What should I do if I am involved in a Florida bicycle accident?

If you're involved in a Florida bicycle accident, the first thing you should do is remain calm and do not get angry with or get into an argument with the motor vehicle driver. If you are seen as being hostile or aggressive, that can be used against you, and it can damage your case. Also, immediately identify and talk to every witness that you see. Ask them if they have any footage that may be helpful to the case. Take photographs if you're able to of your bicycle, of the vehicle, and the accident scene, anything else that you feel is important. Most importantly, however, is get medical treatment as soon as possible if you're injured. If you feel you may have a case don't hesitate to call your local Personal Injury Attorney Lutz for a consultation.
