While not as common as other types of crashes, bicycle accidents take place every day in Florida. A Florida bicycle crash can lead to devastating injuries that may take weeks and even months to heal. Bicyclists are vulnerable to being seriously hurt because they have little protection from the force and impact of the accident.
