Jacksonville Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Were you injured in a bicycling accident?
Have you been injured while riding in Jacksonville? As a cyclist, you have
the same rights and responsibilities on the road as a driver, and if your
accident was caused by a driver's negligence, you have a right to
demand compensation. Bicycle accident injuries can be severe, causing
considerable pain and suffering. An experienced Jacksonville personal
injury lawyer from our firm can meet with you for a consultation.
The Law Office of Jason K.S. Porter is committed to helping accident victims
recover the maximum insurance settlement possible, and as former prosecutors,
we have the legal knowledge and litigation skill you need on your side.
A large percentage of bicycle accidents are caused by inattentive drivers
who fail to respect the cyclist's right of way. Riders have very little
protection in case of an accident, and they generally ride defensively,
but when a driver fails to check blind spots or is using a cell phone
for texting, there is little the rider can do to avoid a mishap. Cyclists
commonly suffer injuries after being run off the road, as well as being
cut off when a car makes a right turn, and the injuries are frequently
catastrophic when the automobile strikes the rider in a side-impact or
rear-end collision at an intersection.
Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. for Personal Injury Representation
Common injuries suffered in bicycle accidents include
spinal cord injury, road rash, collarbone fractures,
brain injury and broken bones. Your settlement should include the expenses of emergency
medical treatment in addition to any type of rehabilitative care you may
require. You also deserve to receive compensation for your pain and suffering
during the accident and for chronic pain you may experience in the future,
as well as for your lost income. It is not advisable to accept a settlement
from the insurance company before speaking with a Jacksonville bicycle
accident attorney from our firm, as your claim may be valuable than you
expect and you could waive your right to pursue the amount you deserve.
