Should I Trust an Insurance Company?

Bicycle Insurance Compensation – Serving All of California

Absolutely not! Insurance companies are in the business to make money, they are not there to assist you. In order to avoid paying for the full extent and treatment of your personal injuries, insurance companies often try to settle quickly after a bicycle accident, before the full extent of your injuries are apparent. The insurance companies are very sophisticated in how they go about setting up a claim, but their number one goal is to pay you as little as possible and even nothing if they can get away with that! If you try to go up against a large insurance company without knowing the system, you are not going to be treated fairly and you will not obtain the superior compensation you deserve. Don’t be one of their victims.

Dealing with bicycle insurance companies


If a negligent vehicle operator causes an injury but is not insured, he or she may be required to pay for the damages resulting from the accident they caused. However, if that person is covered by automobile liability insurance, his or her insurance company will be responsible for paying the damages that the injured person proves are caused by the accident based on available insurance. However, the insurance companies fight injury cases vigorously because they want to avoid paying money to you. Unless the injured person can prove that the driver was negligent, that the negligence actually caused the accident, and that their injuries were caused by the accident, an insurance company will never pay. Even when liability for the accident is completely clear, insurance companies very often dispute the amount of damages an injured person must prove – not only the amount of damages, but the extent of the damages as well.

Working with an insurance company can be a trying and complicated experience that leaves you feeling disheartened and exhausted. If your only recourse for recovery is through the liable party’s insurance provider, it can be difficult to receive the compensation that you deserve. Insurance companies have vast resources at their disposal and can utilize these resources to defend their interests and minimize their costs. Oftentimes, insurance companies will offer quick settlements that provide a promise of cash but in truth are insufficient to cover your expenses. In such instances, it is important that you seek legal counsel and representation to help ensure that you are justly and fairly compensated. Doing so will save you peace of mind and help guarantee that the insurance companies fulfill their legal obligations.
