According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there were 840 cyclists killed in motor vehicle crashes recently. Most of those collisions occurred at highway intersections or on the roadway.
Although it may seem strange cyclists who are injured in a collision with a car can have their medical bills paid by the cyclist’s own auto insurance, provided they have a car that is insured. Any pain and suffering payments for the cyclist’s injuries would come from the automobile driver who injured the cyclist.
The damages available to an injured cyclist include not only a payment of out-of-pocket expenses and damage to the bicycle there is also compensation for pain, suffering, scarring and lost wages. Any cyclist who is injured in a collision with a car who wants to discuss their injuries and possible outcomes should contact the Law Office of Lisko and Associates for a free consultation.
