Bicycle Accident Lawyer
South Florida is home to great weather and many tourists and regular rider enthusiasts who enjoy the freedom and exercise of traversing our cities by pedaling. Pedestrians and bicyclists are at risk for serious injury whenever a car vs. bicycle collision occurs because they often lack any sort of protective equipment to cushion a blow, or lessen the severity of an impact. With such devastating injuries, it is wise to schedule a free consultation with a bicycle accident attorney, as soon as it is possible.
