Florida Personal Injury Lawyer – Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can produce severe, even life-threatening injuries, especially when a motor vehicle is involved. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, as well as other losses you may have suffered due to the accident. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible following your bicycle accident is the best way for you to know if you may be eligible for certain benefits. Bicycle accident attorney Mark J. Leeds has the experience, expertise, and personal ethics to review your case and to provide you with the sound legal counsel you need in order to determine how to best proceed.
Bicycle Accidents – Various Scenarios with Serious Injuries as the Result
A bicycle rider is particularly vulnerable in an accident. Even riders who wear helmets can suffer serious and catastrophic injuries due to being relatively unprotected from asphalt, other vehicles, road signs, and anything else into or onto which they could be flung, crushed, or propelled. Injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds has dealt with a variety of bicycle accidents in his over 30 years as a bicycle accident attorney, including cases in which:
- Bicycle riders who were hit while making turns by cars at intersections
- Riders who were hit by a car driver opening a door onto the street without first looking
- Cyclists who were hit by drivers who failed to yield at stop signs or traffic lights
- A child who was learning to ride on a quiet neighborhood street and was hit by a speeding vehicle
- Bicyclists who have been hit by drivers making lane changes without looking
- Riders who have been injured after being forced off the road by trucks or other vehicles
- Bicycle riders injured by drunk, distracted, and other impaired drivers
- … and more.

Florida accident attorney Mark J. Leeds has successfully dealt with injury cases involving children for over 30 years. He has both the compassion and the legal expertise to help to guide you through this very difficult time so that you have the possibility of obtaining the remuneration that you and your child may deserve.
Evidence is Key for Your Bicycle Accident Lawyer
In order to effectively advocate on your behalf, it is important that personal injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds have access to as much evidence as possible regarding the bicycle accident. To that end, Mark will thoroughly investigate the accident scene and any vehicles involved, including the bicycle itself. Consequently, it is important for you to leave the bicycle unrepaired, your helmet in its post-accident condition, and any articles of clothing that may have been torn or ripped by the accident exactly as they are. This is also why a prompt consultation with your accident attorney is most beneficial in building a case for your bicycle injuries.
