A Skilled Bicycle Accident Lawyer Can Protect Your Interests
Not all motorists exercise the same reasonable amount of care and responsibility while navigating through busy roadways. Even just a few seconds of not paying attention can cause serious injuries to bicyclists, or even have fatal consequences. Florida is one of the states with the highest number of bicycle accident fatalities in the country, which is why our bicycle accident lawyers are extensively experienced in bicycle accident cases in Central Florida and Polk County, including Lakeland, Bartow, Winter Haven, and Haines City. The attorneys of Moody Law are compassionate yet aggressive, and can help clients injured by the actions or choices of others to seek just compensation.
Bicycle Accident Causes and Consequences
There are several ways in which a negligent driver can cause an accident with a bicyclist:
- Driving under the influence
- Failure to use turn signals
- Not leaving enough space for cyclists on the shoulder of the road
- Opening a car door as a cyclist is approaching the vehicle
- Running red lights
- Running stop signs
- Road rage or aggressive driving
All of these causes usually result in serious injury of cyclists. Because cyclists are unprotected when in a collision with a car, they face serious health consequences after an accident, such as:
- Brain injury and traumatic brain injury
- Bone fractures
- Contusions and lacerations
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
