Tampa and St. Petersburg
Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Cycling is a great way to view and enjoy the Sunshine State and all it has to offer and that’s why the number of bikers in Florida is geometrically growing year after year, especially in St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay!
Unfortunately, the number of bicycling deaths in Florida is also growing and has doubled the national average. It’s regrettable to say that in Florida, bicycle accidents are very common and most cases involve serious injuries or even death of the rider.
More so, the most unfortunate thing about Florida bicycle accidents is that often these accidents are hit and run incidents. In these cases, even if the vehicle driver is found, they may not accept responsibility for the injuries or death of the bicycle rider.
If you or a loved one is involved in a bicycle accident in St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay Florida, don’t let anyone convince you to sweep your claims under the carpet. Contact an expert bicycle accident attorney at Pipas Law Group.
Bicycle Accident Law in Florida
Bicycle accident laws in Florida pertain specifically to bicycle accidents that occur in Florida, not another state. These laws were meant to protect those suffering from injuries or loss of life following a bicycle accident due to the negligence of another party.
Here is how Pipas Law attorneys can help you following a bicycle accident:
- Filing a claim
- Attempting to negotiate a settlement offer
- Filing a lawsuit
- Litigating the case
- Taking the case to trial or other alternative dispute resolutions
Be mindful that Florida’s law states that cyclists have all the rights and all the duties applicable to the driver of any other vehicles. Therefore, if you want to file a claim or negotiate a favorable settlement offer, then contact Pipas Law Group to help you handle the case in a professional manner.
