Naples Bicycle Accident Attorney

Information About Bicycle Accidents

Under Florida Statutes §316 .2065(1) (2011), cyclists have "all of the rights and all of the duties applicable to the driver of any other vehicle," which includes the right of way at intersections and even the right to take the whole lane when the shoulder is not wide enough for safe passing.

Despite the fact that bike riders are afforded full legal status on the road, a large percentage of drivers deny them the right of way. In the process they place the cyclist at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries or death. Don't let a negligent or reckless driver escape liability for causing your pain and suffering. Take legal action now to hold the driver accountable and recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim.

Not all bike accidents are serious enough to be reported to the police, but according to statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 4,925 cycling crashes in 2010, 93% of which resulted in some degree of injury to the rider. Broken bones are common injuries suffered among cyclists, whether it is an arm or leg or a collarbone, while injuries such as road rash and damage to internal organs are also widespread.

Even when the rider is wearing a helmet, there is a significant risk of traumatic brain injury, and if the force of impact is great enough the victim may suffer a paralyzing spinal cord injury such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. Cyclists deserve to enjoy their right to the road and should not be at risk for such terrible trauma. Our Naples personal injury attorney is here to help when you or a loved one has suffered injuries and losses at the hands of another.
