Bicycle Accidents in Florida
Bicycle accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm when up against much larger vehicles on our roads. Especially when children are involved, incredibly severe injuries tend to occur. In one year’s time in the entire state of Florida, over 6,100 bicycle accidents take place and many of these collisions lead to injuries and fatalities. If you or someone you love has suffered severe harm as a result of an accident, you should always speak with a Florida bicycle accident attorney in your time of need.
Because bicycle accidents are some of the most horrific accidents on our roadways, drivers are urged to take special precautions around these parties.
