You’re riding your bike and a car hits you. You’ve been injured. Maybe you’re wondering if you can sue the driver of that car and get compensation for your injuries and damages. Bike riders ask that question all the time. The answer is, more likely than not, you can. The answer also is, and more likely than not, the insurance adjuster is going to deny your claim because they’re going to say it was your fault because you weren’t riding your bike right. Somehow it was your fault, and they know that a certain percentage of people that they tell that to are just going to go away, regardless of whether that is a legitimate excuse or not.
If you’ve been hit by a car on a bike and you’ve been injured, you have a potential case. You have a potentially very valid claim, but the only way you’re going to know is to talk to an attorney who deals with bicycle accidents. Someone who will get out and investigate it, talk to the witnesses and make sure that they establish the facts to protect you and show that the driver of the car was at fault and their insurance company is responsible for your injuries.
