Accidents betweens cars and bicycles happen all too often on our highways.  There are things that both drivers of cars and riders of bicycles can do to avoid accidents.  When someone does not follow the rules of the road, an accident can and usually does happen.  Bicycle riders need to stay as far to the right of the road as possible and make themselves as visible as possible.  Drivers of motor vehicles need to be vigilant in watching for other people on the roadway and avoid them at all cost.  The driver of a car oftentimes has a greater responsibility than a pedestrian or bicycle rider because of the greater mass of the car itself.  The driver of a car has a duty to slow down or stop to avoid hitting a pedestrian or bicycle even when the pedestrian or bicycle is not where they are supposed to be.  This is why it is so critical for the driver of a car to be so vigilant to avoid hitting, injuring, or killing another person.  If you or a loved oned has been injured in a car accident, please contact a Central Florida car accident or personal injury lawyer for a free consultation of your rights and responsibilities.  Most cases are accepted on a contingency basis which means no fees or costs unless there is a financial recovery.  Should you wish to hire a central florida car accident or personal injury lawyer with Moody Law, P.A., please contact us with the information provided on our website.
