Anyone who rides a bike around the streets and designated bicycle lanes of Miami knows that it can be a truly harrowing experience. You are sharing the road with sizable vehicles rushing through heavy traffic, and your feeling of vulnerability is amplified by the fact that you are not protected by a metal shell. As such, you would probably not be surprised to learn that South Florida is a hot spot for bicycle accidents. According to a South Florida Sun-Sentinel article published on March 3, 2020, several municipalities in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties fall far below the statewide average of 4.8 when cyclists ranked them on a scale of 1 to 10. 

Though you cannot always avoid bike collisions that are caused by negligent motorists, you can pursue the responsible driver for compensation. Trust a Miami bicycle accidents attorney to handle the details, but some basics on the risks and your rights may be useful.

Extreme Risks Involved with Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle injuries are common across the world, and despite regulations and rules regarding bike safety, it does not appear that accidents have lessened. A recent case in Ireland is an example of how a cyclist can fight for his or her rights and obtain the compensation deserved following an accident. While not all cyclists have a case, if a bicycle accident was caused by another motorist, it may be wise to consider some type of personal injury lawsuit. This could help cover medical fees along with any other expenses related to the accident.
