Legal Information Regarding Your Rights and Options Following Bike Accidents
When two cars collide, legal follow-up steps are simple: Insurance information is exchange and claims are filed. When a bicyclist is struck by car, though, legal steps are less clear. Whose insurance company is responsible for damage? Which types of insurance apply? And what can you do if the automobile driver leaves the scene?

Even if the vehicle driver fled the scene, we can work aggressively to identify avenues of financial recovery for your loss, including health insurance policies and automobile policies.
