Helping Injured Bicyclists Get the Medical Benefits They Deserve
If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, your first question may be how you will pay your medical bills and get compensated for your lost wages. In Oregon, the answer to that question depends on a number of factors that can produce counterintuitive results.
At Berkshire Ginsberg, LLC, our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of bicycle accident insurance coverage in Oregon. We can help you pursue the benefits you deserve from the insurance company that is required to provide them. Depending on your case, this may include:
- Your PIP policy: If you have a car that is insured in Oregon, your mandatory personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, also known as no-fault coverage, will pay your medical expenses after a bicycle collision, even though you were not driving your car.
- Your health insurance: If you do not have PIP coverage but you do have health insurance, your health insurance is responsible for paying your medical expenses.
- The other driver’s PIP policy: If you do not have PIP coverage or health insurance, the other driver’s PIP coverage is responsible for paying your medical expenses. This rule applies even if you were at fault for the collision or no determination of fault is made.
These benefits are important in the short term, but in the long term, in order to get full compensation for pain and suffering, you may need to pursue a personal injury claim against the other driver. If so, we will diligently fight for the maximum money damages you deserve.
