Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents in Lecanto, Florida

Bicycle and pedestrian accidents are not uncommon in Lecanto. That's because Florida ranks #1 in the country for pedestrian fatalities and #3 for bicycle fatalities. While bicyclists and pedestrians (including walkers, runners, joggers, skateboarders, scooter riders, etc) can sometimes behave erratically or distracted, more often accidents are the fault of drivers who are:

  • Driving distracted (texting, etc)
  • Driving recklessly or speeding
  • Drunk driving

Poorly designed intersections and road construction also play a role, and it may surprise you to know that one in every five accidents happens in a parking lot! One of the major reasons behind this is the false sense of security people have in these confined spaces.

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Lecanto Bicycle & Pedestrian Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

While it is typically assumed that pedestrians always have the right of way, that's not always the case. Florida is among the one-third of the United States that follow comparative negligence, which means that fault is shared proportionately based on the accident scenario. For example, say a pedestrian was hit while jaywalking by a speeding driver. In this case, both parties were breaking the law. Of course, this does not mean the pedestrian cannot seek compensation for injuries; it just means it may be reduced since they share some of the blame.

Bicycle accidents generally follow the same guidelines, but with other legal considerations. That's because in Florida, a bicycle is considered to be a “vehicle” just like a car, and so cyclists must follow the rules of the road. For collisions occurring at intersections, which are some of the most common bicycle accidents, fault is usually determined by who had the right of way.

At Lowman Law Firm, we believe drivers need to be most aware on the road, as bicyclists and pedestrians are much more vulnerable than the motorists protected by their vehicle. So, regardless of fault, we will work with you to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
