Bicycle-Versus-Car Accidents Occur Regularly Along the Space Coast
In Melbourne, greater Brevard County, and elsewhere along the Space Coast, our personal injury practice regularly hears about bicyclists hit by cars. Unfortunately, this is a relatively common way that cyclists suffer serious and even life-threatening injuries in this area. The latest data available from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles shows there were more than 230 cyclists hit by motor vehicles in Brevard County in 2018. Of these cyclists, 217 required medical attention, and five passed away.
This high rate of injury is typical in this type of accident. Cyclists have virtually no protection from the impacts they suffer after being hit by a car–with the vehicle, with the ground, and with other objects. Helmets help but cannot prevent all head injuries.
Although some cyclists do not suffer life-altering injuries in their accident, many others do. They may have spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, limb amputations, or other devastating injuries. This type of injury could mean weeks in the hospital or a rehabilitation facility, months out of work, never returning to their previous job, ongoing care and support, or other expenses and losses.
The goal of pursuing a case against the at-fault motorist is to hold them accountable and recover a payout that compensates you for your financial damages.
As a full-service law firm that helps clients navigate almost any type of legal situation, Bogin, Munns & Munns can help you do just that. A Melbourne bicycle accident lawyer from our Melbourne office may be able to seek financial recovery for you while you continue to worry only about getting better. Call (321) 254-3939 to learn if you qualify.

Deadlines Apply to Filing a Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Suit
When settlement negotiations are not successful, and we cannot reach an agreement with the insurance company about your case, we may need to file a Brevard County civil lawsuit on your behalf. We generally have only a limited time to file the paperwork and name the driver who struck you as a defendant in a lawsuit. Per Florida Statutes 95.11, this is four years in most cases.
In some cases, such as when we need to pursue a wrongful death case, there may be significantly less time to take legal action. At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we can determine the time limit that applies in your case during your free accident consultation.
