Injuries Caused by Bicycle Accidents
A bicycle wreck can cause more than just physical damage. Long-term mental health issues can affect a bicycle accident victim. Common injuries include:
- Brain damage and concussion
- Spine injury
- Broken bones
In many accidents, you might not realize you have a serious injury because it can take days for symptoms to arise. Bicycle accident victims can spend days or even weeks in a hospital immediately following their accident. This doesn’t include the ongoing treatment and recovery for their injuries.

Common Causes of Florida Bicycle Accidents
Traffic in Florida can be difficult to dodge in the first place. On a bike, it can be near impossible and even dangerous.
Distracted drivers are unprepared when they encounter cyclists on the road or in the parking lot. This is why they often end up failing to break or turn in time. Some causes of the most typical Florida bicycle accidents are:
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving, including road rage and speeding
- Not obeying traffic signage or laws
- Faulty vehicles or parts
Our bicycle accident lawyers are dedicated to providing justice for crash victims. We will go the distance through trial to fight for the compensation you deserve. Contact us for a free case evaluation and to begin the bicycle accident claim process.
Florida bicycle injuries can be incredibly serious. They may require the victim to pay large hospital bills, physical therapy and even counseling. It’s common for victims to face PTSD and fear picking up their bike again. Healing from a crash injury can lead to time missed from work, loss of ability to perform job duties or even loss of employment. Financial compensation can ease the physical and mental burdens after an accident.
At Dennis Hernandez & Associates, we consider the emotional and financial repercussions of your bicycle accident as well as the physical. By understanding the full effect of your bike accident, we can better calculate the true cost of your injuries.
Why You Need a Florida Accident Lawyer
After a bike accident, the insurance company is not your friend. The defense will begin to build a case against you, and it will use anything it can find to undermine the state of your injuries.
You need the guidance and experience of a personal injury law firm to collect evidence and prove negligence. We know how to combat the insurance company to get the compensation you deserve.
