The first step after being in a serious North Miami bicycle accident is to seek medical care. The second step is to ensure that you understand the true cost of your injuries before you accept any insurance claim offers. In order to get help evaluating the cost of your accident, you can contact the Flaxman Law Group to set up a free initial consultation. The legal team at the Flaxman Law Group can help you understand the primary and secondary costs of your injuries. For a North Miami bicycle accident, these may include lost income, replacement costs for your bicycle and other property that has been damaged, medical costs, follow-up medical appointments, transportation costs, and more. If you need to have your home made accessible in order to accommodate your injuries or if you need rehabilitation or additional treatment, these costs will also be considered.
