Riding your bicycle can be a fun, relaxing form of exercise; but a bike accident with a car can change your life in an instant. Bike accidents are often disastrous, given to relative size of a bicycle in comparison to a car or truck. Injuries sustained from a bicycle accident are often very serious and require extensive medical treatment. You may be wondering how to pay for all the medical bills, or how the at-fault driver may assume responsibility.
A common question for many bike accident victims is, “What if the driver is not insured?” Approximately 11 percent of drivers, or close to 1 in 10 drivers, in South Carolina are uninsured, according to the Insurance Research Council. This can create a very stressful situation for everyone involved in a bike accident.
Our accident attorneys can help you receive benefits from your uninsured motorist coverage on your own auto insurance policy in South Carolina. Every car insurance policy in South Carolina is required to have uninsured motorist coverage, which may also cover bike accidents involving other vehicles. Your auto insurance policy should offer this coverage, which could be a source of benefits if you were hit by a motorist whose insurance does not cover all damages for an accident.
