As Florida is one of the leading states for bicycle accidents and deaths from these accidents, if you are injured, or a loved one has died due to a bicycle accident, seek the help of an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney, who has dealt with the numerous details of these heart-wrenching cases and understands applicable Florida law. Smith & Valentine Law have proudly served Cape Coral/Fort Myers and surrounding Southwest Florida counties for over 25 years, earning the trust and respect of countless personal injury victims, and serving as their voice in trial.
Case law is rampant with bicycle accident cases, and the myriad of laws that apply to these cases can be very confounding. Even if police find a bicyclist at fault with their investigation, an experienced personal injury attorney can usually do an even more thorough investigation. Based on comparative fault law, an experienced attorney can often find the bicyclist is not entirely at fault, and damages may be able to be compensated. Many factors enter in to areas of fault, such as poor quality or unavailability of the infrastructure needed for bicycle safety.
