accident lawyers. The bicycle accident attorneys at our Melbourne, Titusville, and Cocoa law offices serve Central Florida with effective legal representation, and we will work tirelessly to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
Though younger bicyclists may ride on the sidewalks, most cyclists ride on the paved road or designated bike lanes—where available—alongside large, powerful motor vehicles. Bicycles offer no protection during collisions, making cyclists vulnerable to serious injuries, particularly when accidents involve large trucks, SUVs, and other massive vehicles large blind spots. Though helmets offer some protection to the head, the rest of the body is left largely unprotected, further increasing the risk of serious injuries in the event of an accident.
Those who sustain injuries in a bike accident caused by the negligence of a careless driver usually face overwhelming financial hardships both immediately and over the long term. Injuries—both minor and severe—often require expensive medical care. Serious injuries can leave victims permanently disabled or result in wrongful death. Fatal injuries cause the victim’s loved ones to struggle financially and emotionally while attempting to deal with the trauma of losing a family member. Whatever the circumstances surrounding your case, you need a qualified bike accident attorney to pursue legal action against the negligent party and recoup the losses and expenses you have suffered due to the accident.
