San Jose Bicyclist Killed In Hit-And-Run Crash

Posted on in Personal Injury

The Contra Costa Times reported on some tragic news Friday, February 12. According to police, a male cyclist was killed early Friday morning in a hit-and-run accident near Driftwood Drive and Winchester Boulevard in West San Jose.

The cyclist was hit by a red compact car which is believed to be a Honda Del Sol, which left the scene headed northbound shortly after midnight.

This tragedy illustrates two important issues. One, despite efforts to make motorists more aware of the rights of cyclists, bicycle accidents continue to happen on our streets. Two, the issues facing accident victims are compounded in cases of hit-and-run or cases involving uninsured or underinsured motorists.

Options For Recovery

It is important to realize that you can likely recover financial compensation for your damages even if the driver who hit you is unknown or lacks adequate insurance coverage. This is good information to have but we hope you will never need it.

You can collect on uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage from your own auto insurance policy (if you have it) to provide the financial resources you need to recover from your injuries and pay your bills.

Speaking of your own auto insurance, you can use your insurance to pay your medical bills after a bicycle accident. Your insurance company will be reimbursed by the settlement or jury award obtained in your successful personal injury claim.
