What You Should Know About Personal Injury Cases for Bicycle Accidents
California law makes it possible for a party injured in a bicycle accident or another type of incident to hold the at-fault party liable for their losses through a personal injury claim. In the scenario of a cycling crash, an injured bicycle rider may bring a claim against the negligent motorist and their insurer for reimbursement of medical bills, wage loss, and other losses. When it has been determined that the other side has limited or no liability insurance, the injured cyclist may be eligible to bring a claim through their uninsured or underinsured motorist protection. If the injured party did not have UM and UIM coverage at the time of the traumatic event but lived with someone who carries this protection, coverage may be extended to them so long as the policy did not list them as an excluded member.
An experienced Modesto bicycle accident lawyer will evaluate your economic and non-economic damages, including those likely to incur in the future and work with expert witnesses to determine a reasonable value for them. From there, your attorney will work with the insurance company representing the other side, or your own in an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim, to reach a mutual settlement agreement in your favor. If any settlement offer from the insurer falls short of the financial compensation you need to put the incident behind you, your injury lawyer should have no problem taking the case to court for a judge or jury to decide an appropriate award for you.
