Miami Bicycle Accident Attorneys You Can Trust

Miami has many people cycling through our streets every day. It makes sense, given our near constant sunshine. Most bike trips end well, but the worst can happen. Cyclists are uniquely vulnerable to accidents because they have little protection when they are struck by a motor vehicle. 

It is for exactly that reason that you need a bicycle attorney in Florida. Our experienced team has what it takes to win your case today.

Other parties may be held responsible for injuries and wrongful deaths caused in a bicycle accident.

Potential Injuries From Bicycle Accidents

There are many common injuries from bicycle accidents. Even if a cyclist is riding as safely as possible, the worst can still happen. When it does, we can be there alongside you. Read below to learn common problems:

  • Broken Bones
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries

  • Crushing Injuries
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Road Rash

The above is not meant to be a complete and comprehensive list. There are more potential injuries that can arise from a bike crash.

What To Do After a Bicycle Accident

There are a few things that you should always do after a bike accident. Try following the below in order: 

  • Wait for the police to arrive
  • Obtain the driver’s information
  • Obtain contact information from any witnesses
  • Document what happened, either through notes, photos, or anything you have on hand
  • Make sure the police take your report

Bike Accidents & Negligence

  • The driver turning directly in front of the cyclist
  • Failure to yield
  • The driver failing to look both ways
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to look before changing lanes
  • Mechanical failure of the bicycle
  • Distracted driving
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Running a stop sign
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Speeding

  • Misunderstanding bicycle speeds
  • Checking social media while driving
  • Tending to children or other occupants in the vehicle

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.
  • We can. Call 305-662-6178 or submit a request for your FREE CONSULTATION to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. We will review your case at no charge. To learn more about personal injury, please read below.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
