Car-Cyclist Collision in Miami

Car-Cyclist AccidentsCycling enthusiasts understand how important it is to follow proper riding procedures, especially in areas that don’t have designated cycling lanes. Unfortunately, if you’ve been involved in a car-cyclist collision in Miami, you have a first-hand account as to how the increasing death toll and injuries of bike riders in our city has impacted the community of cyclists. In fact, Florida is the state with the highest death rate in the country, coming in at nearly one death per 200,000 people, more than double that of the national average, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Because our attorneys have worked with the residents of Miami for decades, we have accumulated the necessary experience and skill to tackle car-cyclist accident claims and can assist you with your claim. You and your family or loved ones deserve compensation for what you or they have been put through; call us today to discuss your claim for compensation due to injuries suffered.

Causes of a Car-Cyclist Collision in Miami

There are a multitude of possible scenarios where collisions happen on the roads and freeways that Miami cyclists use each day. These are but a few examples of how a collision can manifest itself:

  • Car or cyclist running a red light
  • Car encroaching on cyclist’s space
  • No use of turning signals
  • Bumping into or reversing onto cyclist
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Encroaching on right of way
  • Opening door onto the path of cyclist
  • Texting while driving

A cycling collision is a jarring experience, to say the least. The injured person may find themselves under a car, through a windshield, run over, or thrown a distance away due to the impact. Any and all of these collisions can lead to severe damage, resulting in potential loss of limbs or life. If a victim survives, they might incur hefty rehabilitation expenses and costs of medical care, including surgery, for which the responsible person or company should pay, along with compensation for their past and future pain and suffering. For a deceased victim, their family should be compensated for funeral home costs, loss of earnings, and their difficult loss of the family member. There are many directions in which a case can proceed and the party at fault, along with their insurance carrier, will fight to ensure you receive as little compensation as possible.

Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel

I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
