Finding justice for injured bicycle accident victims
When a bicyclist is hit by a vehicle, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic and life-changing. Pursuing compensation for the losses related to your injuries is the only way to ensure that you receive the medical care and treatment you deserve, without suffering financially.
We have successfully recovered compensation for Ft. Lauderdale bicycle accident victims who have suffered a wide range of injuries, including:
- Broken bones: One of the most common injuries resulting from bicycle accidents, broken bones can be incredibly painful. In some cases, broken bone victims must undergo physical therapy to regain full range of movement after the break has healed. We ensure that any compensation we pursue addresses ongoing care and any other medical treatment necessary.
- Head and neck injuries: Concussions, contusions and neck sprains are common occurrences during bicycle accidents. Whether you have suffered a head injury or a neck injury, we work to recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
- Brain injuries: More serious head trauma can lead to lasting brain injuries. Victims of traumatic brain injuries may experience memory loss or partial paralysis. In brain injury cases, we aggressively pursue the compensation the victim needs to cover the costs of medical care, ongoing treatment and other losses.
- Spinal cord injuries: Bicyclists who are struck by a vehicle are exposed to a tremendous amount of force, which may lead to spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries can vary from minor to severe; the most serious cases leading to the victim’s loss of motor function in some or all of their limbs. We explore every possible legal avenue to pursue the compensation spinal cord injury victims need to put their lives back together.
- Disfigurement: Road rash is an unfortunately common result of bicycle accidents. When the victim slides across pavement or gravel, their skin experiences severe trauma. In the most serious cases of road rash, disfigurement or heavy scarring may occur. We pursue the compensation disfigurement victims need to cover all medical costs, including plastic surgery expenses.
- Loss of life: The most tragic bicycle accidents lead to the victim’s death. In these unfortunate cases, we assist the victim’s family in pursuing justice for their losses in an effort to shield them from unnecessary financial and emotional harm.
