colossions cyclistsCollisions involving cyclists in Miami are unnervingly common, as often both cyclist and motorist are forced to share the path in what may be an uncomfortable and dangerous lane. Whether you or a loved one was cycling or driving the motor vehicle, our expert attorneys can help.

We have been helping individuals bring their personal injury claims for decades throughout our 100 cumulative years of experience. We understand Florida law and how it applies to the particular scenario in which a cyclist and motorist collide. No matter your role in this collision, we are ready to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Florida Law

Under Florida law, the cyclist is given the same rights as the motorist, including the right of way, which means that the cyclist has as much right to ride in the lane as a motorist does. Often, this becomes a problem in single-lane traffic where there is no bike lane nor is there a sidewalk for the bike to ride in, thus resulting in dangerous maneuvering around the cyclist as the motorists attempt to speed past. This can cause the following types of accidents to occur:

  • Vehicle bumps into or hits cyclist, potentially causing injury
  • Vehicle runs over cyclist, injuring or resulting in death
  • Vehicle runs over cycle, damaging it
  • Cycle scratches vehicle or causes other damage
Who is at Fault in Collisions Involving Cyclists in Miami?

Every scenario is different, which is why our firm takes the initiative to assess the scene of the collision and collect any and all evidence that can be used to advance your claim. A private investigator is hired if needed. Witness accounts, police investigation reports, the location of the damage to the bicycle or vehicle itself, and photography of the scene will be taken into consideration as we help prepare your claim for an ultimately favorable resolution. A look into the other party’s driving record will indicate if they have committed driving infractions in the past and will signal if there had been any notice of negligence leading to your collision.

We will explore and pursue every avenue to collect money damages for you in order to ensure that the at fault parties take responsibility under the law and make you as whole as possible. If you have been injured, there might be doctor bills, hospital bills, surgery costs, rehabilitation costs, and prescription pills, which should be paid for by the responsible party. As well, we will seek monies for your pain and suffering from your injury. If your loved one has passed due to the accident, we will pursue the claim to the full extent of the law, guiding the family throughout this difficult process, as we have done with many clients with great success. Fees are not collected until the case is successfully resolved.

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.
★★★★★
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.

★★★★★
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.
