Studies conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation show that Florida's bicycle fatality rate is consistently the highest or one of the highest in the nation.  The leading theory attempting to explain this phenomenon points to Florida's sunny climate, millions of tourists, urban sprawl and low investment in safety capital.

Unbeknownst to cyclists, bike lanes sometimes place riders in an even more dangerous situation.  Bike lanes interfere with motor vehicles and the normal flow of traffic.  Nonetheless, car drivers must keep a safe distance away from bicyclists.   

Bicycle accident victims can sustain serious bodily injuries or death.  Due to the severity of injuries, you will need an experienced, knowledgeable and skillful attorney to represent your interests.
