As a cyclist traveling in and around town during traffic, it is important to take precautions to avoid bicycle accidents and injury.With more than 500,000 bike accident victims admitted to the ER each year, it is no secret that riding a bike can be dangerous. Avoid biking during certain times of day, if possible, dawn and dusk as they are the hardest times for drivers to see you. Also, using headlights, reflectors, or bright colored clothing can help you stay seen and avoid bicycle accidents.

Rights of the Cyclist
Avoiding Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents often result in very serious injuries and even death. In Florida, bicycle riders are twice as likely to get into a fatal accident than in any other state in the country. When your bicycle accident is the result of a preventable act or someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to recover for your injuries.
Under Florida law, cyclists have the same rights as motorists when seeking damages for personal injury and property damage. Cyclists, just like pedestrians and auto drivers and passengers can recover restitution from insurance companies.
