Can Bicycle Riders File A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Generally, yes. When another party is found to be the negligent party causing a traffic accident to occur, you can file a lawsuit against them. This is especially important for bicyclists since they don’t usually have auto insurance. Thus, taking action against an at-fault driver is imperative when your health insurance doesn’t cover the injuries you sustain from the accident.
