Palm Beach Gardens Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bike Handlebar and Sunset Cycling is the perfect way to take in the beauty of the Sunshine State. Florida has miles upon miles of breathtaking bike trails to explore, and its temperate weather means residents and tourists alike can ride 12 months out of the year.

At the end of the day, though, riding is not without risks. It may seem like one of the safer activities to do in Florida, especially when you consider the thrilling water sports offered along the coast, but cycling is inherently dangerous.

Even if you don adequate gear and make it a point to ride at a speed that is safe for the conditions, you have no control over the other cyclists, skateboarders, and pedestrians on the trails around you. And if you must ride alongside moving traffic at any point, you’re at an even greater risk of serious injury and even death. After all, bikes are no match for motor vehicles in the event of a collision.

If you were hurt in a bicycle accident with a reckless driver, contact Donaldson & Weston. Our personal injury attorneys know how a serious accident can cause considerable stress and trauma for our clients and their families. We will do everything we can to help you put the pieces back together. Call 561-299-3999 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of the leading bicycle accident lawyers in Palm Beach Gardens.

How to Prove Liability in a Bicycle Accident Claim

Proving liability is the foundation of every successful bicycle accident claim. Before you can recover compensation for the damages you have incurred, you must demonstrate how the party named in the claim was at fault for the incident. Although this party is often a motorist, it could also be:

  • Another cyclist;
  • The bike manufacturer;
  • The vehicle manufacturer; or
  • The local municipality responsible for maintaining the roads.

The strongest evidence of fault will depend on the circumstances of the accident. In general, though, evidence that can contribute to your claim might include:

  • Photographs of the scene including images that document the road conditions and flow of traffic;
  • Eyewitness testimony;
  • The official police report;
  • Dash cam footage;
  • Recordings from nearby surveillance cameras;
  • Black box data;
  • Cell phone records;
  • The results of any chemical tests conducted at the scene; and
  • Statements from accident reconstruction experts.

Gathering the kinds of evidence listed above is a lot of work, but you won’t have to worry about any of it if you turn to Donaldson & Weston. We will use all the resources at our disposal to determine precisely what happened and gather evidence while you focus on your health.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
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. - M.P.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
★★★★★
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. - S.C.
