Riding Safely in Boca Raton

Many state and local clubs and advocacy groups for cyclists can help provide information about riding safely. Bicycle regulations in Boca Raton law are found in the Florida Statutes. Knowing the law can help cyclists not only protect their safety but protect against unfair charges.

In a personal injury case for a bicycle accident, the cyclist’s damages will be reduced by whatever percentage the jury finds the cyclist to have contributed to their own injuries, up to 50%. If the cyclist is found 51% or more at fault, they are barred from recovery entirely. This doctrine is known as modified contributory negligence.

Challenging Unsafe Drivers

When a driver hits a bicyclist due to negligence or recklessness, the results can be particularly serious because a bicyclist is largely unprotected. At the scene of an accident, whether the accident was minor or severe, it is important to seek medical treatment if the cyclist suspects any type of injury. Sometimes the shock of an accident causes someone not to realize they are in pain and seriously injured.

Once it becomes clear that an injury has occurred, a trip to the emergency room or doctor is very important. Some common bicycle accident injuries are head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. It is also important to seek recommended follow-up treatment. Someone who has been in an accident must care for their health above all, and in the process, they are also creating evidence to present to the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
