Riders may not always be safe while on the road. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that nearly over 62,000 people were treated in emergency rooms annually in the US—after motor vehicle accidents. If you were involved in a bicycle accident due to the negligence of another person, you may have the right to seek compensation.
A Lake Mary bicycle accident lawyer can represent you in filing your claim. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 for a free consultation.
What to Do After a Bicycle Accident
If you have not already done so, you should collect eyewitness contact information. You should take photos and video of the accident scene, if you can do so safely. Then, seek medical attention immediately. Even if you do not feel injured, you should get looked at by a medical professional.
If you later decide to pursue compensation, consider working with a lawyer who can walk you through the often confusing process. At times, the insurance providers may offer you a quick settlement amount. However, seek legal advice first before accepting any sum (because the initial offer may not cover all your damages). Consult with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733, and we will guide you.
Why You May Decide to Work With a Lake Mary Bicycle Accident Lawyer
A lawyer can represent you in your negotiations with the insurance companies. In fact, they can negotiate for you. You will not have to speak to the insurance company. We will do that for you.
We can also represent you at trial if we cannot reach a fair settlement. At this point, we must prove the impacts of incurring losses on your present and future life. We will utilize evidence we collect to support your testimony. We will argue your case to the judge (or jury) in an attempt to secure damages for you.
A Lake Mary bicycle accident lawyer will help you pursue fair compensation from the liable parties. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 for more information.
The Statute of Limitations Could Limit How Long You Have to File a Lawsuit
Under § 95.11 of the Florida Statutes, you generally have four years to file a lawsuit for compensation to cover your accident-related injuries and damages. A lawyer can speak with you to determine if you may be able to toll this timeline (or delay it). If you lost a loved one to a bicycle accident, you may be able to pursue damages to cover burial losses, medical bills for treatment your loved one received prior to their death, and noneconomic damages—like pain and suffering or loss of guidance.
