Florida Bicycle Accident FAQs

Even before you hire an attorney to help you receive compensation for your auto accident injuries, there are steps you can take to help any future claim you may have.


We've outlined some steps you should take if you are injured in a bicycle accident.

What steps should you take if you are injured in a bicycle accident in Florida?

Insurance adjusters are not your representatives. It is their job to try to pay as little as possible on behalf of the insurance company for each claim. Without speaking to counsel first, you might leave out pertinent information or mischaracterize something that could hurt your claim.


Before you speak to an insurance adjuster about your bike accident claim, read this.

If you've been injured at all in a bike accident, you should at least get a medical evaluation so that your ailments can be documented in a medical report. If you think your pain is not that bad, don't forego an exam, it could turn out to be much more serious later and failing to seek attention early can reflect poorly on your injury case.

Should you go to the hospital after getting into a bicycle accident?

Do you even need a bicycle accident attorney?

Not every bike accident claim requires the use of an attorney. Claims that involve only personal property damage can probably be settled on your own. However, it doesn't hurt to consult with an attorney. You need to protect yourself in case injuries manifest later. We offer free bike accident consultations and we'll help you find the right attorney even if we can't take your case.

If An Injury Does Not Manifest Until Later, What Are My Options for Filing a Claim?

If you have immediately apparent injuries or injuries that manifest later due to the bike accident, then not seeking immediate medical attention will most likely impact your case negatively. 

A common occurrence is when a victim of an bicycle accident has seemingly minor injuries and they can feel fine after the accident. Instead of taking the ambulance to the hospital, they get a ride home. Later on, however, the pain manifests. It could be that night, or days later.


Once the adrenaline from the accident wears off and your body starts to feel pain, you might realize you have a claim for auto accident damages in Florida.  It is important to seek medical attention as soon as pain manifests if you haven't already been treated.


When seeking medical attention, it is important to tell your doctor that you have been injured in an auto accident and that the accident is listed as a cause of the pain. Medical providers and insurance companies use specific coding when treating injuries and auto accident victims tend to receive similar types of care.


So if you have sustained a back injury, neck injury, or other type of injury in an auto accident, it is important that the physician notes that in your medical records.
