Bike Injury Accidents Are Different
Bike accident injury claims are different from regular car accident claims. The evidence at the scene does not always show clearly the car driver was at fault and juries sometimes blame bicyclists for simply being on the road with cars (this happens with motorcycles too). We thoroughly investigate the accident scene, including photographing and documenting lines of sight, visbility, and speeds.
Another big difference in bike accident injury cases are the injuries sustained. It goes without saying that a bicyclists is at a great disadvantage when it comes to protection from cars. Usually a bike helmet is the only piece of gear you are wearing for protection. We have handled bike accident claims where our clients have been knocked unconscious (i.e. head injuries) and/or broken shoulders, collar bones, arms, and legs. We help our clients get to quality medical care even if they don’t have health insurance.
Insurance To Pay Your Bike Injury Claim
You will be relieved to know that the at fault car driver’s insurance should cover your claim, including medical bills and pain and suffering. But that doesn’t mean they will do it willingly or fairly. And if the other driver doesn’t have insurance, most Georgia uninsured motorist coverage will permit you to make a claim against your own insurance for recovery. But you will be surprised to learn that your insurance company will act no differently than the at fault driver’s when it comes to doing the right thing. That’s why you need Gwinnett accident lawyer David Brauns to help you. You will get the peace of mind that everything from investigating, the accident and getting to good medical care, to finding and forcing insurance coverage to cover you claim is being taken care of for you.
