It is common to see bicyclists on the road because of the beautiful weather in Palm Bay, FL, and the rest of Central Florida. The only problem is that cyclists riding in the bike lanes and following the Florida traffic laws may be seriously injured by motor vehicles that run into them in Brevard County.

When you enlist a bicycle accident lawyer from our legal team, our knowledgeable attorney will provide you sound legal advice, investigate the cause of your collision, and work diligently to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and the medical treatment.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Brevard County
In Florida, bicyclists follow the same general traffic laws and have the same rights-of-way as drivers of motor vehicles. In Brevard County, bicyclists are everywhere riding bikes throughout Central Florida. Unfortunately, cell phones, text messaging, and other distractions while driving can result in many drivers being unaware of a cyclist’s right of way and a lack of attention for their presence on the roads.
As a result, hundreds of bicyclists suffer serious injury or death each year after being hit by a motor vehicle. Collisions involving a Palm Bay, FL, bicycle in a bike lane can result in very serious injuries and thoroughly expensive medical bills.

Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries
Cyclists have little protection in an accident, especially one that involves a moving vehicle. It is much like a pedestrian crossing an intersection because they are completely exposed to the impact of the car. When a motorist strikes a bicycle rider, the serious consequences can be very severe.
When a bicyclist is out for a ride on the roads in Central Florida, that individual is completely open to the possibility of a serious accident with a car. The vehicle itself provides some level of protection to the motorist, but the bicycle rider has no protection like drivers of cars do. Without any barrier between the rider and the other vehicles or road, a cyclist is put in a very dangerous situation and may incur severe damages. Some of the most common bicycle accident injuries include:
- road rash
- broken bones
- traumatic brain injury
- spinal cord injuries
- internal bleeding
- organ damage
These injuries can result in lasting or permanent disfigurement or disability and deserve compensation for any immediate and future damages.
