Florida individuals injured in a bicycle accident are found understandably disillusioned at the time of impact. Depending on the severity of impact, injuries from a bike accident can leave one unconscious and fairly beat up. Most Broward County bicycle accidents don’t occur from the impact of another car, but rather, as a result of hazardous road conditions.
Florida residents who choose cycling as an alternate form of transportation should be aware of their rights. At the time of the bicycle accident, it is essential to take photographs of the road, surrounding signs, or lack thereof. That’s because in truth, if the road conditions are indeed hazardous, then it is the city, county, or state government entity that is responsible for proper maintenance in order to prevent such accidents.
Often, people don’t realize the serious nature of bicycle accident injuries that are due to hazardous road conditions. Below is a list of common injuries due to bicycle accidents.
- Brain and head injuries
- Bone fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Facial or dental injuries
- Abrasions and lacerations
- Amputation and death
Some people who are injured from a bike accident caused by dangerous road conditions don’t realize that compensation is their legal right. If you have sustained a bicycle accident injury, you may be eligible for financial recovery from your devastating loss.
If you have been injured in a Broward County bicycle accident that was not your fault, you need to talk to a Florida Bicycle Accident Attorney who can assist you in filing a successful claim.
