Although bicyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists on the streets of Florida, many drivers remain unaware of the safety precautions that should be taken, or of the potential danger their negligence poses to bicyclists. Many people are not taught to respect the rights of bicyclists when sharing the road, and the careless decisions made by these drivers could easily result in a bicycle accident. Unfortunately, the injuries a bicyclist can suffer in a collision with a motor vehicle can be disastrous.
Potential Dangers of Bike Riding in Miami-Dade
There are plenty of opportunities for a personal injury accident when a negligent motor vehicle driver is involved. Common careless or reckless driving mistakes like speeding, turning without a signal, running traffic lights, fast braking or acceleration and others can quickly result in serious injury for the bicyclist involved. Even at seemingly slower speeds of 25mph, a collision between a bicyclists and a motor vehicle would surely cause broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis or death. The costs related to treatment and recovery for these types of injuries can quickly become a problem as medical bills pile up, and the consequences can be even worse if the injury victim is unable to continue to work as a result.
