What To Do If You Are Approached By The Other Party’s Insurer
If you are involved in a bike accident involving a motor vehicle, you may be approached by the driver’s insurers with an offer of compensation.
Although the idea of a speedy settlement may be tempting, it is made because it is in their best interests – and not necessarily in yours.
The insurer’s offer is likely to be at the lower end of the compensation guidelines. Pain and suffering and any other Out-Of-Pocket Expenses incurred as a result of your bike accident are rarely taken into consideration.
These include the cost of travel for treatment or rehabilitation, payment for any medicines and any loss of earnings. It also covers the cost of any care you require while recovering from your cycling injuries.
This may be personal help with tasks such as bathing and cooking and can include the cost of carrying out any jobs you would normally be responsible for, such as housework or gardening, even if this was carried out be a family member.
