I’ve Heard From My Broward County Cycling Friends, That Cyclists Are Notorious For Making Mistakes After They’ve Been In An Accident With Another Vehicle. Is That True?
Broward County cyclists frequently make innocent mistakes when involved in an accident with another vehicle. After cyclists get in an accident, they should NEVER make these common mistakes:
- Never remain silent. Cyclists are well respected for being tough and not complaining. Remember to speak up, report the accident, and call for help!
- Never accept ignorance from police. More often than not, police are known for not defending the rights of cyclists because they are ill-informed of the law as it related to bicyclists.
- Never negotiate. Cyclists would be best to not negotiate with the vehicle driver or insurance claim agent until speaking with a Florida Bicycle Accident attorney first.
- Never play it down. Just because cyclists have thick skin doesn’t mean they should take blame for the accident or injury. Research continues to prove, bicycle accidents are usually the fault of the vehicle driver.
