San Diego Bike Hit and Run Attorney

Victim of a Hit and Run? Call (888) 233-5020

Hit and run drivers represent the height of irresponsibility. Not only have they hit and injured a bicyclist, they then speed off, further endangering the health and life of the victim. Under state law, any person involved in an accident is required to stop and render aid. After an impact with a bicycle, the person is often seriously injured; emergency services must be called immediately to provide lifesaving treatment. A person left on the road, whether adult or child, may be suffering life-threatening injuries.

What To Do in a Bike Hit and Run Accident

After a bike hit and run, the most urgent issue is to get medical treatment. Another person, possibly a witness to the accident, will usually contact 911 to get emergency services while the negligent driver flees the scene. Sadly, in many of these cases, the bicyclist is seriously or fatally injured. Those who survive may be facing months of treatment, and may never again enjoy life as they had prior to the accident. What are the options for getting compensation? In some cases, the negligent driver is identified. He or she may have been drunk, driving without insurance, or on a suspended license, making the legal situation more complex. The bicyclist’s own insurances may be the only available option for seeking help in paying for medical treatment and care.

If the driver has fled the scene of the accident, it is imperative that law enforcement is contacted so that a police report can be filed, and the driver sought and hopefully identified. Contacting police is extremely important in any hit and run, including bicycle accidents. Your own insurance companies must also be contacted. If you own a vehicle, your auto insurance may provide coverage, and your health insurance covers medical treatment.

Surprisingly, your own insurance company may be difficult to deal with, even if you have faithfully paid your premiums. It is advised that a hit and run bike accident case is managed by a skilled San Diego bicycle accident attorney. Insurance company adjusters work to reduce the value of claims. Only a lawyer can review your insurances and determine the coverage that you carry, and your ability to access the necessary funds to move forward.
