In the beautiful state of Florida, with many scenic parks, beaches, and tourist attractions, bicycles can be a great way to travel or get some exercise.
Unfortunately this creates more opportunities for bicyclists get into motor vehicle accidents. Bicycle crashes happen frequently at intersections and other areas where bicyclists must cross paths with cars and trucks.
Additionally, numerous drivers collide with bicyclists due to distracted driving, speeding, or following too closely, among other careless behaviors. Moreover, many people are surprised to learn that bicycle accident victims, and even pedestrians injured by a motor vehicle, are entitled to recover insurance benefits for personal injuries under their own auto insurance policies.
