Kentucky Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. A cyclist may get “doored”, hit by a negligent driver of an automobile, run over a defect on a sidewalk or street, etc. There are hundreds of bicycle accidents in Kentucky each year, many resulting in injury and some resulting in death. If you have been injured in a Kentucky bicycle accident, it is important to contact a Kentucky Bicycle Accident Lawyer to help guide you through the legal process of recovering medical expenses, lost wages, and other compensation.
What Happens If I Pursue A Claim Against A Negligent Driver?
It is important to note that in most cases, the defendant’s insurance company pays for your claim, not the defendant himself or herself. Their insurance company will also pay costs associated with defending a claim. A Kentucky Bicycle Accident Lawyer should serve as a guide and advocate in your case. First, we help you acquire all the information and documentation necessary to build a strong case and help you determine what your case may be worth and what you should expect to recover. After we gather the information, communicate with your doctors, and in some cases, other medical professionals, we draft a demand package and try to negotiate a settlement with the defendant’s insurance company. We help you assess the settlement offer and determine whether or not your case should be litigated. If your case should be litigated, we manage all aspects of the litigation process and make sure that your case is presented in the best way possible.
What If It Was A Hit-And-Run Bicycle Accident?
Unfortunately, many Kentucky bicycle accidents are hit-and-runs. The negligent driver of the automobile does not stop after striking the cyclist and so it is difficult, if not impossible, to determine the identity of the person at fault. However, you may still be able to recover your medical expenses and other compensation from your own insurance company if you have an underinsured motorist policy.
