Bicycle Accident Attorneys in Tampa

Protecting the Rights of Bicyclists throughout Florida

Bicycling is a healthy, affordable, and eco-friendly way to get around. Many Floridians enjoy taking advantage of the warm weather by biking to work, to school, and around town for leisure. Unfortunately, when bicyclists exercise their right to share the road with cars, SUVs, and trucks, they can find themselves at risk of serious injury. Given the relative lack of protection on a bike versus in a car, bicyclists are most likely to sustain serious injuries in the event of an accident.

If you or a loved one was involved in a bike accident, Harmon Parker, P.A. can help you seek the compensation you deserve. When a car or truck driver’s negligence causes an accident that leaves you injured, we can be there to fight for justice. Our Tampa bicycle accident attorneys have decades of combined experience to build a strong case on your behalf.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Even the safest and most knowledgeable bicyclist is still at risk of an accident – bicyclists cannot control the actions and negligence of car and truck drivers. On top of that, even a bicyclist wearing protective gear is still at risk of suffering severe injuries.

Bicycle accidents are often caused by car and truck drivers who:

  • Are inattentive or drive negligently
  • Speed
  • Ride too close to a bike lane
  • Make turns or change lanes without checking for bicyclists
  • Pull into driveways or out of parking lots without checking for bicyclists
  • Drive while intoxicated
  • Fail to obey traffic laws and signals

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Cyclists have little protection between themselves and the road and can suffer life-changing or even fatal injuries in the event of a crash with a car or truck. In fact, according to most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Florida had the highest number of cyclist fatalities in 2017 with 125 deaths; this translates to nearly 6 cyclist fatalities per million people in the Sunshine State.

Some of the most common injuries suffered in bicycle accidents include:

  • Road rash
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations / loss of limb
  • Dental injuries
