Bicycle Accident Injuries

When a negligent driver causes a bicycle accident, the results can be devastating. A cyclist can be left with serious and painful injuries that take time to heal and keep the cyclist away from work. Some injuries may even be permanent or fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bicycle accident caused by a negligent driver, contact a Tampa bicycle accident lawyer at the Capaz Law Firm. We can help you get medical treatment and seek compensation for your injuries.

Bicycle Accident Causes and Injuries

Bicycle accidents are often the result of a negligent driver who either ignored or did not look for cyclists before making a turn or entering traffic. Other times, aggressive, distracted or intoxicated driving is to blame. When collisions do occur, the cyclists can be left with severe injuries such as:

  • Lacerations and bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Neck, back and head injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Death
Seeking Compensation

An attorney can help you seek compensation to cover the cost of your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the extent of your injuries, this can include past and future medical bills, past and future wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
