Question:

How is a bicycle accident claim different than a car accident claim?

Answer:

Differences Between a Bicycle Accident Claim and a Car Crash ClaimI recently spoke to someone from South Carolina who was in a bicycle accident, and one of the first questions that they asked was, “How is this accident different from a car wreck case?” It’s a good question. On the surface, an automobile accident is very similar to a bicycle accident. Some of the things that pop up with a bicycle accident that you may not see as often with a car wreck are the extent of the injuries. Someone on a bicycle is even less protected than someone in a car, so the injuries tend to be much greater. You also have more confusion with bicycle accidents. People on bicycles don’t know if the insurance carrier will actually pay money for an accident since they were on their bicycle. In South Carolina, bicycle accidents are treated the same way as automobile accidents in the context of making an insurance claim.

If anyone out there has been in a bicycle accident and has questions about insurance coverage and how to go about making a claim, please contact my office. We’d be more than happy to talk to you.
