Last weekend, a Coral Springs man became the victim of a fatal bicycle accident that took place on Sample Road. Coral Springs police are still investigating the accident, which involved bicyclist Michael Fish, and the driver of a 2008 Infiniti, Anthony Pennachio, who has not been charged.

As Coral Springs bicycle injury lawyers, we are very familiar with the dangers that bicyclists face on our Florida roads. Bicyclists face risks of serious personal injuries and, in some cases, death, when riding for leisure or to their workplaces. While there are a number of reasons bicycle accidents occur, they are, in some cases, caused by negligent car drivers or defective bicycle manufacturing.

Unfortunately, bicycle accidents occur way too often in Florida. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics, Florida has been one of the top 3 states for bicycle accident fatalities since 2001, and had the highest number of bicycle accident deaths in the nation in 2007 and 2008. In 2008 alone, there were 4,380 accident injuries involving bicyclists and 118 deaths.
