Hialeah is a city in Florida's Miami-Dade County. As of 2010, the city was the sixth largest in Florida. The name of the city is said to come from Native American words meaning either "Pretty Prairie" or "Upland Prairie." This may because the area is located on a prairie situated between the Everglades and Biscayne Bay. Hialeah is naturally beautiful and is also known for being very diverse. In fact, the city has the second highest percentage of Cuban Americans of any town in the US.
Like many cities in Florida, Hialeah has many bicycle enthusiasts. The city's mild climate and beautiful streets make it an ideal place to bicycle. However, like many Florida cities, Hialeah does see its fair share of serious bicycle accidents and traffic accidents involving bicyclists. Unfortunately, these accidents often lead to fatalities and devastating injuries, since the difference in size and force between a bicycle and a vehicle are substantial.
Unfortunately, the results of a Hialeah bicycle accident can be especially devastating for children. Since children are quite small, they're more likely to sustain serious Hialeah brain injuries as the bumper of a car or truck is most likely to reach their head. Children can easily be run over on their bicycles and are less able to ward off infection and are more likely to succumb to serious injuries. Even adults involved in a Hialeah bicycle accident generally sustain serious injuries to the chest and facial area, as they are often thrown from their bicycles and onto the road in a collision.
Florida laws designed to help Hialeah bicycle accident victims involve personal injury laws which allow the victims who have been injured by someone's negligence or recklessness to pursue a legal claim. If you believe that you have a Hialeah bicycle accident claim, however, it is important to consult with a qualified Hialeah personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury. Valuable witness information and documentation about your accident may be lost unless you act promptly. There are also statutes of limitations in place which limit how long you can wait before you can file a lawsuit. Consulting with a Hialeah personal injury attorney quickly after your accident improves your chances of successful resolution to your legal claim.
