Can I sue if I am injured in a bicycle accident?Return to Video Blogs
Cars and bicycles. They enjoy a peaceful co-existence on South Florida roadways most of the time, but bicyclists will tell you drivers aren’t always as careful as they should be when it comes to the folks on two wheels, so if you are injured in a bicycle accident, can you sue? Personal injury attorney Scott Smith says yes. Scott says if there was negligence on the part of the at-fault driver, a bicyclist has the same rights and is entitled to the same compensation as anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident.
You can make a recovery for your past medical expenses, your future medical expenses, any lost wages or loss of future earning capacity, as well as what we call the intangible damages, that being pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, and an inconvenience.
