Can You Get Money Damages after a Hit and Run Bike Accident?
San Francisco Bike Accident Lawyers
A car hits a bike rider causing serious injuries to the biker, but the car itself has very little damage. The driver speeds off. This grim scenario has occurred in many communities, leaving families to pick up the pieces after a serious injury or the death of their loved one.
You do not have to face this challenge alone. The Dolan Law Firm helps injured cyclists and families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death get compensation after hit and run bike accidents. Contact an injury lawyer at our San Francisco, Oakland, or Los Angeles law officices to schedule a free consultation. You may still be able to bring a bicycle accident claim.
Who Pays for Your Medical Bills and Expenses?
A bicycle hit and run accident is handled in the same way as an uninsured motorist claim by the insurance company. Because you cannot bring a claim against the person who was at fault, you bring a claim against your own insurance company.
While there is no “bike accident insurance” claim to make, you are covered for vehicle-related injuries if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage or personal injury protection coverage on your own auto policy. You might also be able to bring a bicycle accident claim under the car insurance policy of another member of your household.
Our goal in every case is to ensure our clients achieve the financial recovery they deserve for their injuries and losses. If there is a possible source of financial recovery, we will find it. We have a strong track record of results for injured bikers.
