In Florida, bicycles are not considered motor vehicles under Florida law. As such, it is not necessary for bicyclists or pedestrians for that matter, to prove a permanent injury or significant scarring or disfigurement as required of motorists injured in automobile accidents. The only requirement that a Florida bicyclist must meet is that they sustained an injury due to the negligence of a Florida motorist.
You should always wear protective headgear and reflective clothing when riding a bicycle. You should always proceed with the flow of traffic.
