A Record of Success in Bike Accident Cases
At Heintz & Becker, our board-certified civil trial lawyers have decades of experience representing victims of negligence, including bicyclists hit by cars. These cases often involve serious injuries or wrongful death, due to the lack of protection provided by a bicycle. Victims in Bradenton, Sarasota and the surrounding parts of Florida come to us for help because of our record of success in these serious and challenging cases.
Our law firm has established an impressive record of verdicts and settlements. In one case, we recovered $705,000 for a woman hit while riding her bicycle. The negligent driver took a right turn without looking, hitting the bicyclist and dragging her six feet. The accident resulted in serious injuries, including a broken pelvis and broken leg.
Sarasota Bike Injury Attorneys
Bicyclists have a right to use the road, the same as drivers of motor vehicles. Ideally, drivers would be watchful, making certain that their actions do not endanger bike riders. Unfortunately, drivers often fail to respect the rights of bicyclists. While they look for cars, they may take left or right turns and hit bicyclists. They pull out of driveways and parking lots too far and too quickly, ignoring the fact that bicycle traffic tends to be closer to the curb. These acts of negligence can result in bike accidents.
Our board-certified civil trial attorneys are dedicated to holding negligent drivers accountable. Each of our team members — Steven E. Heintz, David S. Becker and Eric D. Bruce — has a perfect 10.0 rating on AVVO, the top legal review site, proof of our commitment to getting results.
