Your Well Being Is Our Top Priority
Bicycle Accident Cases
More and more bicyclists are beginning to utilize the roadways in Florida to remain healthy, and cut down on expenses and transportation costs. Unfortunately, motorists often fail to look out for bicyclists or don’t readily see them on the road. This lack of recognition can lead to deadly accidents and devastating injuries for the rider of the bicycle.
When a collision between a bike and a vehicle occurs, the cyclist on the bike regularly incurs more severe injuries than the driver of the vehicle. For this reason, it is crucial the cyclist receive proper legal representation to guarantee payment of their losses and other injury related medical costs for the rest of their lives.

If you have suffered from an injury due to a biking accident, make sure to contact us today for counsel on how to have the party responsible for the incident to be accountable for the costs of your injuries, suffering, and losses.
Types Of Bike Accident Injuries
The biking community is widely known in Florida for causing dangerous situations for recreational cyclists and biking enthusiast. While the weather can cause hazardous conditions during the hurricane season, the nature of biking can result in unsafe conditions as well. High speeds mixed with traffic, slippery surfaces and poor road conditions can lead to a severe biking accident.
An incident can be classified as a bike accident if the victim received the injury or incurred a loss as a result of being on a bicycle without a motor. Types of injuries that can occur on bikes include:
- Broken Bones – Long-term treatment of broken bones can involve immobilization, which includes anything from a plaster cast to a splint or even surgical screws. In some cases, surgery is needed to implant more permanent forms of immobilization.
- Head Injuries – A head injury is any type of injury that affects a person’s face, head, skull, or brain. Fatal head injuries can occur without the victim even knowing how badly they are injured. This occurs when the victim is struck suddenly and suffers partial memory loss.
- Impaired Vision – Injuries that cause impaired vision or blindness create a lifetime of struggle for victims. If you suffered an eye injury, you may have discovered that it alters your entire way of life, which is why you deserve the maximum compensation for your needs.
- Loss Of A Limb – An amputation can be caused immediately from the occurrence of the accident, or it can be the result of the traumatic injury that requires a limb to be removed to help save the life of the victim from a fatal infection.
- Spinal Cord Injuries – Spinal cord injuries are serious as they can lead to paralysis, the inability to work, and the inability to live a normal life. Many cyclists with spinal cord injuries are not able to return to their former occupation, or their normal way of life.

Causes Of Bicycle Accidents
We understand how frustrating it can be to share the road with motorists who refuse to acknowledge your right as a cyclist. You are entitled to be on the road just as much as another vehicle. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. As a result, bicycle accidents happen when other motorists carelessly do one of the the following:
- Talk or text on the phone while driving
- Fail to give cyclists the right of way
- Cut cyclist off or force them off the road
- Fail to check blind spots for cyclists
- Open doors blindly into a bicycle lane
Other causes may include distractions on inattention, failure to slow down, or running a red light. Roadway defects or construction detours may also be responsible for bicycle accidents. Regardless of the reason for your bicycle accident, make sure you talk to an attorney from Pennekamp Law today so we can review your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.

Many people do not realize that they can recover more than just the physical damages to their bike. There are additional costs such as health care, therapy, pain, suffering, and other losses that can be paid for by insurance companies when legal action is taken.

- Loss of employment
- Time missed from work
- Interest losses
- Medical bills
- Therapy costs
- Mental suffering
- Emotional suffering
- Physical pain
