Fast Facts: Bicycle Accidents

Bike Accidents

If you are hit by a car driver…

If you are hit by a car driver in a bicycle accident and have suffered injuries, then calling the police and getting an accident report is clearly the best action to take.

Preserve the evidence

Pictures of the injury; road marks at the intersection; keep the helmet; keep the bicycle; and do not speak with the insurance company until you consult with a Florida personal injury attorney. Get the names and phone numbers of eyewitnesses.

Helmets are not legally required!

Helmets are not legally required unless you are under 16. Florida law states that you cannot be penalized for not wearing a helmet if you were not required to do so. Helmets are not a guarantee of safety against bicycle head injury or bike brain injury, but it is clear that they can prevent some otherwise fatal bicycle accidents.

Where do most bicycle accidents happen?

Most bicycle accidents happen at an intersection.

More risk when…

It is clearly more risky to be going against the car traffic instead of riding in the same direction.

More dangerous at…

Riding at night is far more dangerous.

Frequent bicycle accidents are due to:

right or left turning cars not seeing you; cars overtaking you and drifting into you; car doors opening into your path of travel – or getting “doored”.

Minimum distance requirement

There are states that have adopted a minimum distance requirement between bicycles and cars.

Failure of the driver to see you at night

Failure of the driver to see you at night – your equipment, outfit visibility and other technical matters – are important factors in a potential bicycle accident injury lawsuit.

An experienced Bicycle Injury Lawyer

Bicycle accident lawsuits should have an experienced bicycle injury lawyer that understands the jury composition of the community and the prejudices and opinions of the community and individuals on the jury panel as regards their feelings about bicyclists.
