Helping in a Wide Range of Bicycling Accidents

Our attorneys have a record of achieving substantial jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of victims of bicycling accidents. Many cases involve cars or trucks making left or right turns and running into bikers, which is by far the most common type of accident involving bicycles.

Our trial attorneys have also successfully represented bicyclists injured because of dangerous road conditions and defective products in incidents involving:

* Construction site gravel
* Sand and gravel on roadways
* Road resurfacing
* Railroad tracks
* Grooved pavement and uneven sidewalks
* Bike helmet failure
* Mechanical failures
* Rims collapsing
* Chains breaking and catching

The Rights and Responsibilities of Bicycle Riders

Bicycle riders have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicle drivers. They must stop at traffic signs and signals and observe traffic laws. Bicyclists must display lights and reflectors while riding at night, and must stay as close as possible to the right-hand side of the road.

In the case of a bike accident in which the bicyclist was out of compliance with any of these conditions, he or she may be partially at fault, but still has the right to recover damages. Miami bike accident lawyers at our firm are committed to thorough and systematic case preparation designed for effective presentation to a jury.
