Riding a bicycle is a healthy and fun form of exercise for the entire family. There are even some people who rely on bicycles as their main form of transportation. Unfortunately, the growing number of distracted drivers on the road, the absence of proper bicycle lanes or crosswalks, and a lack of awareness of bicycle laws have resulted in an increased number of motor vehicle accidents involving bicyclists. These accidents often result in serious life-threatening injuries or worse, death.
An injured bicyclist is entitled to make a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company, just as drivers can file claims after accidents between two vehicles.
