Here in Tampa, bicycle accidents are common due to the large numbers of people who enjoy riding their bikes. Whether running errands, trying to beat vehicular traffic, or casually riding through our neighborhoods, parks and trails, bikes are a primary method of transportation for many here in Florida.
Several hundred people are killed every year in bicycle related accidents and the number of bike injury victims has continued to rise here in Florida and throughout the U.S. in recent years.
A large number of bike and bicycle crashes are due to the negligence of another driver. The negligence of many drivers often includes a lack of respect for the rights motorists are to share with bicyclists on the roadway along with failing to pay attention to their surroundings. Speeding, texting while driving, distracted driving, intoxication, and fatigue are all considered negligent behavior from a driver. Due to the size of the other vehicles on the roadway, and being more difficult for drivers to notice, bicyclists often face more serious injuries.
If you have suffered a severe or disabling injury while walking or riding your bicycle, you should contact an experienced Tampa bicycle accident lawyer immediately following any bicycle crash. The attorneys at Fernandez Law Group have the skills needed as well as proven results to help ensure you are properly compensated for your losses.
