Miami Bicycle Accident Statistics

The overall statistics regarding Florida bicycle accidents are quite troubling to say the least. For instance, on a yearly basis, there are more than 4,500 bicycle crashes somewhere in Florida. In addition, more than 4,200 bicyclists are injured in these accidents, and this number includes both those steering the bicycles and bicycle passengers. Finally, more than 100 people are killed annually in Florida bicycle accidents.

When these statistics are broken down further, the results are even more startling. More than 12 Florida bicycle accidents take place every day, and more than 11 people are injured for the same reason. Finally, at least two people every week are killed in Florida bicycle accidents, and the numbers have largely held steady in recent years.

Common Injuries Resulting from Florida Bicycle Accidents

Approximately 90 percent of Florida bicycle accidents involve a bicycle colliding with a larger vehicle. Therefore, bicyclists are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to the results of these accidents, as they are completely exposed both to the body of the vehicle that hit them and the concrete below. Common injuries from Florida bicycle accidents include broken bones, sprains, spinal trauma and traumatic brain injuries, even if the bicyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Ultimately, if you or someone you love has been harmed in a Florida bicycle accident, it’s likely that you are suffering. Rather than attempt to take on the prospect of a Florida personal injury lawsuit by yourself, you need the help of an experienced Florida bicycle accident lawyer.
