Cycling is a great way to commute, exercise, and have fun with the family. However, due to their lack of protection, bicycle accidents can result in serious injuries for the rider. These injuries, of course, have financial consequences.
If you are hit by a motor vehicle while riding your bike, you must report the accident to the police. To do so, attempt to obtain the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the driver and any witnesses, along with the driver’s license plate number, insurance company, and policy number.
In such accidents, the driver of the motor vehicle is presumed to be the negligent cause of the accident. Therefore, the driver of the vehicle has the onus of proving that you were entirely, or at least partially, responsible for the accident in order to reduce their damages. KMSC can help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve by helping to establish that you were the victim in your accident and by ensuring your injuries are properly assessed.
