Compassionate Legal Guidance After Serious Bike Accident Injuries
Children and adults riding bikes on the street or in their neighborhoods can be unpredictable. However, other drivers must be aware — driving slowly and cautiously to prevent serious injury or accidental death on the road. At the law office of Craig J. Olsen, P.A., Attorney at Law, in Wesley Chapel, Florida, we have over 25 years of experience handling complex cases involving bike accidents and collisions that result in serious injury or death to individuals.
Motorcycle And Scooter Accidents Can Be Catastrophic
Individuals riding motorized bikes and scooters are equally at risk for serious injury, especially when traveling at high speeds. Although wearing a helmet is not required by law for anyone over 21, if you choose not to wear a helmet, the state requires you to have a $10,000 medical insurance policy that will cover your injuries if you are in an accident. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident and you were not wearing a helmet at the time, the court may consider this factor as a contributing cause to your injuries. Therefore, the damages you receive may be less than if you were wearing a helmet.
