No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Whether you are commuting to work in downtown Pensacola or hitting the myriad of off-road trails across the state, biking is an increasingly popular way to get around in Florida More bicycles, unfortunately, means more bicycle accidents.

Florida laws are designed to protect both bicyclists and drivers by ensuring that they share the road safely. Both are generally expected to act in a reasonably safe manner and are likely to be liable for any accidents caused by their failure to do so. Your Pensacola bicycle accident lawyer will know what laws apply to your case and how a violation could potentially increase your damages.
Many bicycle accident cases are brought by bike riders who are injured in collisions with cars, alleging that the driver was to blame for the crash. There are several other additional scenarios, however, including those in which the cyclist or a third party is liable for the collision.
