see a bicyclist in his or her blind spot and may be injured as a result.
If you or a loved one was harmed in a bicycle accident with another cyclist,
vehicle, or any other dangerous barrier, don't hesitate to
contact Maria Gerber immediately to learn more.

Dealing with Insurance Companies After an Accident
Unfortunately, most drivers who cause bicycle accidents blame the entire
accident on the cyclist. In most cases, the cyclist will need to prove
that he or she was obeying all traffic laws and riding defensively at
the time of the accident. Drivers are still responsible for avoiding cyclists
and other motorists on the road.
Normally, the driver's insurance company will conduct their own investigation
of the accident in an effort to defend their insured driver from paying
a claim or lawsuit. The insurance company wants to limit their liability
and reduce their financial obligation to you. You shouldn't offer
information to the other insurer without a lawyer by your side.
Attorney Maria Gerber, founder of Gerber Law, understands the tactics and
strategies that insurance companies use to minimize their responsibility
in an accident. Ms. Gerber can fight back, proving that you suffered financial
loss from a serious accident and that the driver or the liable party needs to pay.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Florida
Bicycle accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- Distracted drivers
- Drivers making illegal turns
- Opening parked car doors
- Intentional harm to cyclists
- Failure to avoid bike lanes
Most often, drivers don't see a cyclist because they are looking down
at their phones or they are using a GPS system. They may make a turn,
failing to notice a bicyclist crossing the intersection. Whatever the
reason for your bicycle accident, if you have been severely injured, let
Ms. Gerber help seek justice and financial recovery.
