Orlando Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Fighting for the compensation you deserve
Bicycles are very popular in the Orlando area. But it only takes one negligent driver to cause a car accident that leaves a bicyclist seriously injured. Insurance companies are supposed to help, but they will protect their own interests. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced bicycle accident lawyer. The Cerasa Law Firm LLC can help.
Attorney Michael Cerasa worked for big law firms and has the experience needed to build strong cases that get results. But he is able to give clients the personal attention only a smaller firm can offer. He knows how a bicycle accident can impact your life and will fight to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Fighting for the injured in Orlando
Bicyclists are very vulnerable out on the road. A bike offers no protection when hit by a car, and the chances of coming out of these accidents uninjured are slim. Even if you are able to stand and walk after a bike accident, you should still seek medical attention as soon as possible. Not all injuries are immediately apparent, and there is a strong likelihood that you suffered internal injuries.
Your first priority after a bike accident should be recovering. A lawsuit may seem overwhelming with all you are dealing with at the moment. That’s why attorney Cerasa takes the time to learn everything he can about his clients. Once he understand your goals and needs, he can pursue them on your behalf in the courtroom.
In the confusion of a bicycle accident, it may be difficult to tell exactly what happened. The cause of a bicycle accident plays a key role in your case. Don't worry, if you do not know or can't remember the details of your accident. We can investigate for you.
There are several common causes of bicycle accidents. Most investigations start by confirming or ruling out these factors as the cause:
- The car was driving too close to the bicyclist. In Florida, cars must be at least three feet away from cyclists.
- The driver failed to yield to a bicyclist. Bicyclists almost always have the right of way.
- The driver did not use a blinker when turning, failing to notify the bicyclist they would be intercepting his or her route.
- The road was unsafe for bicyclists and did not provide adequate warning. In these cases, the city or property owner may be held liable.
To determine the cause, our legal team may track down witnesses, request footage from traffic cameras, and speak with the first responders. While we are investigating, our clients have a chance to rest and relax knowing their case is moving forward.
