West Palm Beach Bicycle Attorney
Serving Florida from our Boca Raton Office
Bicyclists have just as much right to be on the road as vehicles do. And, with Florida’s great bike riding weather year-round, it’s no wonder that cycling is a popular sport.
Many Florida residents ride their bikes for exercise and use them as an alternative transportation to work and activities.
All too often, cars and trucks do not look out for cyclists, leading to devastating bicycle accidents. Whether you or a loved one was injured while riding a bike, you may have the right to compensation for your injuries and losses.
At Glotzer & Kobren, we sympathize with our clients and their injuries. We understand that cycling is for many a beloved past-time, and the trauma as well as injuries you suffer from your bicycle accident could result in a loss of enjoyment, or possibly even the physical inability to ever ride a bike again.

Despite best efforts for bicycle safety, even the safest cyclist cannot control the vehicles around them. Cars on the road are often not aware of the bicycles they share the road with, which is why it should be no surprise that passenger vehicles are often to blame in cyclist-related accidents.
Some of the most common causes for bike accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Left Turns at Intersections
- Left Turns Through Gaps in Traffic
- Right Turns Ahead of a Cyclist
- Right Turns Overtaking Cyclists
- Doors Opened Onto Oncoming Cyclists
- Rear-Ended by a Vehicle
- Side-Swiped by a Vehicle Unfortunately, many bike accidents in Florida are also hit-and-run incidents.
Determining Negligence in Bicycle Accidents
Determining who is at fault with a cycling accident is not easy. To recover your damages, your Boca Raton bicycle accident lawyer must be able to answer two questions:
- Was the driver acting recklessly or negligently at the time of the accident? (Examples include not using their turn signal, running a red light or even texting while driving.)
- Did the cyclist contribute to their injuries? (For example, riding in front of a vehicle when the vehicles had a green light, or riding at night without a headlight or reflectors.)
Even if you contributed to your injuries, you may be still be entitled to partial compensation from the driver.
