Port St. Lucie Bicycle Accident

Injuried Person by Bicycle Accident Cycling on a regular basis is a great way to stay in shape, and if you do it instead of driving, you can reduce your carbon footprint while saving on gas. Despite the many advantages of cycling, though, there’s one major drawback; every time you ride alongside traffic, you run the risk of getting into a devastating accident.

Unfortunately, motorists often violate right-of-way laws and engage in distracting behaviors such as texting behind the wheel. As a result, bicycle accidents are relatively common, and since bikes provide zero protection from the force of impact, the consequences are typically catastrophic.

If you or someone in your family was struck by a negligent driver while riding a bike, contact Donaldson & Weston.

Why You Should Hire a Port St. Lucie Bicycle Accident Lawyer Right Away

There’s a lot to do in the aftermath of a serious bicycle accident, so seeking legal counsel may not necessarily be one of your priorities; however, it’s in your best interests to call an attorney as soon as possible. Here are just a few reasons why:

1. Critical Evidence May Not Be Available Indefinitely

It’s not uncommon for essential pieces of evidence to be time-sensitive. For example, if the accident was captured by a nearby surveillance camera, the owner of the footage may not preserve it. The same applies to dash cam recordings.

Unfortunately, evidence is also prone to being altered or destroyed. If the opposing party realizes you’re thinking of filing a suit, they may do whatever it takes to protect themselves—even if that means partaking in unethical behavior.

2. There Are Strict Filing Deadlines

In the state of Florida, accident victims have a limited amount of time in which to file a lawsuit. If they attempt to bring a suit after the applicable deadline has passed, the court will most likely dismiss the case.

3. It’s Easy to Jeopardize Your Claim Inadvertently

If you’re thinking about going up against the insurance adjuster alone, consider this: It’s fairly easy to make a misstep at any point in the proceedings that jeopardizes your entire case. When you hire a lawyer, your legal team will handle all correspondence with the opposing party on your behalf. As a result, you will not have to worry about making any compromising statements to the insurance adjuster that would hurt your claim.
