Car Insurance and Coverage for Cyclists
Did you know the right kind of car insurance can cover you in the event your injured on your bike? That is correct, car insurance, not bicycle insurance, can cover your medical costs and other potential damages if you are injured by a negligent driver. This is especially true if you are injured by a driver on the road. In almost every case involving a driver vs. a cyclist, the driver of the car or truck will win every day. That is to say you as the cyclist will be much more injured than anyone else involved because you are the most exposed and least protected. Don’t take any chances out there; check your policies to ensure you have the proper coverage to insure you from injury on your bike. Most insurance policies do not do a great job of explaining this type of coverage or clarifying benefits in their written material so make sure you call your carrier if you have any questions whatsoever. Of course, a Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer at our office can go through your policy with you to determine your coverage.
