What are the differences between a bicycle accident and an auto accident claim?
Recently, I was speaking with a client and they asked me, “What are the major differences between a bicycle accident claim and your routine auto accident claim?” Certainly, there are numerous examples, but I think the most important relates to the severity of the injuries. When you’re on a bicycle, you are not protected as you are in a car, so the injuries certainly can be much more significant and catastrophic.
Secondly, when a bicycle accident case gets to a jury – and the insurance companies know this – there’s always some assumption that the person on the bicycle did something wrong and was at fault and to blame for the accident. They rode out in front of the car, for example. That is where it is extremely important that you hire a knowledgeable, educated, and well-trained trial attorney.
We are experienced in addressing these points of contention that involve the insurance companies and the defense lawyers trying to push the blame on the person riding the bicycle.
