Bicycle Accident

A bicycle accident can result in severe injury because of the bicyclists direct exposure to the bicycle, the vehicle hitting them, and the pavement. Injuries in bike accidents tend to include broken legs, broken wrists, in addition to musculoskeletal injuries. A bike injury is relatively common in Portland, where we have a number of bicycle commuters. Car drivers often do not see bicycle riders because they are looking for cars rather than bikes. When a rider is injured in a bike accident, payment of the medical expenses as you go may require your bike lawyer looking at several layers of insurance coverage, including your own automobile insurance, your health insurance, and the automobile insurance of the car that hit you. A good bicycle accident attorney will be able to get the medical coverage claim for a bike accident set up, and may be able to secure multiple layers of coverage.
