Uncovering The Causes Of Bicycle Accidents In Florida

Florida’s scenic routes and year-round sunshine make it a haven for cyclists, but this also comes with increased risks. We are personal injury attorneys who believe that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to preventing bicycle accidents and getting compensation for injured bicyclists.

Dumas & Sanclemente, PLLC, is a valuable resource for people injured while bicycling. We’re here to shed light on the common causes of these accidents and how we can help if you’ve been affected by one.

Common Risks On The Road

Bicycling is a popular and eco-friendly mode of transportation in Florida, but cyclists face numerous hazards on the road. Understanding these dangers, often pointing to vehicle drivers’ negligence, is the first step in promoting safer cycling and reducing accidents:

  • Distracted driving by motorists: When drivers engage with their phones, adjust the radio or become visually or cognitively distracted, they endanger everyone on the road, especially cyclists.
  • Ignoring traffic signs: Disregarding stop signs or signals can lead to catastrophic consequences for bicyclists, who may be crossing intersections under the assumption that drivers will obey the law.
  • Carelessness behind the wheel: Speeding and a lack of situational awareness can prevent drivers from reacting in time to avoid a collision with a cyclist.

Cyclists are often less visible and more vulnerable than other road users. That’s why at Dumas & Sanclemente, PLLC, we advocate for heightened awareness and stricter adherence to traffic laws to protect our cycling community.

Legal Protection For Cyclists

As attorneys who care deeply about our community, we’ve seen firsthand the devastating impact bicycle accidents can have on individuals and families. Our commitment extends beyond the courtroom, as we strive to educate both drivers and cyclists about sharing the road responsibly. We fight for justice when our clients have been injured through negligent acts like the following:

  • Right of way violations: Many accidents occur because drivers fail to yield the right of way to bicyclists, either out of ignorance or impatience.
  • Doorings: A simple act of negligence, such as opening a car door without checking for oncoming cyclists, can cause severe injuries.

At Dumas & Sanclemente, PLLC, our lawyers and staff are dedicated to raising awareness about these preventable accidents and supporting those who have been injured through no fault of their own.
