Representation for Cyclists

The Fort Lauderdale personal injury law firm of Lyons, Snyder & Collin aggressively represents cyclists who were injured as a result of being struck or hit by an automobile or motorcycle.

The Plantation personal injury law firm of Lyons, Snyder & Collin aggressively represents cyclists who were injured as a result of being struck or hit by an automobile or motorcycle.

Cyclists deserve special attention

The trial attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin represent cyclists at all levels, from the weekend warrior to the long-distance competitor.  Every lawyer in the firm exercises on a daily basis, in some shape or form. Exercising enhances our lives not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. As a result, and unlike other personal injury attorneys, we understand the mental and emotional pain from being unable to exercise. Our lawyers would be miserable if we couldn’t partake in our daily basketball, yoga, or golf outings; as such, we will work tirelessly to ensure you are financially compensated (“made whole”) if you are unable to cycle regularly.

Cyclists should receive special compensation

Injuries suffered to cyclists as a result of being struck by an automobile can be severe and life altering. Although lower back, neck or foot pain can be a nuisance for some clients, the same pain can be devastating for cyclists.

A cyclist’s inability to perform the activity he or she loves due to the negligence of another should be a focus of their case and not an afterthought. Our personal injury attorneys are skilled at effectively relaying to insurance adjusters and, if needed, juries, about the physical, mental, and emotional importance of cyclists exercising on a daily basis and, more specifically, why cyclists should be compensated for being unable to exercise on a daily basis.

As you can imagine, many lawyers have not seen the inside of a gym since college – the lawyers at Lyons, Snyder & Collin believe routine exercise is necessary for a balanced life and will aggressively fight to make the negligent driver compensate you for your injuries.

Cyclists require special doctors

A large majority of personal injury lawyers send all their clients, regardless of their physical abilities, to the same chiropractors, physiatrists,  physical therapists, and orthopedic surgeons. Our personal injury attorneys make it a priority to appropriately send our clients for treatment depending not only on their injury(-ies) but based on their physical background. It may not be appropriate for an avid 30 year old cyclist to be treated by the same doctor as an 80 year old retiree.

Many of the doctors we recommend to clients have specialized training with athletes and work closely with local high school and college athletic departments. As such, these doctors can not only properly evaluate injuries specific to athletes, but can effectively describe the severity of injuries to the insurance companies taking into consideration the cyclists’ unique characteristics.

Plain and simple – cyclists are special!

The attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin love representing cyclists, period! Why … because a cyclist would not miss even one day of training unless he/she was suffering from a legitimate injury. Stated another way, cyclists do not receive unnecessary medical treatment at the expense of not exercising to enhance the value of their case. Few things are more satisfying than cross-examining an insurance defense attorneys’ medical expert who testifies that our client is “manufacturing” an injury when we can point to the fact that before this incident our client had cycled an average of 25 miles every day for the past 5 years and hasn’t been on bicycle since the accident.  Our personal injury attorneys do not sleep until we make sure our cyclist clients obtain the highest possible settlement to account for their pain and suffering.

All of our personal injury practice operates on a contingency fee basis, which means that you never have to pay any fee or cost until and unless we obtain a settlement and/or jury award at trial. Of course, if we are unsuccessful, you do not pay anything. That is our no-fee guarantee.
