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.

Client Reviews
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
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
