Have You Been Injured in a Florida or West Palm Beach Bike Accident?
Bicycle riding is gaining popularity in West Palm Beach and throughout Florida as an inexpensive form of transportation, a great way to exercise, and an enjoyable form of recreation for the entire family. As most cities throughout the country, West Palm Beach has taken steps to make it safer for bicyclists to ride in and around our city.
Bicycle safety advocates have lobbied for bicycle lanes and stronger laws protecting bicyclists. Unfortunately, no matter what laws are passed to protect bicyclists, bicycle accidents will continue to happen because motorists do not watch out for bicyclists. If you are injured in a bike accident, you have a legal right to receive compensation for your injuries.
Florida Personal Injury Laws Protect Bicyclists Too
The same personal injury laws that protect accident victims in a motor vehicle accident protect bicyclists in a bike accident. If another driver is responsible for causing a West Palm Beach bike accident, that driver can be held liable for your damages, injuries, and losses under Florida’s personal injury laws. In addition, to receive compensation for your lost wages, property damage, and medical expenses, you may also be entitled to receive compensation for your mental anguish, emotional suffering, and physical pain.
The amount of compensation you are entitled to receive will depend on several factors including the type of your injury, the severity of your injury, and the facts surrounding your bike accident. Our experienced West Palm Beach bike accident attorneys have the experience, skills, and resources necessary to maximize your recovery to help you as you continue to recover from your injuries and get back to your normal daily activities.
You Have A Limited Time To File A Bike Accident Claim in Florida
As with other personal injury lawsuits, Florida’s statute of limitations has strict limits on the time you have to file a bike accident lawsuit. If the insurance company for the driver or other responsible party fails to fairly compensate you, a bike accident lawsuit may be necessary.
