If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you should not be responsible for the ensuing expenses. Instead, seek the help of a Lehigh Acres bicycle accident lawyer to help you obtain financial recovery for your injuries. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our attorneys take the time to listen to your story and then implement a plan of action designed to promote your best interests.
Under Florida Statute §95.11, you have four years from the date of your bicycle accident to seek compensation. If you lost a loved one in this type of accident, then a qualifying family member has a two-year period from the date of their loved one’s passing to file a civil action. Because your time to act may be limited, we encourage you to reach out to us as soon as you can.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
According to data collected by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Florida leads the nation in bicycle accident fatalities. Bicyclists are extremely vulnerable in the event of a collision since they are not afforded the same exterior protections typical of motor vehicles. Regardless of how your accident happened, a Lehigh Acres bicycle accident lawyer can pursue compensation on your behalf. One of the first measures your legal team will undertake is determining how your accident happened. From there, they can assign liability.
Some of the reasons why bicycle accidents occur include:
- Distracted driving, such as texting or eating
- Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or fatigue
- Not employing defensive driving practices
- Not adhering to traffic signals
- Road rage
- Looked, but failed to see (LBFTS)
Our team wants to get started on your case today. For more information, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733.
Recovering Damages From a Bicycle Accident
Every Lehigh Acres bicycle accident will feature different damages because no two collisions are the same.
If your case is successful, you may be able to recover compensation for the following losses:
- Medical care, including doctor visits, hospital stays, and physical therapy
- Medical supplies, such as crutches, bandages, and prescriptions
- Lost wages and reduced earning capability
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
In many accident claims, Florida does not place a statutory cap. That means that there are no restrictions on the amount of compensation you can pursue for your damages.
