Did you know that Florida ranks #1 for bicycle accidents?
This is because of people who drive and strike bike riders without looking while texting on their phones, or applying makeup at the same time they are driving.
There are two sides to this story, however. We also had biker riders who take over the road with their pack and pay no attention to red lights. In Miami-Dade County alone the local police have been giving tickets and warnings for this offense.
If you or a family member has ever been involved in a bicycle accident, be sure to move to the side of the road, if possible, for safety. Take photos of the accident, including the license plate of the car/vehicle that struck you. If a limb or body part has been severed, do not try to move the bicyclist, and try to block off the area and have traffic rerouted.
Report the accident to the local police, if deemed necessary, especially if injured. Call your insurance company and let them know the accident occurred.
Do not speak to the person who hit you, or to their insurance company or legal counsel.
