Hit-and-Run Bike Accidents

Legal Information Regarding Your Rights and Options Following Bike Accidents

Hit-and-Run 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?

The San Francisco law firm of Weber of Weber & Nierenberg can quickly and effectively handle the full legalities of your hit and run bike accident case or other type of bike accident. Attorney Joseph S. Nierenberg have handled hundreds of accident claims and have accomplished a track record that includes countless six- and seven-figure settlements and verdicts.

One common challenge in bike accidents is a driver who leaves the scene. It is difficult to resolve complex insurance issues, especially when you are recovering from a serious injury.

We have a broad and comprehensive understanding of insurance policies as they relate to bicycle hit-and-run accidents. 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.

Whichever insurer is responsible for your injuries, it will have a vested interest in minimizing its exposure to costs, and claim denials are common. Once we identify the responsible insurer(s), we can build a strongest-possible claim and work to recover your full and fair compensation.

For more information regarding a hit-and-run bike accident or any other type of accident, email us or call 1-866-288-6010.

Uninsured Lexus Driver Strikes and Injures San Francisco Bicyclist

A recent auto – bicycle accident in San Francisco illustrates a number of the legal and practical problems that can follow in the aftermath of the crash. As reported last month in the San Francisco Examiner, a 45-year-old bicyclist ran a red light on Sixth Street and was struck by a Lexus traveling on Mission Street. The bicyclist was hospitalized with an undisclosed injury.

Bicyclist Ran Red Light, Suspended Driver Uninsured: Who Wins?

Because a San Francisco police sergeant witnessed the accident in its entirety, both the bicyclist and the Lexus driver will need to consider the police eyewitness version of the accident as the operative story unless other credible witnesses can be found to contest any of the main details. Because the bicyclist ran the light, at least as far as the police witness saw it, the driver could develop a strong comparative negligence defense. In other words, if the accident was held primarily to be the bicyclist’s fault, his claim for damages could be seriously weakened.

On the other hand, the driver might have had a clear opportunity to avoid the accident, even though the bike rider did not belong in the intersection. If forensic analysis of the accident scene turns up no evidence of braking or evasive maneuvering by the driver prior to impact, he might still be found liable for negligence.

An important complication that will very likely come up in any litigation of the accident concerns the driver’s suspended license and lack of insurance. He also had false registration information on his license plate. Although the bicyclist can try to collect any damages he can prove from the driver directly, there will be no liability insurance available to cover his claims.

Experienced personal injury lawyers know better than to give up under these facts. The bicyclist’s injuries might very well be covered under his own auto policy’s uninsured motorist provisions, and his own health insurance or even home-owner’s insurance might also cover certain expenses, lost income or other losses.
