Cyclists face inherant dangers on the roadways. Bicycle accidents occur because automobile drivers are not alert in looking out for cyclists. This is despite the many safety precautions taken by cyclists when riding.
The severe, debilitating and permanent injuries that arise from bicycle accidents with cars and trucks can leave you permanently disabled even after surgery. Determining the appropriate value of a claim for personal injury from a bike accident involving a car or truck is complicated. It involves evaluating the nature and extent of the injury, the economic losses that are recoverable, and the liability issues related to the bicycle accident.
Georgia law requires us to maintain automobile liability insurance coverage. The minimum requirements for bodily injury liability insurance coverage in Georgia are $25,000.00 per person and $50,000.00 per accident. Sometimes these limits may be insufficient to cover the claim of an injured person. This requires investigation into what other insurance is available to the responsible driver or the extent of the driver's personal assets.
