A Tallahassee Bicycle Accident Attorney Explains Your Options

It is legally required in Florida for car owners to have automobile insurance. However, many people in urban cities enjoy riding their bicycles to and from work. Many of these bicyclists fail to consider their own insurance needs and often go without it. An experienced Tallahassee bicycle accident attorney will tell any bicyclist that they should consider having uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. In the following video, attorney Eric Milles details what type of automobile insurance a bicyclist should have to protect them after a bicycle accident.

Video Transcript:

The most important coverage a bicyclist can have is undersinured or uninsured motorist insurance. This coverage will apply if a bicyclist is in an accident with a motorist who is negligent and that motorist does not have enough insurance or has no insurance. So that is one thing to definitely keep in mind and to try and secure that type of insurance. Additionally, you may be eligible for a personal injury protection claim on your own insurance which can cover lost wages as well as medical expenses.
