Naples Bike Crash Lawyer
CALL NOW: 561-316-7207
Naples is a small city located on the southwest coast of Florida. Naples is surrounded by many popular tourist destinations, including Sanibel Island, Boca Grande and Port Charlotte. The region's major industry is tourism, and the area receives millions of visitors annually. These coastal communities have some of Florida's best beaches and offer beautiful bicycle riding locations. Unfortunately, when out of state tourists rent bicycles in Naples, they are forced to reckon with careless motorists, which commonly leads to Naples bicycle accidents.
Naples Bicycle Crash Facts
Following the death Naples' NBC2 meteorologist Jim Reif in a Naples bicycle crash, the local Naples NBC affiliate wrote an article on the prevalence of bicycle accidents in Southwest Florida. NBC Naples reports that between 2011 and 2014, there were 11 fatal Lee County bicycle accidents and more than 200 Lee County bicycle crashes with cars resulting in serious injury. These figures only deal with Lee County bike crashes and do not account for the hundreds more bicyclists that are hit by cars in Collier County, Hendry County, Charlotte County and Glades County.

Port Charlotte Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Many of my family members live in Port Charlotte and I visit regularly. I personally cycle around Port Charlotte, usually towards the scenic Charlotte Harbor. I am familiar with the 'on again, off again' bike lanes that plague Port Charlotte bicycle riders. As a result, I personally have had close calls where I was almost hit by a car. If you've been injured in a Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda bicycle crash, speak with a Port Charlotte bicycle lawyer to learn about your potential rights.
Sanibel Island Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Injured in paradise? Sanibel Island is nothing short of paradise. Sadly, preventable bike accidents in Sanibel Island are not unheard of.

As a cyclist, I personally try to get over to Sanibel at least once a year to cycle over the Sanibel causeway. This 2011 editorial discusses the dangers bicyclists in Sanibel face when riding alongside cars.
