    Dealing With Car Insurance Companies

    Though bicycle accidents can happen between two bicyclists or a pedestrian, often bicyclist accidents involve automobiles. Those injured in a bicycle accident in Pasco County should be aware that Florida is a fault insurance state. Under a fault insurance law, those injured in accidents involving motor vehicles may file an insurance claim with their own insurance company or against the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

    State Regulations on Bicyclists

    Florida Statutes §316.2065 outlines Florida’s bicycle regulations. These regulations apply to any person “propelling a vehicle by human power.” All of the rights and duties imposed on drivers of motor vehicles are also imposed on bicyclists as well. The following are a list of some of the regulations that bicyclists in Pasco County must adhere to:

    • A bicycle cannot carry more people at one time than the amount it is designed for – except for children securely attached to a backpack or sling
    • A bicyclist cannot ride on any part of the bike other than the attached seat
    • Bicycle riders under 16 years old must wear a helmet
    • Bicyclists moving slower than normal speed must use the bicycle lane, or if there is no designated bicycle lane, they must ride as close as possible to the right-hand curb.

    Recovery Limitations for Bicycle Accidents in Pasco County

    Injured cyclists in Pasco County may file a personal injury claim within four years of the accident. Failure to file within the four-year statute of limitations could result in waiving the right to sue and recover damages in court. Plaintiffs may seek economic, noneconomic, property, and punitive damages that result from the bicycle accident.

    These damages could be reduced if the plaintiff contributed to the cause of the accident. Florida follows the pure comparative fault rule, which states that a plaintiff may still recover even if they are 99 percent at fault, but their recovery would be reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, if the plaintiff is 50 percent at fault for causing the bicycle accident, they could still recover compensation, but their overall damages would be reduced by 50 percent.

    How a Pasco County Bicycle Accident Attorney Could Help

    If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you might be juggling a lot of responsibilities. It could be overwhelming to heal from your injuries, take care of yourself and your family, and pursue compensation at the same time. A Pasco County bicycle accident lawyer could help lighten the load and help you handle stressful negotiations, settlements, and litigation. To start exploring your options, call now.
