Rely On Our Elite, Aggressive Attorneys To Stand Up For The Justice & Damages You Deserve.
Across the United States, the rate of bicycle accidents and deaths is on the rise; fatalities nationwide are up more than 25% from 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For years, Florida has been named the most dangerous state for bicyclists, earning the title again in 2021 when 160 bicyclists were killed in crashes statewide. Orange County, and particularly Orlando, has one of the highest bicycle accident and fatality rates in Florida. This could be due to the fact that Orlando is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the U.S. – many drivers don’t know their way around the city and are navigating to attractions. This could also be due to the fact that the roads are designed to prioritize the flow of traffic, not bicyclist safety, or that Orlando drivers are often distracted, or a combination of all of these reasons. If you were seriously injured while riding a bicycle in or near Orlando due to a driver’s negligent actions, you’re not alone, and you deserve maximum monetary compensation. Our Orlando bicycle accident injury lawyers can work to get you paid!
Insurance companies are sometimes unwilling to offer bicyclists a full settlement because doing so could hurt their bottom line; we will stand up for your rights and advocate for you to receive an amount that reflects what your injuries are truly worth and the suffering you’ve endured as a result of the crash. We’re not afraid to go to trial if that’s what it takes to win! At The Florida Law Group, we have recovered over $1 billion for our clients since 1984, and we have over 100 years of combined experience on our team. We frequently recover million or multi-million dollar settlements in single cases, a track record which has earned us recognition from prestigious legal organizations such as the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, the Trial Lawyer Board of Regents, Florida Super Lawyers, Avvo, the Best Lawyers in America, the National Trial Lawyers Top 100, and more. Our lead attorney, Chris Limberopoulous, is a board certified civil trial specialist. Because we believe that all injured bicyclists deserve justice, regardless of socioeconomic status, you will never have to pay our fees until we obtain a settlement for you.

Common Types Of Bicycle Accident Injuries
Because cyclists are mostly unprotected, they are more likely to be injured than the drivers who hit them or cause them to crash, even if they are wearing a helmet. How severely you were hurt depends entirely of the specifics of the accident, but some of the most common injuries we see as Orlando bicycle accident injury lawyers include:
- Abrasions, or “road rash”
- Burns and lacerations
- Strains, fractures, and dislocations
- Internal bleeding
- Eye trauma
- Dental injuries (to teeth, jaw, etc.)
- Skull fracture
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, most bicycle collision-related injuries are to the upper or lower extremeties and head. Head injuries account for 22-47% of bicycle injuries and are responsible for over 60% of bicycle-related deaths. If you survive a bicycle crash, you may have severe or permanent injuries. The person responsible for the crash should be held responsible; our team can demand accountability to the law and closure for you and your family in the form of financial restitution. We fight to get you the money you need to pay for treatment and cover your other losses!
Types Of Damages Our Orlando Bicycle Accident Injury Lawyers May Be Able To Recover In Your Settlement
How much The Florida Law Group can recover in your settlement depends on many different factors regarding your accident, including how serious/permanent your injuries are, whether or not the other driver was completely negligent (or if you shared some of the blame for the collision), how much evidence and documentation exists to back up your claim, and more. Only an experienced attorney can give you an accurate estimate of what your accident is worth; biased insurance agents may lead you to believe that you don’t need a lawyer, or that you do not have a case, or that your recovery will be small, but they don’t have your best interests in mind. Our team may be able to recover damages for you in the following categories:
- medical expenses (for things like ambulatory or air transport, imaging tests like X-rays or MRIs, surgeries, hospital bills, emergency dental work, copays, deductibles, physical therapy, chiropractic care, mental health counseling, medications, rehabilitation, and more)
- lost wages (for time you were unable to work and earn regular or overtime pay due to your injuries)
- future lost wages (if you will be unable to return to your career or become permanently disabled as a result of the accident)
- pain and suffering (for the physical and emotional trauma you endured)
- punitive damages (if the court wants to make an example of the negligent driver’s actions – this is most common if they were intoxicated, texting, or speeding recklessly when they struck your bicycle)
- and more!
