Melbourne Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Trusted Legal Counsel After a Bike Accident
Bicyclists can wear helmets and pads to protect them from injuries in a crash, but these pieces of safety equipment can only do so much when a car causes the accident. It is not unusual for bicycle riders to suffer catastrophic injuries while the negligent motorist who caused the accident walks away unscathed. Not only does this seem unfair, but it is also extremely disheartening.
From all of us at Nance Cacciatore in Melbourne, we want to encourage you to not lose hope and to not give up on your recovery. If a negligent driver crashed into you, causing a terrible bicycle accident and serious injuries, then you should consider filing against their insurance policy. Our attorneys would be proud to help you understand your options, create a claim, and pursue every penny owed to you. If you don’t want to do any of the legwork of your case, you can leave it all up to us. We’ll do the heavy lifting and negotiations while you rest.
Bicyclists in Melbourne trust our team. Call (321) 233-9885 to find out why.
Catastrophic Injuries Suffered in Bike Accidents
Our law firm is used to working on client cases that involve life-changing injuries. We specifically focus on these cases because we know that such clients need outstanding legal counsel more than the average client. If you were catastrophically injured in a bicycle accident, as is common for bicyclists, then we want to hear from you.
Catastrophic injuries often involved in a bike accident claim include:
We know that looking at the damages that you have already experienced is not enough. When calculating the value of an injury claim, we consider what will likely affect you years into the future. For example, if your head was injured in the crash, then the consequences of your symptoms could be permanent. We can work with medical professionals and financial experts to figure out how much treatment and compensation you will need to stay healthy and financially stable.
Hit & Run Bicycle Accidents
As unthinkable as it might be, many drivers who cause a bicycle accident try to flee the scene to escape liability. Unfortunately, some succeed, leaving behind an injured bicycle rider who unjustly has no clear path to recovery.
If this happened to you, then you should know that you might be able to get coverage from your own insurance provider. In Florida, some personal injury protection (PIP) insurance and uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance policies can cover you when you are hit by a car, even if you weren’t in a car yourself. By filing against these policies, you will create a first-party claim, which can come with its own complications. Thankfully, our team knows how to deal with them.
First-party claims can still result in compensation that helps you pay for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Bicycle replacement
