The Perazzo Law Firm staff of lawyers serving bike lane accidents in Miami, know that bike lane accidents are quite common given the number of different kinds of vehicles taking to city avenues and streets. Bike lane accident victims are usually injured severely when struck by a truck or fast moving vehicle crossing at intersections. Vehicles making abrupt turns also lead to bicycle accidents for those riding their bikes in bike lanes. Though safer than driving along the flow of traffic or even in traffic, bike lanes provide a much safer alternative to those that ride to commute or exercise. Distracted motorists are usually at fault, but distracted bike riders also contribute to the number of bicycle accidents in Miami. The Perazzo Law Firm staff of bike accident attorneys understand bike accidents and the cause and effect they can have on the victims and their families. That is why bike accident victims need to take precautions and understand what to do in case of a bicycle accident in Miami or any other South Florida city or suburb. Apart from proper gear and bike maintenance, which could be determining factors in a possible accident claim for compensation, bike riders that fall victim to negligent motorists need to follow certain rules to avoid accidents when in bike lanes. Proceed with caution when approaching intersections. This is where most bike accidents on bike lanes occur. In the event of a bike accident that takes place in a biking lane, the bike accident victim needs to immediately determine any serious injuries and if possible, get out of harm's way. Sometimes, a bike accident victim may be propelled upon being impacted by a fast moving motor vehicle or another bike and land in the middle of a busy street or avenue. It is good advice to foresee an accident and try to imagine possible reactions to avoid further injury. Bike lane accidents may include pedestrians that walk into bike lanes or cross bike lanes while distracted by cell phone use. Pedestrians that cross bike lanes sometimes fail to stop and look to see if a bike rider is heading in their direction. Bike riders may also cause accidents in bike lanes when they approach intersections or ride while distracted by negligent cell phone us. Bike lane accidents in Miami are relatively high when it comes to negligent cell phone use being one of the causes of the bike lane accident.
