Ways That Pedestrians And Bicyclists Get Injured
Florida is an ideal destination for bicyclists. For years, our state has embraced this form of transportation and recreation. However, our state also ranks among the most dangerous for bicyclists. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Florida in 2016 had the highest bicycle fatality rate per million residents. The dangers bicyclists face include:
- Getting struck by a car
- Falling from a bicycle
- Injury caused by roadway/walkway in disrepair
Pedestrians, too, face similar hazards. While walking in a crosswalk, a pedestrian can get struck by a vehicle. A slip, trip and fall incident also can occur on a walkway or sidewalk in disrepair.
Such injuries can lead to loss of income and mounting medical bills. You deserve an aggressive personal injury lawyer ready to take on insurance companies. If you’re injured, it’s crucial to contact authorities and gather documentation such as police reports, medical reports and photographic evidence. Then contact an attorney immediately.
