Riding a bicycle in Florida can be extremely dangerous. In 2016, there were 6,667 traffic accidents involving a bicyclist. 140 of these bicyclists died as a result of their injuries from their accident.
In Florida, bicyclists have the same rights to the roadways as all motorized vehicles and must obey all traffic laws. When a bicyclist is involved in an accident with a motorized vehicle, the bicyclist has the right to use their personal injury protection (PIP) benefits from their personal automobile insurance policy to receive medical treatment for their injuries as a result of that accident. A bicyclist also has the right to use the uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM) coverage found under their personal automobile insurance policy in case when applicable.
Bicycle accident cases can be very complex and have many nuances. If you or someone you know has been involved in a bicycle accident in South Florida, call us at (786) 899-3500. We may be able to assist you. All consultations are free.
