Florida E-Bike Accident Attorney
E-bikes have gained popularity in cities and regions throughout Florida thanks to the unique benefits they offer riders. E-bikes, or electric bicycles, are bicycles that have been equipped with electric motors. This adds a degree of propulsion that traditional bicycles don’t offer. Thus, e-bikes combine many of the benefits of bicycles and motor vehicles.
That said, like traditional bicycles, e-bikes are not enclosed vehicles. Unlike a car, truck, or van, an e-bike does not have a metal frame protecting a rider from harm when collisions occur. It also typically doesn’t come with safety features like airbags and seatbelts.
That means riders involved in e-bike accidents are quite vulnerable. If you’ve been harmed in an accident while riding an e-bike, your injuries are likely quite serious and may require costly treatment.
Was your accident the result of another party’s actions or carelessness? If so, review your case with a Florida e-bike accident attorney at Colson Hicks Eidson. We will review the details of the case and explain whether you have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit seeking financial compensation for your losses.
SEEKING COMPENSATION AFTER A FLORIDA E-BIKE ACCIDENT: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The consequences of being harmed in an e-bike accident can affect your life in numerous ways. Again, treatment for your injuries will likely be expensive. Your injuries may also be serious enough to prevent you from returning to work. They may even render you permanently unable to care for yourself without assistance.
You deserve compensation for such losses if your accident occurred because someone was negligent. When you know whose negligence caused your accident, you may seek compensation by filing a claim to collect from their insurance.
The experts at our Florida e-bike accident law firm can assist you in pursuing the compensation you deserve by:
- Investigating your case to determine who the negligent party is
- Gathering evidence of negligence
- Filing a claim and determining how much it may be worth based on the extent and severity of your losses/damages
- Negotiating for a fair settlement on your behalf if the insurance company’s first offers are too low
- Allowing you to focus on your recovery
HOW FLORIDA E-BIKE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN
Negligent motorists are often to blame when e-bike accidents occur in our state. Drivers can cause accidents by:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving while drowsy
- Paying attention to their phones instead of the road
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Not obeying traffic signals
E-bike accidents may also occur when the designers and manufacturers of these vehicles are careless. For example, you may have been harmed in a Florida e-bike accident if the manufacturer of your bike overlooked a defect.
