Florida is the Deadliest State for Bikers
In Central Florida, an estimated 1,300 people use a bicycle to get to work each day, and Orlando is no exception. Still, even as more and more people use their bike as their main means of transportation, road planning and safety has not caught up, and Florida has the highest per capita rate of bicycle accidents in the country.
Many of these accidents occur in Orlando, a large city with a growing number of cyclists and an aging population. The city is working to become more bike friendly, but in the meantime, accidents can happen, and the results can range from minor scratches to life threatening injuries.
If you are involved in a bike accident in Orlando, call the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham immediately. With more than 30 years of experience representing bicyclists and pedestrians, attorney James Cunningham can help get you the compensation you deserve.
In Orlando, the problem stems from streets designed for automobiles and urban sprawl, not pedestrians or cyclists. Other factors, like inattentive drivers, slow reaction times, cell phone use, and limited sight lines also contribute to the rising number of bicycle accidents.
Some of the most common injuries from bicycle accidents include:
- Broken Bones
- Compound Fractures
- Head Injuries
- Broken Hips
- Traumatic Brain Injuries and
- Spinal Cord Injuries
