Can I still bring a Florida lawsuit against the driver if I was doing something I was not supposed to while riding my bicycle?

When it comes to accidents in Florida, we work under the concept of comparative negligence, so when determining the amount of fault divided between multiple parties it works on a percentage. Even if a bicyclist was partially at fault, 50% at fault, or 90% at fault for an accident, there's still going to be some leftover fault on the other party, so it's always a good idea to preserve all the evidence in the case so we can look at everything and you can still have a case even if you are partially responsible for the accident.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
