Can Bicyclists File A Personal Injury Claim Against the At-Fault Driver’s Auto Insurance?
Yes, they can. If a bicyclist was involved in a car accident and wishes to take legal action against the at-fault driver, they can choose to pursue it directly against the at-fault driver or go through their auto insurance provider. If the bicyclist and at-fault driver are based in California, it is better to file the claim against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance. If you prefer to pursue an alternative legal action for your car accident situation as a bicyclist, call us today at (800) 310-1606 for a free consultation.
