St. Petersburg Bicycle Accident Attorney

Pedestrians and bicyclists have very little protection against cars, trucks and other vehicles.

In 2008, almost 500 pedestrians in Florida died from injuries suffered in collisions with automobiles.
At the St. Petersburg, Florida, law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A., our lawyers have helped a number of pedestrians and bicyclists who have been injured in accidents.

Insurance in Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Cases
As a pedestrian or bicyclist, if you are injured by a motor vehicle during an accident, your injuries and expenses related to the accident may be paid by the operator of the motor vehicle that struck you. However, if you own an automobile and have insurance coverage on your automobile, your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage will cover 80% of your medical expenses up to $10,000, and 60% of disability benefits for loss of income or earning potential.
The law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A. can help you find all other sources of coverage, such as bodily injury coverage from the at-fault driver, or your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. We invite you to learn more about Florida Auto Insurance Laws and Requirements on this website or by calling us.
As with any type of accident that results in injury, it is important to know and understand every aspect of the accident, including how injuries were sustained and who was at fault for the accident. Our firm thoroughly investigates accidents in order to build a more effective case and maximize our clients’ potential recovery.
