Ensuring that Bicycle Accident Victims in Jacksonville Receive the Compensation to Which they are Entitled
Florida’s famously mild weather allows residents and visitors to bicycle nearly year-round. Using a bicycle for recreation or to commute from place to place is cost-effective, friendly to the environment, and a great source of exercise. Unfortunately, it also places you at a risk of serious injury. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports1 that there were more than 3,000 reported bicycle accidents this year. Bicyclists are at a significant risk of injury when they are involved in accidents, as they have little protection compared to motorists. Fortunately, in many cases, they are legally entitled to compensation for their losses, including their medical expenses, lost income, loss of quality of life, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
After the initial shock of a bicycle accident wears off, you may start to wonder whether you will be able to recover compensation from the person or party responsible for your accident. As is other matters related to accidental injuries, the answer to this question depends on whether your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. There are many types of negligence that can lead to a serious bicycle accident, including the following:
These are just a few examples of the type of negligent conduct that could result in a bicycle accident. Because it can be difficult for a person without legal training to spot negligence, it is to speak to an attorney as soon as possible after you have been involved in an accident.
