Bicycle Accident Injuries
Accidents involving bicyclists are increasingly prevalent in Southwest Florida where beautiful year-round weather creates ideal conditions for cycling. Motorists who text while driving, drive erratically, drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or simply drive while fatigued, are the primary reason behind devastating bicycling accidents.
If you’ve been involved in a bicycle accident, you should perform the following:
- Gather together as many receipts as possible including those from your bicycle shop
- Get multiple estimates of the costs of repairing or replacing your gear
- Take pictures of both your injuries and the damage done to your personal property
- Be sure to keep any medical receipts as they relate to your bicycle accident
Cardillo Keith Bonaquist can help you secure compensation for expensive hospital bills, damaged property, disability expenses, rehabilitation services, and more. To set up your case evaluation, feel free to contact us today online or by calling us at 239-774-2229.
