What should I do if I am injured in a bicycle accident?

Bicyclists are vulnerable to serious injuries on the road. Unfortunately, Florida is one of the most dangerous states in the country for bicyclists, with 135 people losing their lives in collisions between cars and bicycles in 2013. Tampa is no exception, as the metropolitan area has one of the highest rates of bicyclist fatalities in the nation.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle accident through the fault of another, you may be entitled to compensation. At the time of the accident, it is important that you call the police, seek medical attention, and gather information from the driver and any witnesses. These are important ways to preserve evidence of the accident and your injuries.

You should also call an attorney. Joyce & Reyes offers a free consultation for you to learn more about your rights. Our attorneys can answer your questions and advise you of how you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
