Don’t allow the insurance company to take advantage of you. The insurance company’s goal is very self-serving, and they only seek to pay the injured person as little as they possibly can. Being involved in a bicycle accident can bring about a great deal of shock and confusion. When a biker is struck by the vehicle, they have absolutely no protection. As a result, these accidents almost always result in severe injuries. You may have a lot of concern about who is the responsible party; who will pay your lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses.
At Russell and Hill, PLLC, we have committed to assisting people in the recovery and acquisition of optimum compensation for any and all hospital bills, lost wages, future medical requirements, suffering, pain, and any other losses or damages related to your bicycle accident.
Protection for Bicycle Accident Victims
Bicyclists are extremely vulnerable in accidents with motor vehicles. The typical car or truck weighs in at a minimum 4,000 pounds. And even in addition to the weight, they offer the protective barriers of tempered glass, impact absorbing bumpers, airbags, antilock brakes, and seatbelts.
Bicycles do not have any of these protective features, and bicyclists only have a mere helmet and visibility augmenting elements such as reflectors or blinking lights. When a collision occurs between a car and a bicyclist, the driver is in almost no danger.
However, the consequences for the person on the bicycle can be dramatic. Every year, the number of bicycle accidents that occur in Marysville and its surrounding cities numbers in the hundreds. Particularly treacherous roads such as Highway 2, Highway 99, Highway 9, and the Everett-Bothell Highway contribute significantly to bicycle accidents.
