When you hire a bicycle accident attorney, you can guarantee that you won’t be settling for less than what the value is of your claim. An attorney will be able to make sure the party at fault is held accountable with the goal of making sure your current and future medical bills, wages and property damages are covered. If you end up needing surgery for your injuries, the insurance company should pay for the full costs. Having an attorney will help you with your negotiation so that you don’t accept a low settlement.
Bicycle accidents tend to occur between a cyclist and a vehicle. More often than not, the vehicle did not see the cyclist while driving.
Common Types of Bicycle Accidents:
These causes will lead to a cyclist being side swiped, rear ended, hit in a bike lane or the cyclist biking into a car door when the driver is opening the vehicle.
Once you contact the driver’s insurance provider, an investigation will begin into your bicycle accident case. Your case will be assigned an insurance adjuster and that person’s job is to get you to settle for a lower amount than you should to save the insurance company money. Do not agree to a recorded statement for the insurance company. Legally, you don’t need to agree to something like this. By giving a recorded statement before speaking to an experienced attorney, the insurance company will have ammo they can use against your claim. You need to be working with an attorney at this point to make sure you are put in the best position to recover the actual damages incurred from the bicycle accident.
