Question:

How different is a bicycle accident claim compared to a car accident claim?

Answer:

I got a call yesterday from someone who was injured on a bicycle after being struck by a motor vehicle driver. She wanted to know how her claim differed had she been a passenger or a driver in another car. The main way that the claim differs is that because you’re not in a car, if you don’t own a car, you may not have access to personal injury protection coverage that would apply to pay for your medical treatment.Bicycle Accident ClaimsYou may, however, be entitled to, if you don’t own a vehicle, to collect from the personal injury protection coverage of the at-fault driver, but first you also need to check out, if you have a blood relative that you reside with who owns a vehicle, you may be able to recover under their personal injury protection coverage. What you need to do, because those claims not being in a car are slightly different, is contact a firm that handles bicycle accident injury claims.
