We Guide Bicycle Accident Victims through the Process of Obtaining Full and Fair Compensation
Providing steadfast support after a serious accident
Bicycle accidents often lead to tragic and long-term consequences for victims. Between 2007 and 2016, statistics show that Florida was the most dangerous state for bicyclists, with the state experiencing 6.2 fatalities for every 100,000 people. Nationally, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that 840 cyclists were killed in 2016. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, our experienced bicycle accident attorneys at Osborne & Francis Law Firm PLLC are here to guide you through the process of filing a claim and obtaining maximum compensation. We have extensive experience litigating challenging personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits stemming from accidents involving bicyclists.
Bicycle accidents happen in an instant due to a variety of negligent behaviors
Motorists are required to drive responsibly and pay attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, many common behaviors by drivers lead to thousands of collisions with cyclists each year. The most common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI)
- Failing to yield to bicyclists
- “Buzzing” or side-swiping cyclists
- Failing to leave enough space between the vehicle and cyclist when passing
- Reckless driving
In any of these situations, serious injuries and even death can occur. We’re ready to investigate your case and develop a strong strategy to help you recover the damages you deserve.
Understanding all types of lawsuits stemming from bicycle accidents
In addition to the above causes of action, you may also be able to pursue additional causes of action depending on the circumstances of your case. Our attorneys have handled several products liability cases against bicycle manufacturers for accidents caused by defective or unreasonably dangerous bicycle parts.
Road conditions may also contribute to bicycle accidents. If roads and sidewalks are improperly maintained or repaired, you may be entitled to compensation from the applicable state agency responsible for such maintenance. Regardless of how your accident occurred, we take the time to fully investigate your claims and gather witness testimony and evidence to support your case.
