Kid's Helmet and Bike on a Pedestrian Line After Danger Incident with a CarYou’re here because a bicycle ride turned into an ambulance ride.

That’s where a Williston bicycle accident lawyer from Meldon Law comes in. We have the skills, resources, and knowledge necessary to bolster your claim.

Our Bicycle Accident Lawyers Seek Compensation for Your Williston Collision

When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to recover compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. Here’s what to know about both:

Economic Damages Account for Your Financial Losses

Economic losses have a specific dollar amount associated with them because you had to pay out a certain amount or lost a certain amount. These losses may include:

  • Medical costs, such as surgery, prescriptions, treatment, hospital stays, rehab, therapy, medical devices, and transportation to and from medical appointments
  • Anything you spent out of pocket on childcare services, in-home help, and lawn care during your recovery period
  • The replacement or repair of property damaged during the accident, including your bicycle, clothing, or personal items you had with you at the time
  • Wages lost while you are unable to work
  • Future earnings lost if your injury affects your ability to resume your old job, and you must change to a lower-paying position

Non-Economic Damages Account for Your Physical and Emotional Turmoil

Non-economic losses are those for which you have no invoices or receipts. They are subjective by nature. Our bike crash attorneys help you determine a dollar figure appropriate for each of these losses:

  • The pain and suffering you felt during the accident, both mental and physical. You may endure these feelings for weeks, months, or even years after the accident.
  • Persistent anxiety, depression, or fear. You may also suffer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the collision.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life. This can happen when you are physically unable to participate in activities you previously enjoyed.
  • Scarring or disfigurement. Alterations to your appearance could affect your relationships, job opportunities, and quality of life.

If you lost a loved one, our hearts go out to you during this distressing time. We know that compensation can’t totally address your grief, but we acknowledge that it could ease your financial situation. Financial recovery in a wrongful death case can cover funeral expenses, loss of consortium, and the loss of guidance and relationships.

Our Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Williston Protect Your Rights

At Meldon Law, we’ve seen our fair share of bicycle accident cases. We’ve served Florida since 1971, and in that time, we’ve recovered millions for injured clients. We’re honored that you would consider entrusting us with your legal matters. Our team works by your side to:

  • Navigate Florida’s ever-changing personal injury landscape
  • Investigate the accident to identify the liable parties
  • Gather supporting evidence, such as the police report and witness testimony
  • Calculate your past, present, and future injury-related losses
  • File your claim with the liable insurance provider
  • Handle communications with all parties
  • Negotiate with insurance companies for a full and fair settlement
  • Proceed with trial preparations and represent you in court, should negotiations fail

We Navigate Florida’s Personal Injury Laws When Building Your Case

During the legal process, our attorneys monitor the passage of time to ensure that, if you are going to file a personal injury lawsuit, you do so within two years of the accident. There are exceptions to this time limit, but generally, you are not allowed to file a lawsuit for compensation past the two-year period.

Another issue that we will discuss in the early stages of your case is Florida’s modified comparative negligence rule. This rule says that if the injured party is more than 50% liable for the accident, they may not recover compensation for their losses.

Our bike accident attorneys offer legal options that fit the individual aspects of your case. You can feel at ease knowing that whatever path you choose will be appropriate for your circumstances.

Who Are the Williston Bicycle Accident Lawyers at Meldon Law?

For more than half a century, we have advocated for clients who have suffered injuries due to other parties’ negligence. Our attorneys are considered a force to be reckoned with, inside and outside the courtroom. We are fierce fighters when it comes to insurance companies and their lawyers, but with our clients, we serve with compassion and integrity.

Over the past few decades, our Williston personal injury lawyers successfully recovered millions in damages for traffic accident claimants. Here are some of our stories:

  • Our client, a pedestrian, was hit by a car that was pulling out of a parking lot. She required lower back surgery and a spinal stimulator transplant. We recovered $1.25 million for her losses.
  • Our client was an 18-month-old who was run over by a car pulling out of the driveway. They suffered lung contusions, a broken rib, and multiple abrasions. We secured $305,000 for the child’s medical expenses and pain and suffering.

We hope that these case results inspire confidence in our commitment to financial justice.
