Unfortunately, bicycle accident are not an uncommon occurrence in Hartford and Connecticut overall as many people choose to take to the roads on their bicycles not only for exercise and recreation, but also as a “green” mode of transportation. Connecticut averages about 650 bicycle accidents per year with 85% of those accidents resulting in injury.
Despite the many safety precautions taken by bicyclists, collisions with cars inevitably occur, often times as the result of the driver negligence, failing to share the road and/or obey right-of-way laws. The outcomes of bicycle accidents involving cars or trucks almost always result in severe and debilitating injuries and could lead to long-term complications and financial losses for the victims and their families.
Investigations of bicycle accidents can be complicated by the inherent bias of the public and law enforcement against cyclists. Insurance companies will start an investigation immediately and seek to resolve the claim quickly by offering the lowest possible settlement in order to avoid future medical expenses, complications, and lost wages. Your coverage plays an important role in how the case unfolds. They have vast experience evaluating claims and without the expert representation, you’re likely to forego significant restitution.
