Hobe Sound Bicycle Accident Lawyers

When drivers fail to pay attention, it is often those in traffic around them who suffer the most. And while other drivers and passengers are certainly at risk of getting hurt in a distracted driving accident, pedestrians and cyclists are especially vulnerable to serious injuries and death because they have little to no protection from the force of impact.

Pedestrians can reduce the risk of getting hurt in a devastating wreck by using sidewalks and crosswalks. Cyclists, on the other hand, often have no choice but to ride alongside fast-moving traffic.

If you or someone you love was hurt in a bicycle accident in Florida, contact Donaldson & Weston. Our strategic personal injury lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all potentially liable parties. We will then gather the evidence needed to prove both fault and damages.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Since bicycle accidents tend to result in severe injuries, the damages can add up fast. Medical bills and lost income alone can equate to a small fortune. When it comes to determining the total value of your claim, though, the costs associated with treating your injuries are only one contributing factor.

Other factors that may affect how much your case is worth include:

  • Relevant laws;

  • Applicable damages caps;

  • The number of defendants and their total available insurance coverage;

  • The circumstances of the accident;

  • The strength of any evidence of fault;

  • The insurance adjuster’s willingness to cooperate;

  • Whether you were partially at fault; and

  • Whether the case warrants a punitive award.

At Donaldson & Weston, we will attempt to determine how much your case is worth by keeping the above factors in mind while investigating the accident. We will also track the costs associated with treating your injuries from day one, and we may be able to help you seek compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

Pursuing non-economic damages can be challenging without the assistance of an attorney. We might advise you to keep a daily journal or to photograph any visible wounds as they progress. We will use these kinds of records to estimate a fair amount for pain and suffering when calculating the value of your claim.
