Property Damage In Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents leave a long trail of devastation in their wake. Of course, damage to your body — your health, mobility and overall well-being — is a foremost concern. Another major issue is property damage to your bike.

Your bicycle may be your prized possession. It's not just a hobby or mode of transportation, but a way of life — a passion.

A serious accident can leave your bike in shambles. Replacing it may only add to the financial worries you are already facing. High-end bikes can cost upward of several thousand dollars, not including all the gear and extras. What's more, many cyclists don't get insurance for their bikes. So how do you obtain compensation?

We Can Help You Pursue Compensation For Bicycle Damage

The first step is to consult with a lawyer. At Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC, in Fort Myers, Florida, we can help you explore your options for repairing or replacing your bicycle. If you have insurance on your bicycle, we will work on your behalf to pursue full compensation under the terms of the policy. Even if you don't have insurance, you may still be legally entitled to compensation for damage caused by another person's negligence. Our lawyers will make every effort to maximize your compensation.

Many bicycle accidents involve collisions with cars. In these cases, the driver's insurance might cover the damage to your bike. Our lawyers will advocate for your rights and deal with the complex insurance matters. For example, we will:

  • Fully document the damage
  • Obtain a fair estimate for the loss
  • Negotiate with the insurance representatives
  • File a lawsuit to pursue your financial recovery, if warranted

Several of our attorneys are avid cyclists. We understand how costly a bicycle accident can be. You shouldn't have to shoulder that cost — especially if someone else was at fault.
