Although bicycling can be a healthy, fun, and convenient way of getting around, it can also be very dangerous. Bicycle accidents can result in serious injuries or fatalities, leading to extensive medical bills, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and many other burdens.
As a personal injury firm, we often get questions such as, “What if the driver who hit me was uninsured?” In California, and other states, uninsured drivers are on the rise. It can cause a lot of stress to victims because how can one be held accountable if he or she does not have insurance?
Luckily, there are other options that your bicycle accident lawyer can resolve to, including suing the uninsured driver and going after their personal assets. Another option that you may resolve to is obtaining uninsured motorist coverage for your own insurance policy, often referred to as UIM coverage. UIM coverage protects you if you are involved in an accident with someone who does not have insurance and he or she is at fault.
