Motor vehicles accident between bike and car.? related questions

  • 1Motor vehicles accident between bike and car.?

    I just had an accident this morning with my bike . I was driving normally around 50-60 km / h , and suddenly the car in front of me began to decrease. I thought I was going from left to park or something, and I decided to catch up from the right . Did not match any cars opposite of me , and not for the turn signals to the woman in front of me . While I was beating her suddenly turn right and hit me right on their doors . I tried to stop , but nothing helped in this situation because the distance between us was a few meters. Everything went well the ambulance arrived, I was taken to hospital , police , etc. The woman said she was surprised she did not see me coming. That's all I know for now . What happens is that I have no insurance on my bike , and I guess she has insurance on his car ( was a black mercedes s ) . What interests me is whose fault is if the police can not figure out why she has become the turn signals or not. Will I pay reparations insurance company , or not ? The most important thing that I 'm fine , I have only minor injuries to my knees , nothing serious . If not the team do not know where I would be now . thanks

  • 4Who is at fault in this bike/car accident in WA?

    A little over a month my boyfriend and I were involved in a motorcycle accident / car. MY BF was driving and came to a man on a motorcycle . We were entering an occupied blind intersection after stopping at a stop sign . The guy who would hit the wrong way and not wearing a helmet . The man refused to involve the police because she was wearing a helmet , which I belive is the state law . Both the car and the motorcycle were damaged. My boyfriend offered to pay for the bike , but the man gave him a ridiculous figure that is more than the bike was even worth . It turns out that instead of just fixing the folded edge (our fault ) had his bike every service . New tires , brakes , everything. Now he is threatening our safety and our property . So my questions are 1) Who is technically at fault here ? The driver and the rider ? Meaning of the law considered in fault 2) Do we have a moral obligation to pay your bicycle , now that we are threatened and that he was going against the traffic (which is against the law ) . Note : It has threatened both my son and I now . We happened to be passengers at the time of the accident . 3) If we have to pay for anything, that would be admitting fault? Besides, what would prevent him from milking this thing and ask for more? 4) At this point we need to involve the police ? It threatened , but did not know what reasons has . It has also threatened to take my boyfriend to small claims court . Is it too late to involve the police and if not, what would be able to do? We saved voiemails their threats and have taken on the property near the car . 5) in case you have to pay for the damage to the vehicle if , in fact , proved to be at fault?

  • 5How does one sue for a auto/bike accident?

    I was in an accident earlier this week, as I was riding my bike and was hit by a car . It was totally the driver's fault - I was in the bike lane , my right of way - was turning left and did not see me . I suffered many injuries but no broken bones . The doctor is in the ER did not do a thorough examination of the body from injury and sent me home with a glass still in my hair and my arms and untreated wounds. My parents are worried that it was not fully treated and that these injuries are going to cause problems in the future and I will have to try and then have no way to pay for it . At this time your insurance is supposed to pay for everything , but what about in the future ? If I have a lawyer , would sue the driver or the insurance company ?

  • 8Motor vehicle accident with a leased car?

    I have a new lease on 2012 Nissan Sentra MN . I took possession of the vehicle within two months before I was involved in a car accident and no one was injured . The other driver ran through a stop sign and hit my car , I had the right of way . The other driver was cited for distracted driving and the damage was $ 6,000. The car is being repaired and my insurance deductible is $ 250 and the lease had gap insurance . I have several questions : 1. Nissan Will require me to pay for the entire vehicle , even if my insurance says it's not a total loss ? 2. Because there were no personal injuries in the accident , do I have any recourse with the other driver ? 3. What other people offer advice ? 4. Is there something I 'm not considering ? I would prefer not to sue , but I would like to know what to expect .

  • 10Help with Bike/Car Accident Insurance Claim?

    The accident : 14 months ago , when I was riding my bike , a conductor connected to the right just in front of me and my bike / body slammed into the back of your car . I can provide more details if necessary . The consequences : Bike damage repairs = $ 200. My back was in pain for a couple of weeks . Nothing debilitating , but noticeable . A few months later , re-injured my back playing golf ( not usually play ) , which makes me wonder if I will continue to suffer from back problems minor or major , as a result of this accident . The verdict : I was shocked when Progressive decided it was shared by negligence . The driver lied about how this happened. And my testimony fell off the face of the earth ... But why do I have ridden in a car ? My question is : On principle , I do not settle the claim at first. Now , there's a new adjuster wants to settle the case . He is willing to take care of my expenses bike and my medical expenses . It also appears that I feel out of the kind of cash settlement, one that I want. I just wanted to wait to see if my back got worse . But , since you probably can not find my control again ... and the statute of limitations ends in 9 months ... ... I guess it must conform. Can anyone suggest if I have any alternative to the resolution now? If not , any suggestions on what to order ?
