Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Injured While Riding a Bike or Walking? Call Us Today.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, you may be surprised to discover how complicated the rules become when you are seeking payment for your medical bills. Although you may be able to recover money under the personal injury protection (PIP) provisions of your own auto policy, things aren't always so black and white.

Recovering money damages will depend upon the exact nature of your accident, whether a commercial vehicle or private car was involved, and even whether there is some liability on the part of a property owner. Your Morristown bicycle and pedestrian Injury attorney will need to understand how to seek compensation from every insured party.

What About Your Own Insurance Policy?

If you have been injured in a car accident, your own car policy would normally pay the medical bills. But with pedestrian accidents, the rules are a little different. You will not be able to collect for medical bill coverage from your own policy unless a commercial vehicle was at fault.

Burakoff, P.A., we have extensive experience working with insurance claims and have helped thousands of accident victims collect the money they need for medical bills, lost earnings and other financial losses.
