Everyone knows insurance is available for purchase to cover a car on car collision; it is a state law requirement. So what coverage is available for a bicyclist? Comprehensive bicycle insurance is not sold in the United States unlike some European countries. What happens when a person on a bicycle is injured, or hit by a car? For a car on bicyclist collision the driver's liability insurance can cover the bicyclist's injuries. However, what if the driver's insurance is not enough or the driver doesn't have any insurance?

While everyone knows car insurance covers the car, most people are not aware that the car insurance can cover medical bills. There are two parts to an insurance claim for a car wreck.

It is important to understand that these insurance representatives have adverse interests and are agents of a profit-motivated insurance company. It is common for the insurance adjusters to suggest that the injury victim not contact a lawyer and that people are better off dealing directly with the insurance company. This is all in an effort to try and get the injury victim to settle quickly for an inadequate amount. For the reasons stated below, it is strongly suggested that injury victims ignore any quick settlement offers or advice from adverse parties.
