Orlando Bicycle Accident Attorney

Whether you were hit from behind by an aggressive driver, cut off by an impatient delivery vehicle, or doored while riding past a parked car, as an injured cyclist you are entitled to damages from the at-fault party that caused the crash. Recovering these damages is possible only by filing a personal injury claim and working with an Orlando bicycle accident attorney who has experience as a cyclist and as a litigator. Here at The Hornsby Law Group, our bike crash attorneys fight tooth and nail for our clients’ rights, and are prepared to do everything in our power to help you achieve justice and a desirable outcome in your personal injury case.

Damages in an Orlando Bike Crash Claim

Damages are usually very large in bike crash claims due to the grave injuries from which plaintiffs suffer. As a survivor of a bike crash claim, you may be entitled to the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Projected medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

Common Injuries Bike Crash Victims Suffer

While a victim of a car crash can sustain relatively minor injuries in some of the most violent, high-speed, rollover collisions on the highway, it does not take a considerable amount of speed for a cyclist to be traumatically injured by a two-ton vehicle. Typical injuries in bike collisions include the following:

  • Road rash
  • Contusions and deep lacerations
  • Fractured collarbone
  • Concussion
  • Fractured limbs, ribs, or pelvis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Internal organ damage
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement to the face
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Death

Proving Negligence in an Orlando Bike Collision

In a collision between two motor vehicles, usually both or neither driver is able to give a statement to the police about what happened and who caused the crash. In a collision between a cyclist and a driver, it is almost always the driver who gets to have a say in the official accident report, as the cyclist is already at the hospital by the time police investigators roll around. Further biases exist in every facet of society and the legal system when it comes to blaming cyclists for causing crashes in which they, not the driver, are catastrophically injured. We fight back hard against falls claims of liability on our clients’ behalf. If necessary, we will hire expert witnesses and crash scene forensic experts to testify in court about what truly happened. Chances are, the driver was texting, speeding, or driving impatiently/aggressively, and that you were not at all at fault.

As a result, cycling deaths and injuries have risen dramatically over the years while vehicle occupant deaths have declined. We fight for maximum compensation for our clients.
