Were you or a loved one injured in a bicycle accident and have questions? Check out these 3 bicycle accident tips, then call our Augusta lawyers today.
Steps After a Bicycle Accident
Through the years, we’ve represented many bicyclists that were injured by automobiles in Georgia. If you’re reading this, you may have questions or are looking for tips on how to handle a bicycle automobile case. Our first tip is to dial 9-1-1 and get the police to investigate the accident. Two, you should seek medical treatment. Our third tip is do not speak to the insurance adjuster for the motorist who hit you. Those insurance adjusters are trained to get information favorable to the insurance company and not favorable to your case.
Lastly, hire a lawyer that has experience with bicycle motorist cases. That attorney has experience in ordering medical records, investigating the accident, speaking with witnesses, ordering medical bills and presenting the damages that the bicyclist has sustained in a positive professional way to the insurance company. If the insurance company does not act in a reasonable manner in negotiating the case, then our advice is to have the attorney file a lawsuit to get fair and just compensation.

Bicycle Accident Medical Bills
We recently represented a man who had broken his leg and shoulder in a bicycle motorist accident on Walton Way in Augusta, Georgia. In our initial consultation he asked, “Who’s responsible for paying my medical bills that I’ve sustained in this accident?” If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions.
The insurance company for the motorist who is at fault in causing these injuries is responsible for paying these medical bills. If the motorist does not have enough insurance coverage, it’s possible to use the bicyclist’s uninsured motorist coverage on his automobile to help pay for the medical bills caused in this bicycle accident. It’s important to hire an attorney who is experienced in bicycle motorist cases to help analyze the different avenues for paying these medical bills.

Wrongful Death Bicycle Accident
Who is allowed to bring a wrongful death case in Georgia for a bicyclist who’s been hit by an automobile? If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions and our sympathies go out to you. We’ve handled many wrongful death cases throughout the years, and we can tell you that the answer is the next of kin would bring the wrongful death case for a bicyclist who’s killed by an automobile. The next of kin would be the spouse, the child, or a sibling.
