Seeking Compensation for a Bicycle-Car Accident in Hollywood

Southern Florida has excellent medical facilities, so if you’re injured in a bicycle accident you can get quality care. However, the cost of care can be substantial. If you’ve suffered a permanent, serious head injury or spinal cord injury, for example, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that your total medical care, personal care, and other expenses will be over a million dollars. Even broken bones can cost thousands of dollars or tens of thousands of dollars in x-rays, surgery, and treatment. Even with good health insurance some of your costs will be out of pocket.

In addition to medical costs, you need to consider additional losses after your bicycle accident. Maybe you can’t return to work for weeks or months or you need to reply on taxis because you can’t easily get around. You may even need at home care to help you with everyday tasks. All these expenses can be considerable.

Protecting your financial future can start with seeking maximum compensation for your injuries, so you can protect your assets and have the resources you need while you heal.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
