Bicycling is a popular activity in Phoenix. However, many motorists fail to pay attention to bike riders, which leads to accidents. Bike riders often sustain severe injuries since they have nothing protecting them, and even low impact collisions can cause serious injuries. When a motorist causes an accident with a bicyclist, the rider can file a claim for damages. These damages include medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, etc.
It is important to know that the Arizona Vehicle Code also applies to bike riders. Therefore, you should be sure to always obey traffic laws while riding your bike. Also, it is important to wear a helmet. Although a helmet won’t always protect from injury in an accident, it may reduce the threat of head trauma.
It is also possible that a motorist involved in an accident with a bike rider may be uninsured or underinsured. Phoenix Personal Injury Attorneys can help you make an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company.
