Bicycle accidents happen in an instant due to a variety of negligent behaviors

Motorists are required to drive responsibly and pay attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, many common behaviors by drivers lead to thousands of collisions with cyclists each year. The most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI)
  • Failing to yield to bicyclists
  • “Buzzing” or side-swiping cyclists
  • Speeding
  • Failing to leave enough space between the vehicle and cyclist when passing
  • Reckless driving

In any of these situations, serious injuries and even death can occur. We’re ready to investigate your case and develop a strong strategy to help you recover the damages you deserve.

Understanding all types of lawsuits stemming from bicycle accidents

In addition to the above causes of action, you may also be able to pursue additional causes of action depending on the circumstances of your case. Our attorneys have handled several products liability cases against bicycle manufacturers for accidents caused by defective or unreasonably dangerous bicycle parts.

Road conditions may also contribute to bicycle accidents. If roads and sidewalks are improperly maintained or repaired, you may be entitled to compensation from the applicable state agency responsible for such maintenance. Regardless of how your accident occurred, we take the time to fully investigate your claims and gather witness testimony and evidence to support your case.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.
