Bicycle Accident FAQ
Who is at fault if a car hits a bicycle?
Liability in a bicycle accident varies from case to case. The fault will fall on whichever party caused the bicycle accident due to their negligence. Sometimes, the fault is divided between the bicyclist and the driver if they both made an unsafe mistake.
How do I file a claim after a bicycle accident?
You can file a claim with the help of a professional lawyer like Attorney Jeff Metler. He can review your accident, calculate your damages, and file your claim against the correct parties. Afterward, there could be settlement negotiations to get you the money you deserve without needing to go to court.
How long does a bicycle accident claim take to end?
A bicycle accident case could take a few months if the defendant’s insurance company agrees that you were not at fault and there is no contest. If evidence of liability or the extent of your injuries is challenged, though, then the case could take more than a year to conclude.
I was hit when I wasn’t using hand signals –
can I still sue?
You should use all hand signals required of you whenever you are riding your bicycle on a public road in Provo or elsewhere in Utah. However, forgetting to use a hand signal does not disqualify you from filing an injury claim after an accident. It would probably increase your liability or fault, though.
