Most bicycle accident cases are pursued using the legal theory called negligence. Under this theory, a plaintiff must provide evidence that the defendant driver acted negligently and caused an injury as a result.
Negligence and injury are relatively simple to prove in a bicycle accident case. All bicyclists should be protected in the same manner as all other travelers, and a doctor’s examination can typically determine whether an injury was caused by the accident.
During a bicycle accident case, the most difficult element to prove is usually that the defendant failed in their duty to the plaintiff. Evidence supporting this proposition may include a police report that indicates the defendant driver violated a traffic statue or engaged in negligent behavior. Our Lantana bicycle accident attorneys could help an injured person gather this essential evidence to begin filing a legal claim.
Bicycle accident cases can result in severe injuries. Even at a low speed, a collision could throw the rider to the ground, resulting in severe scrapes and cuts. At a higher speed, the collision may push a rider into oncoming traffic or trap them under the defendant’s car. No matter the severity of the crash, the driver responsible could be held legally liable for the injuries that result.
Regardless of the injury or accident, injured plaintiffs cannot demand compensation if they wait too long to file a claim. See: Florida Statutes §95.11. For help with filing a claim promptly, contact a seasoned lawyer.
