Dealing with Insurance Companies After an Accident

Unfortunately, most drivers who cause bicycle accidents blame the entire accident on the cyclist. In most cases, the cyclist will need to prove that he or she was obeying all traffic laws and riding defensively at the time of the accident. Drivers are still responsible for avoiding cyclists and other motorists on the road.

Bicycle Accident ClaimNormally, the driver's insurance company will conduct their own investigation of the accident in an effort to defend their insured driver from paying a claim or lawsuit. The insurance company wants to limit their liability and reduce their financial obligation to you. You shouldn't offer information to the other insurer without a lawyer by your side.

Attorney Maria Gerber, founder of Gerber Law, understands the tactics and strategies that insurance companies use to minimize their responsibility in an accident. Ms. Gerber can fight back, proving that you suffered financial loss from a serious accident and that the driver or the liable party needs to pay.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Florida

Bicycle accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons, including:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Drivers making illegal turns
  • Opening parked car doors
  • Weather
  • Intentional harm to cyclists
  • Failure to avoid bike lanes

Most often, drivers don't see a cyclist because they are looking down at their phones or they are using a GPS system. They may make a turn, failing to notice a bicyclist crossing the intersection. Whatever the reason for your bicycle accident, if you have been severely injured, let Ms. Gerber help seek justice and financial recovery.
