Fort Myers Bicycle Accident Law Firm Helping Victims Obtain Justice

Bicyclists have a right to be on the road, but, unfortunately, some motorists do not take sufficient precautions to watch out for bicyclists or give them room to properly share the road. As a result, accidents between vehicles and bicycles often produce disastrous outcomes, especially for the bicyclist, who has little or no protection against the much larger and heavier vehicle. Aside from a helmet, a bicycle offers no vehicle frame or other surface that can protect its rider if it is struck by a vehicle.

There is also nothing to prevent the bicyclist from being thrown from the bicycle, whereas an occupant of a vehicle typically enjoys safety features such as seatbelts, child restraint seats, and airbags. When this type of unthinkable accident occurs, and severe injuries or even death results, our Fort Myers injury bicycle accident attorneys are here to help. Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. can guide you through those options to help you recover the maximum possible damages in your claim. Call Randall L. Spivey, today at (888) 477-4839 for a free consultation. 

Compensation for Bike Accident Victims

Randall L. Spivey represents adults and children who have been injured or killed in all types of bicycle accident injury cases and seek to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions through legal liability and financial responsibility for the victim’s losses. Compensation obtained through a personal injury or wrongful death action stemming from a bicycle accident can be used to defray medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, long-term care expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. While financial compensation cannot replace the loss of a loved one or rectify a serious injury that permanently impacts a person’s life, it can help an accident victim and his or her family cope with their tragedy and handle their stress levels.

Motor vehicles often do not properly yield to bicycles traveling on the streets or sidewalks, resulting in serious injuries or even death to the rider. Having an experienced Fort Myers injury law firm on your side is critical to recovering the medical expenses, mental anguish, pain and suffering, and loss of earnings that you deserve.
