Bicycle accidents in Florida do not occur as often as other types of crashes. However, they are much more likely than a car or truck accident to result in serious injuries to the victim. Bicycles offer no protection from the impact of a collision. Combined with negligent and careless drivers, riding a bike in Florida can pose a great risk of injuries or death.
We would like to extend our thoughts and best wishes to the injured victim following this bicycle accident in Daytona Beach. We hope for a complete and speedy recovery.
