Florida Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Protecting Fort Myers roadways for bikers and pedestrians
Pedestrians and bikers have no protection when a car barrels down on them, and the results are often catastrophic. Florida bike accident lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC hold drivers liable for the damage they inflict when they hit a walker, jogger or biker using the roadway, bike lane or sidewalk. Founded in 1995, Fort Myers personal injury law firm Viles & Beckman, LLC has earned its reputation as a formidable adversary in settlement negotiations and trial. Learn how we can get you the compensation you deserve.
Maximizing compensation for severe injuries
Getting hit by a car usually causes serious, sometimes fatal, injuries such as:
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Crush injuries
Our aggressive Florida bike accident lawyers pursue the maximum money damages available — including compensation for medical bills, future treatments, lost income, diminished earning capacity, disability and disfigurement. We also file wrongful death claims on behalf of families whose loved ones were killed by motorists.
After hitting a pedestrian, the driver has a duty to remain at the scene and to render medical assistance if able or call for help. A driver may try to escape responsibility if there are no witnesses besides an unconscious pedestrian. Drunk or high motorists may flee to avoid the additional charges for DUI or drug possession.
Many hit-and-run drivers are caught. However, you have options even if the absconding motorist is never found. Our team determines whether other parties contributed to the accident and we aggressively seek damages from them. You are also entitled to payment from your own no-fault insurance.
