Santa Cruz Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Things to Know if You’ve Been Injured in a Bicycle Accident
If you have been in a bicycle accident, you are encouraged to consult with a lawyer who has a proven track record with bicycle injuries – even if you do not end up hiring one. Reason being, bicycle accident cases tend to be more complex than typical auto accident or pedestrian accident cases because the right-of-way is so often in question.
It is Brad & Tyson Wiles’ opinion that parties involved in auto vs. bicycle accidents are far more seriously injured than those in auto vs. auto cases. A bicyclist is extremely vulnerable to the huge, heavy automobile that may strike them on the road knocking to them ground. Brad & Tyson believe that bicycle victims stand in a very unique position and are entitled to substantially larger recoveries based on their vulnerable position and the likelihood of more serious injuries.
Bicycle Accidents Involving Under-Insured or Uninsured Motorists
If you are a bicyclist injured by an uninsured or under-insured motorist, your own automobile insurance policy may cover your injuries despite the fact that you were not in your car at the time of the accident. The circumstances of each case may differ including the insurance policies involved, the type and severity of injuries, and whether or not there is insurance available. Wiles & Wiles, Attorneys at Law in Santa Cruz will be able to help you recover compensation for your injuries even if the driver who hit you was uninsured or under insured.
