THE DRIVER’S EXCUSE
“The driver of the car was looking left and turning right!
As a bicycle accident victim you might hear the motorist excuses:
- She ran right into me!
- The bicyclist came out of nowhere
- They were in my blind spot
- There was too much sun glare
- I was careful, but looking in the other direction
Although insurance companies may attempt to put the blame on the bicyclist in bicycle accidents, these excuses are not a defense to a negligent motorist whose vehicle injures a bicyclist.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Bicyclist victims, whether adults or children, often suffer serious injuries, including head or brain injuries, orthopedic injuries and soft tissue injuries. We understand that you may incur large medical expenses, finance stress, anxiety and an uncertain prognosis. Many of our clients request a referral to a medical specialist. We have years of experience in dealing with these issues and will provide top-notch representation and helpful, courteous assistance in all matters related to your claim.
WHY EXPERIENCE COUNTS
An accident involving a vehicle striking a bicyclist often results in life-altering, and sometimes, fatal injuries. Bicycle accidents can be more complex than car accident cases.
Bicycle accident victims are often immediately transported to an emergency room. You may not have the opportunity to explain what happened to the investigating police officer. The police officer is likely to obtain the facts of the accident from the automobile driver, the driver’s passenger, or witnesses who may not tell or know the complete story. The police investigation may be inaccurate and jeopardize your claim. Bicycle accidents involving serious injuries are almost never routine and are vigorously defended by insurance companies.
It is important that you or a family member retain an experienced bicycle accident lawyer at the earliest possible time. Alex & Saavedra will send an investigator to interview all the witnesses while the accident is fresh in their memory and retain other experts.
An accident reconstructionist will visit the bicycle accident scene to measure and compare his findings to the traffic accident report. Often times physical evidence at the scene such as debris, tire marks and other witness marks are overlooked by the investigating officer. Our experts scientifically establish the dynamics of the accident and who was at fault. Most of the time, it is the motorist who was careless or reckless in causing bicycle accidents. The key to a successful result is representation by an experienced bicycle accident lawyer with a history of obtaining outstanding results in bicycle accident cases.

WHAT IF THE DRIVER IS UNINSURED OR UNDERINSURED?
In Arizona, a significant number of irresponsible motorists do not carry liability insurance. Fortunately, your personal car insurance may have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This means that you can bring a claim against your own insurance company for the injuries and economic losses caused by the uninsured or underinsured motorist. If you purchased this UM or UIM coverage, you have paid the premium so do not be reluctant to file a claim with your insurance company. Importantly, the claim will not increase your insurance premiums. We will help you file an uninsured or underinsured bicycle accidents claim.
We recommend that you always purchase uninsured and underinsured coverage. It is very inexpensive and offer a great deal of protection to you and your family.
