Can I still bring a Florida lawsuit against the driver if I was doing something I was not supposed to while riding my bicycle?
You absolutely may bring a lawsuit against the driver of a car who struck you while you were riding your bicycle even if you were doing something you weren't supposed to do. Each case has its own unique set of facts and so we would look at that and determine what parties are liable and who you could sue and go after to recover for your damages. It could be the driver of the car who struck you, some surrounding motorists. It could be the city for the way they kept the roads. It could be your own auto insurance company. There are several different areas and parties who may be liable.
