Q. Is it a difficult for an injured cyclist to make a claim?

A. No. Making a claim when someone else is at fault is easy. Maximizing the value of the claim and defeating the insurance companies efforts to minimize your claim is more difficult. The favorite tool of the insurance company in minimizing the value of an injured biker’s claim is by asserting comparative negligence. This is why it is important to have an experienced bicycle accident lawyer on your side. If you go it alone and give a recorded statement, the insurance company will do its best to get you to make statements that it will claim indicates you are partly to blame. You should never give a recorded statement without speaking with a lawyer first. I will handle every aspect of your claim and let you focus on getting better.
