Do not allow the insurance company to take advantage of you. The insurance company’s utmost goal is to pay the injured person the lowest amount possible. Bicycle accidents can be abrupt and confusing accidents for their victims. When the bicyclist is struck by a car, they have no barriers of protection. As a result, these accidents are frequently more catastrophic in terms of injuries the bicyclists sustain. It is appropriate to be concerned about who will be responsible for paying your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages that have been incurred.
Bicyclists are scarily vulnerable in accidents with motor vehicles. Most standard cars and trucks weigh in around 4,000 pounds or more, have protection in the form of tempered glass, front and rear ends that absorb impact, airbags, seat belts and antilock brakes.
Bicyclists have absolutely none of these safety features, and a helmet can only do so much. Helmets and visibility enhancing components such as reflectors or blinking lights won’t be of any assistance when an automobile collides with a bicyclist.
While the driver is not in any danger in a bicycle accident, the person outside of the car will face severe consequences. Each year, hundreds of bicycle accidents take place in Lynnwood. Particularly, dangerous roads such as Highway 2, the Everett-Bothell Highway, Highway 99, and Highway 9 are very hazardous to bicyclists.
If you are a bicyclist that has been involved in a recent bicycle accident, our attorneys will be able to assist you in receiving appropriate health care and conducting a thorough investigation of the accident and its cause. In addition, we will partner with your doctor or other medical experts to properly demonstrate the full magnitude of your injuries and your losses.
The vast majority of Washington auto insurance policies offer personal injury protection (PIP) to cover bicyclists who have been injured. We are able to help guide you through the PIP claim process, to include any bifurcated claims.
By sorting out all the appropriate insurance questions, our attorneys can pursue recovery via the at-fault driver’s auto insurance, or through any other means of available insurance coverage.
Additionally, we can represent you in whichever insurance claim disputes arise, including bad faith insurance claim denials.
