Bicycle accident injuries can be life-threatening. You may have required emergency medical care, including surgery and hospitalization. On top of all this, your medical bills may continue to mount if your injuries result in permanent impairment. You should not have to face these consequences when someone else was responsible for your accident.
Our bicycle accident lawyers can help you seek financial recovery. We can investigate your personal injury case, gather evidence of negligence, and fight for you in court. While you rest, the team at Ged Lawyers can handle the legal process.
Your Accident Details Will Determine Your Potential Bicycle Accident Compensation
Ultimately, the extent of your injuries and how they affect your life will determine how much compensation you may receive. For example, more severe injuries will require more extensive medical care and may cause you to miss more work. Whether you file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, you will have to provide evidence of your losses to seek financial recovery.
Our bicycle accident attorneys can gather various documents, such as your medical records, income statements, and receipts, to support your case. Your injuries may warrant awards for:
- Current medical bills, such as hospital stays, surgery, medication, and doctor’s appointments
- Ongoing medical care, such as rehabilitative therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income from the time you have to take off work
- Reduced earning capacity if you cannot return to work or make the same income
- Scarring and disfigurement
We will make sure to account for the various ways your bicycle accident caused you financial and emotional loss. The last thing we want is for you to settle with an insurer only to foot the bill later on.
Remember that once you sign a settlement agreement, you generally cannot pursue more compensation in the future. You usually also must waive your rights to pursue legal action. We will make sure to review any settlement offers to make sure they would fairly compensate you.

Seeking Compensation After a Bicycle Accident Can Be Complicated
When a driver hits a bicyclist, their insurance coverage can help the victim access compensation, but filing a claim is not easy. An insurer may undervalue or outright deny your claim, or the driver’s coverage may not meet your accident-related expenses. You have other options for seeking financial recovery and justice, though.
You can file a personal injury lawsuit and seek a court-ordered award. Not all cases that advance to litigation make it to a trial. An insurer may settle beforehand. Either way, our attorneys will tailor a legal strategy to suit your situation. Our team can explain your legal options when you reach out to us.
You have a right to hire an attorney whether you are filing an insurance claim or a lawsuit. Insurers typically have a team of defense attorneys at their disposal. You deserve to build your case with support, and we can help you in a variety of ways.
You Do Not Have Long to File a Bicycle Accident Lawsuit
According to Florida Statutes § 95.11, you generally have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to meet this deadline, you risk having your case dismissed from court. This could cost you your last chance to seek compensation from a liable party.
Our lawyers can help you meet this deadline and streamline your case as much as we can. Still, the sooner you begin your case, the better we can protect your right to seek compensation.
Make Sure to Follow Through With Your Medical Treatment After a Bicycle Accident
Even if you think your bicycle accident injuries are not severe, make sure you get checked out by a doctor and start any needed treatment. The sooner you start getting medical care, the better your chances of making a full recovery are.
You also need medical records and bills to build your case. Your doctor’s prognosis is equally important since it can give us an idea of how much to seek for future medical care expenses.
