What Will the Insurance Company do for the Person Who Caused My Bicycle Accident Do About My Claim?
After the insurance company is notified about your bicycle accident, they will open a file on you and your case. A claims manager or claims supervisor will assign an insurance claims adjuster to be in charge of your bicycle accident claim, though the same adjuster will not always see your case through to completion, and other adjusters may be assigned to your case as it progresses. The claims adjuster will first contact your bicycle accident lawyer.
The adjuster will then investigate your bicycle accident case, trying to determine:
- Who is at fault in your bicycle accident.
- Whether you are partially at fault for your bicycle accident injuries.
- When and where the bicycle accident took place.
- Police reports, DMV reports, and other reports that have been filed.
- Potential witnesses to the bicycle accident.
The insurance claims adjuster will also obtain medical reports and other reports dealing with your bicycle accident injuries. This includes all the bills you’ve incurred a result of the treatment of your bicycle accident injury, including medical and hospital bills, as well as bills for prescriptions and therapy you’ve received.
If lost earnings are an issue in your bicycle accident claim, the insurance claims adjuster will also review documents about your time lost from work. It is important to keep accurate records of the expenses resulting from your bicycle accident, including medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. Your bicycle accident lawyer will be able to advise you on the best way to keep these records.
