Bicycle Accidents in Miami Springs, FL

Miami Springs is a city in Miami-Dade County and was founded by the Father of Naval Aviation, Glenn Hammond Curtiss in the 1920s. The area was originally called Country Club Estates and was one of several initial planned communities in the state. Like some surrounding areas, Miami Springs is meant to have a particular architectural style—the Pueblo Revival, which is predominantly used in New Mexico and throughout the southwest of the U.S.

The city was incorporated in 1926 and shortly after, renamed at a local freshwater spring. As of 2018, the estimated population of Miami Springs is more than 14,300 people within 3 square miles. The Miami International Airport is located just south of the city, and throughout the city’s life, it has been connected with the aviation industry. The bankruptcy of Eastern Airlines and Pan American World Airways caused economic distress in the area.

In many ways, Miami Springs can feel like a small town instead of being located in a major metropolitan area. Children and adults often feel free and safe in riding their bikes. Yet, bicycle-vehicle collisions do happen as well as other types of bicycle accidents.

After being hurt or losing a loved one in a bike accident you believe was someone else’s fault, contact Gerson & Schwartz P.A. to speak with an experienced bicycle accident attorney in Miami Springs. We will listen to your story, ask pertinent questions, and advise you of your options.

Common Causes of Bike Accidents

Every year in Florida, thousands of lives are impacted by bicycle accidents. These lead to hundreds of injuries as well as fatalities. When these accidents, injuries, and deaths are the result of another person or business’s careless, reckless, or intentional misconduct, then it is important for the victims to speak with a Miami Springs bicycle accident lawyer.

At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we have represented accident and injury victims for over 48 years. We have handled all types of bicycle accident claims, including those arising from:

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued or drowsy driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Unprotected left turns
  • Right turns in front of cyclists
  • Improper passing
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Driving without lights at dawn or dusk
  • Opening a vehicle door in a cyclist’s path

After you or a loved one suffer harm in a bicycle accident, contact us as soon as possible. We will perform a thorough and independent investigation into the accident. We will determine what happened and why. This will lead us toward you is not only directly at fault, but also who is liable for compensating you for your injuries.

Miami Springs Bicycle Accident Compensation

If you were injured in a bike accident caused by someone else, then through a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim, you can demand compensation for your:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Reduced Earning Potential
  • Loss of Normal Life
  • Loss of Consortium
Were You on a Rented Bike?

If you were on a rented Citi bike, Lime bike, or SPIN bike, let us know immediately. We will look into whether your accident had anything to do with a bike defect, lack of maintenance on the bike, lack of safety and user training, or some other element controlled by the business.

Our Miami Springs bicycle accident attorneys have successfully handled cases involving rental bikes before. These bikes are often heavily and inappropriately used as well as poorly maintained. Your accident and injuries may be a result of a defect or the bike malfunctioning.

Was Your Child Involved in a Bicycle Accident?

You want your child to ride their bike. You want them to have fun, be able to visit with nearby friends, and be active and healthy. But when your child is in a serious bike accident, this can have long-term consequences for their life. Serious or catastrophic injuries could result in a physical disability at an early age—one that could impact their ability to lead a normal life, participate in certain hobbies, and to enter certain professions. Your child may sustain a disfigurement, which will negatively affect their social life and romantic prospects as an adult.

We take all of this into consideration when we fight for compensation for a minor injured in a bike crash.
