What happens when a hit and run bicycle accident in Anaheim or anywhere in Orange County results in severe injuries? A bicyclist was critically injured recently in Anaheim when his bike was struck by a silver car at the intersection of Clementine and Sycamore Streets. The bicyclist suffered severe head trauma and leg injuries, and was transported to a local hospital. We are thankful that his condition has stabilized, and will keep him and the family in our thoughts hoping for a full recovery.
Anaheim police located the hit and run driver who was responsible for the accident. They arrested the driver and charged him with driving under the influence and felony hit and run. What would the injured victim and his family have done if the driver could not be identified? Who would pay for his injuries?
When a hit and run bicycle accident in Anaheim or anywhere in Orange County results in severe injuries the “Uninsured/Under-Insured Motorist” or UM/UIM section of your own automobile insurance covers you in these circumstances. Many people are unaware that they have coverage in a hit-and-run, even if they are not in their car. Holding your own insurance company accountable can be quite challenging and frustrating, and many of my clients have expressed shock and disappointment over how they were treated by their own insurance company.
My name is Rivers J Morrell, and I have more than 40 years of experience and successful results in these types of accidents. I work to ensure that you recover as completely as possible for what has happened, so that you can move forward with your life. If you or someone you love has been injured while riding a bicycle or as a pedestrian, even in a hit and run, I invite you to review the strong recommendations of former clients and the legal industry and contact us or call to speak with me personally for a free and substantial consultation at (949) 305-1400.
Finally, I strongly recommend that all Californians maximize the amount of their UM/UIM coverage. Between the value of your car, the other cars on the road and the cost of recovering from these types of injuries you need the maximum coverage possible. It is one of the least expensive forms of insurance you can buy, and well worth it.
