Orange County Had Hundreds of Bicycle-Versus-Vehicle Accidents in 2022

The weather in Orange County and elsewhere in Central Florida lends itself to a variety of outdoor activities. Whether you ride your bicycle for exercise, recreation, or transportation, you are not alone. Many pedestrians, cyclists, roller-skaters, and others share the roads with drivers, even if it is only to cross the street at an intersection.

Still, many drivers do not pay enough attention to cyclists and others nearby. When a collision occurs, it is usually the cyclist who suffers severe injuries. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in 2022 alone, there were 444 bicycle accidents, 415 injuries, and 14 cyclist fatalities in Orange County, Florida.

Although some of the injuries were minor, others were significant. It is possible to suffer many types of catastrophic, impairing, and life-altering injuries when your bicycle is hit by a car. This could include:

  • Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken bones
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Facial injuries, including broken bones and lacerations
  • Internal injuries.
  • Our team includes personal injury attorneys who build cases based on a driver’s negligence, leading to this type of collision and injuries. We may be able to help you prove your case and hold the driver accountable. We are a full-service law firm that covers virtually the full spectrum of Florida practice areas, including bicycle accident cases. You can call now to speak with someone from the Orlando office of Bogin, Munns & Munns about your case.

Recovering Compensation for Your Related Losses and Expenses

When we accept a case, the team from Bogin, Munns & Munns goes to work not only to hold the at-fault driver accountable, but also to recover the money our client needs to pay medical bills, repair his or her bicycle, cover missed income, and more. As part of this, we will document the expenses our client incurred and value their intangible losses. This could include:

  • Injury Treatment, Care, and Related Medical Expenses: We’ll seek all medical costs from emergency care to long-term treatments such as surgeries, physical therapy, medications, and any necessary medical equipment. This also includes future medical expenses if ongoing care is needed.
  • Missed Wages and Lost Benefits: Compensates for the income and benefits lost during your recovery period. This includes salaries, wages, bonuses, and other employment benefits you would have earned if not for the injury.
  • Diminished Earning Capacity: If your injuries impact your ability to work at the same level as before the accident, you can claim compensation for a reduced earning potential over your lifetime.
  • Property Damages, Including Bicycle Repairs: Reimbursement for the repair or replacement of your bicycle and any other personal property damaged in the accident.
  • Loss of Services: Compensation for services you can no longer perform due to your injuries, which may require hiring someone else, such as household cleaning, lawn maintenance, or childcare.
  • Out-of-Pocket Expenses: Covers costs directly related to the accident that you’ve had to pay out of pocket, such as travel expenses to medical appointments, parking fees at hospitals, and over-the-counter medication costs.
  • Pain and Suffering Damages: Acknowledges the physical pain and emotional distress you have endured because of the accident. This includes compensation for ongoing discomfort, mental anguish, and loss of quality of life.
  • Other Non-Economic Losses: Includes damages for loss of companionship, emotional support, and enjoyment of life activities that you cannot partake in as a result of the accident.

If your loved one died when a car struck him or her, Florida Statutes 768.21 may allow you to file a wrongful death action for additional damages. We can help you navigate this process if you meet the criteria.

Bike Accidents Are Subject to a Strict Statute of Limitations

It is important that you contact us as soon as you can following your bicycle accident. Although we have two years to file your lawsuit per Florida Statutes § 95.11, this clock begins running on the date of your accident (or the date of death in a wrongful death case). Don’t wait until the last minute, as this could cause you to lose valuable compensation for your losses.

At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we urge you to consult with us as soon as possible after your accident. Our team can help ensure that your rights are protected and that you take the necessary legal steps within the required timeframe.
