Most people learn to ride a bike when they are young. Bicycle riding can become a lifelong passion. When you are out and about around Hallandale Beach, you are sure to find plenty of people on their bikes enjoying the scenery.
Whether you are an occasional rider or a person who uses their bicycle daily, you should not have to worry about what would happen if you are hurt.

When people think about riding their bike, they do not typically think about getting hurt. However, we need to be honest and admit that bike riding comes with risks. Even for those who wear a helmet (which we always recommend), there can be severe injuries in the event of an accident. Please know that in an incident with a vehicle, our bodies are likely to suffer extreme damage.
For the latest reporting year in Florida, there were 6,675 bicycle crashes. Out of those:
It is common for bicyclists of all ages to suffer from the following injuries after an impact with a vehicle:
These injuries all require immediate medical treatment that can easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, we know that these emergency medical costs are often only the beginning. If a victim needs long-term rehabilitation or is permanently disabled, the costs can become overwhelming. Insurance companies rarely take into account a person’s lost income if they cannot work due to their injuries.
Bicyclists are prone to harm from negligent drivers, but they will almost always suffer more harm than a passenger in a vehicle. Often, cyclists are struck while they are crossing legally at intersections, using designated bike paths, or using appropriate crosswalks. Distracted drivers are unlikely to notice or stop for a cyclist.
Even at slow speeds, a bicyclist can suffer from severe injuries.
Even if you take all the necessary steps to ride safely, you cannot predict the actions of those around you.
