Bike accidents happen for many reasons. A bicyclist may be riding on the side of the road and a car passes too close and hits the bike. Or a car driver does not see the bike and makes a turn right into the bicyclist. Drivers often do not recognize the bike’s right to the roadway and will not allow enough room for the bike. The bike may be run off the road onto a dangerous shoulder.

  • Serious injuries: Bike accident injuries are almost always serious. A bicyclist is no match against a car or truck. Wearing a helmet cannot fully protect against a head injury. Broken bones, neck/back pain, and road rash are common injuries, but proper medical treatment can carry a high cost. If you do not have health insurance, a lawyer at Koch & Brim can help you find a doctor.
  • At-fault driver’s insurance coverage: The person who caused the bike accident should be responsible for providing insurance coverage. If the bike accident was a hit-and-run or if the at-fault driver was uninsured, there are other options.
  • Your auto insurance policy may provide coverage: If you were in a bike accident, your auto insurance may cover your injuries. Your policy may also cover the injuries if your minor child was in a bike accident.
  • Uninsured motorist coverage: When the at-fault driver was uninsured or underinsured or when the driver left the scene of the accident and was not identified, your automobile insurance policy’s uninsured motorist coverage is available even though you were not in a car.

Regardless, our bicycle accident injury lawyers can help you seek compensation from insurance coverage for a bike accident.
