Bicycles In Florida – Do I Have A Personal Injury Case If I Get Hit?
Today’s topic is “bicycles”. The question becomes if I am riding a bike or I am walking with a bike and I get hit, do I have a case?
The answer is probably, but it depends on if you are at fault or you are not at fault. So, if you are walking across the street and a busy intersection and it is not in a crosswalk, you are probably at fault and thus there would not be a case (or you would have some comparative negligence). Generally, if you are on a bicycle and you are following the rules of the road and you get hit then you will most likely have a case. Now, there are a lot of other issues that are involved with a bicycle (such as PIP and No-Fault Insurance – which we have talked about in prior videos) but the general answer is if I get hit, yes you have a case!
