In most cities in Florida, bicyclists are consider to be pedestrians; this means they have the same rights as pedestrians do when they are entering a crosswalk, riding on a sidewalk, or traveling along in the bike lane. When bicycle accidents occur because of negligent car or truck drivers, these cyclists have a right to obtain justice for the accident and the injuries, damages, and loss involved.
That’s why, at the Glover Law Firm, we recommend that a bicyclist contact us immediately after an accident has occurred. With the help of our Ocala personal injury lawyers, bicyclists will not only maintain their right to file insurance claims against the negligent party, but we will also assist them in receiving as much financial compensation for the bicycle accident as possible.
Why You Need a Bicycle Accident Lawyer
If you’re injured in a bicycle accident, what are your first steps? Unlike a vehicle to vehicle accident, who do you call? What should you do about medical expenses? Contacting the other party’s insurance company and trying to file a claim would be frustrating at best. Questions and concerns like this are exactly why you need the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer after a bicycle accident in Florida.
What if your bicycle accident doesn’t involve a car? Whether you are hit by a golf cart or motorcycle, or even bitten by a dog while traveling by bicycle, you have the right to compensation. Unfortunately, many insurance companies do the best they can to pay the least amount possible. If you attempt to settle the claim yourself, you may end up with 30% or even 40% less from the insurance company than you would if you had been driving another vehicle instead of a bicycle.
