Bicycling accidents cause many fatalities and personal injuries each year. Many bicycle accidents are completely preventable, since they’re usually caused by the negligence of motorists or by defective bicycles and products. If you are a pedestrian or cyclist who has survived an accident or if you've lost a loved one to a bicycle accident, a Hollywood bicycle accident lawyer at Flaxman Law Group can help. We have successfully represented many clients who have suffered due to the negligence of another person. We have helped many bicyclists get excellent medical care and the support they needed to rebuild their lives after an accident.Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle collisions and bicycle accidents can cause severe injuries. Neck and head injuries are very common, and many bicyclists suffer brain damage after a serious bicycle accident. Spinal cord injuries, nerve damage, broken limbs, and even permanent injuries are not uncommon.
Unfortunately, cyclists involved in accidents often miss considerable amounts of work while they are recovering. Injuries may require reconstructive surgery or lengthy and expensive medical treatment. Some require rehabilitation, special medical devices, and big changes to a patient’s life. A patient may need at-home care, for example.
Not all insurance companies are willing to pay a bicyclist without a struggle -- don't forget, many insurance companies hire attorneys of their own. Bicyclists should hire their own bicycle accident lawyer in Hollywood or their community to represent them so that they can get the best medical treatment and the best support they can.
A bicyclist or pedestrian who has been injured in an accident may be entitled to Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits up to $10,000 from the vehicle that injured them or from any vehicle owned in their household. In order to get the full Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits you may be entitled to, it is important to speak to qualified Florida attorneys -- such as those at The Law Offices of Flaxman Law Group -- who have experience dealing with bicycle injury cases.Working with an Accident Attorney in South Florida
