Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
Bike riding is an excellent form of exercise and a fun activity to do with others. Cycling can also be much more than just a recreational activity; it can be a relatively inexpensive and environmentally friendly way to commute to work and other places where you need to go. More people are electing to bike ride to work these days, especially in Weeki Wachee where the weather is enjoyable pretty much year-round.
Bicyclists must share the roads with other vehicles, including cars, truck, and SUVs. Driver must pay attention to avoid causing an unnecessary accident and harming a cyclist. Bike riders lack the same protections as a driver of a motor vehicle, so when they are struck by a much heavier automobile, they can easily be killed or suffer severe injuries.
