Seek The Help of an Experienced and Knowledgeable Personal Injury Attorney

Cape Coral / Fort Myers Bicycle Accident
Injury Attorneys

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.

Why hire a board certified trial attorney?

Not all personal injury, wrongful death, property and contract disputes, insurance claims, and real estate foreclosures end up in court, but it is impossible to know which litigation will go to trial, and the process can seem daunting.

Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney has been recommended by peers and judges for this special designation, and has successfully passed an arduous written exam to earn the certification. In fact, according to the Florida Bar web site, there are only two Board Certified trial attorneys in the entire city of Cape Coral.

Board Certified Attorneys are especially well prepared to be your advocate throughout court proceedings because of our acquired knowledge, experience and dogged attention to detail. We have to be able to command attention and speak persuasively with an understanding of courtroom dynamics. In a situation where one mistake can mean the difference between a positive or negative outcome, a board certified civil trial advocate like Smith & Valentine Law can ensure that your legal rights are well protected.
