Complex insurance issues can arise when a person is injured in an accident while riding a scooter, moped or bicycle. Often, these people are hit by underinsured motorists or in hit-and-runs. If this has happened to you, you can make a claim under your auto insurance policy. However, various insurance issues can affect your ability to recover your losses. As a partner at the law firm of Nowlan & Mouat LLP, Rock County personal injury attorney Steve Caya provides comprehensive help to people injured in scooter, moped and bike accidents.
Hurt in a scooter, moped or bicycle accident?
Schedule your free initial consultation by calling Steve Caya at 608-531-6252 or toll free 1-800-754-8110. You can also submit an online contact form. Evening, weekend, and off-site appointments are available.
What happens in the first meeting?
When you speak with Steve Caya for the first time, he will inform you of your legal rights. A detailed history of your bicycle accident will be taken. The following information will be requested:
- Police reports, photos, witness names
- Insurance information
- A log of time missed from work because of the accident and your past medical history.
Information will be gathered and Steve will talk to you about your legal rights under Wisconsin law and the types of compensation available.
We handle all communication with your insurance company
All communication with the insurance companies will be handled by our law office. In fact, insurance companies can no longer go through the client, and if they do contact you, you can tell them to call our office. Many injured clients feel immediately relieved by this.
No fee unless recovery is obtained
We handle scooter, moped and bicycle accident claims on a contingency fee arrangement. You have no out-of-pocket risk; we are paid only if recovery is obtained on your behalf.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Losses
Scooters, mopeds and bikes are smaller than most other motorized equipment on the road. They can be difficult to see, are often driven by young adults, can easily be chased by dogs, travel at lower speeds and may not always have the best equipment. As an experienced attorney with over 25 years experience with bicycle accident claims, Steve Caya will sort through all the issues related to your case and seek fair compensation for your injuries.
Under the Moped Act in Wisconsin, an insurance company cannot use the fact that you were not wearing a helmet to reduce your recovery. While it is advisable to help prevent head injury, it cannot be used against you in an injury claim.
