Bike Accident Compensation
If you have been seriously injured, you may be wondering if you are entitled to bike accident compensation. You may have a claim. Here is what you need to know.
Bike Accident Compensation | Can I Get Compensated if I’m Partially at Fault?
The answer to this is yes. In New York State, even if you’re 99% at fault, you can still file a claim for that 1% that you’re not liable. Very few cases will have you be 99% liable. That’s just in theory; it’s not reality. Even though you think that you may have caused it or it may be a little your fault, or anything like that, that doesn’t mean you don’t have a case.
Seek out an experienced personal injury lawyer. They will review your case, and he or she will determine whether or not you have a viable case. Even if you caused part of the accident – any part of the accident – you can still have a case in New York.
Bike Accident Compensation | What Types of Compensation is Available?
If you’re seriously injured in a bicycle accident in New York, there are many benefits available to you. The first and most important one is personal injury protection, or no-fault insurance. This is the insurance that will pay your hospital bills, whether emergency room or admission. It will pay for all the tests they do for you in the hospital. It will pay for your doctor visits. It will pay for all the tests that the doctor does for you and every medical need that you have. It will pay a certain amount of your lost wages and will also pay a certain amount of your incidental expenses. When you’re hit by a motor vehicle in New York, you get these benefits. It’s important that you hire a New York bicycle accident lawyer who files the necessary documents so that these rights are secured.
You will also be able to receive payment for your pain and suffering, lost wages, excess of lost wages by PIP, and any other injuries you may sustain due to this car accident. When you go to court, you can make money in many ways, and many different levels. There was a case I remember settled for about $800,000. The injury was only valued at $200,000, but the person proved that they lost their business because of the accident, and for this loss of the business they made $600,000. There are many avenues available to you to get money for the pain and the other injuries you sustain and damages you sustain due to this accident. That’s why it’s important that you hire an experienced attorney who can get you everything and every single penny that is due you.
