Many bicyclists don’t realize they may have insurance coverage from their own automobile insurance company that will apply in an accident with a motor vehicle such as the one described in this situation. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist an injured victim to make sure there is proper use of all possible avenues of coverage for medical bills. Also, early investigation is often important. Too often, injured victims are playing catch-up in terms of their claims because while they are focused on recovering from an injury, the insurance companies are already at work defending their own interests. It is important for injured victims to contact a plaintiffs’ personal injury attorney right away following an accident.
