The most common personal injury cases are motor vehicle accidents, involving cars, motorcycles, 18-wheelers, bicycles and more. These types of accidents can be devastating, not only causing massive, life-changing injuries but also overwhelming families financially at a time when they need to focus on healing.

In the state of Florida there are specific laws governing motorists when encountering cyclists on the road. Laws such as maintaining a safe distance, a safe speed, exercising appropriate care and the opening & closing of vehicle doors. Roads and streets are a cooperative system and must be shared, not just with other vehicles, but also with human powered vehicles, such as bicycles.
An avid cyclist himself, attorney Randy Thompson briefly explains in the following video that the law in the state of Florida requires that you pass a cyclist and give him or her at least three feet of space — but you should do more than that. Remember to share the road with cyclists. They are vehicles — human powered vehicles — and deserve the same respect as any other vehicle. Don’t text. Don’t email. Pay attention to the road and other vehicles around you.
