Question:

Should I talk to the insurance company after a bicycle accident?

Answer:

If you’re here, chances are you were involved in an accident where you were a bicyclist struck by a motor vehicle in New York. The question I often get is, “Is it okay if I talk to the insurance company of the motor vehicle that struck me?” The answer is no.Bicycle Accidents and Insurance CompaniesWhat you want to do is retain competent council and let the attorney talk to the insurance company. The problem with you talking to the insurance company is that the insurance company may ask you some key questions that may make your case more difficult to prosecute down the road. The attorney will know what those key questions are and will make sure that you answer those questions properly, if it’s necessary for you to talk to the insurance company. You want to retain council as quickly as possible and have the attorney deal with the insurance company.
