Seeking Compensation for your Accident
According to California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 22 people were injured in Tustin bicycle accidents recently.
Throughout Orange County, 12 people were killed and 1,199 were injured in bike crashes during that same year. Bisnar Chase's Bicycle Accident Lawyers understand that being injured in a bike accident can drastically affect the physical and emotional state of a victim. Costs can be expensive and you may be wondering how you can afford to recover from the accident.
When you file a personal injury claim you can be compensated for the following losses:
All motorists are legally required to remain at the scene of the crash when someone has been injured. California Vehicle Code 20001 (a) states:
"The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident."
A hit-and-run is a term used when a vehicle hits a car or person and then leaves the scene immediately after the collision. If an animal is involved in a hit-and-run some states would consider that a legal issue as well. Few states would also provide relief for drivers who have left the accident in order to seek immediate help.
It can be complicated to determine the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor hit-and-run. The difference lies in the damages that have been acquired in the accident. A hit-and-run misdemeanor involves solely the damage of property and the hit-and-run felony concerns the injury of a person. If you have experienced a serious bicycle accident injury there three factors to take into account when filing an injury claim.
3 Questions to answer before hiring a Tustin bicycle accident attorney:
1. Who was the person at fault?
2. How much damage took place?
3. What was the level of severity of the injuries?
Bicycle Hit-and-Run Injuries
Victims of bicycle hit-and-run accidents are often left on or alongside the roadway. If no one else witnessed the crash, the victim may be left there without medical attention. In cases involving head injuries and spinal cord injuries, every second counts. The longer they are left without care or medical attention, their chance of survival diminishes.
This is why drivers have a moral and legal obligation to notify the authorities immediately following the crash.
Bicyclists can suffer life-changing or fatal injuries if a vehicle strikes them. Below is a collection of common injuries that bicycle collision victims can suffer from.
7 Common Bike Incident Injuries:
All of these injuries require immediate medical attention. Victims of hit-and-run accidents are also in danger of being struck a second time. Victims who are struck a second time are likely to suffer injuries that often prove fatal. It is unacceptable to leave a bicyclist without stopping, calling the authorities and offering assistance to protect the victim from further harm.
Obtain Fair Compensation
There are legal options available for victims of bicycle accidents involving a hit-and-run driver. If the authorities track down the motorist, then, financial compensation may be available through a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.
Unfortunately, not all drivers are found. In such cases, a skilled Tustin bicycle accident attorney can help the victim recover losses through his or her own insurance policy.
