Replacing a Competitive Bicycle after an AccidentPosted on September 24, 2012
Your competitive bicycle is so well built that it probably qualifies for use in the Olympic Games. Your sport is not widely understood in America, and most people have no idea of what you had to pay for your bike. Prices are unfamiliar to most insurance companies as well, and that makes it difficult to get compensated for that part of your bicycle injury insurance claim. Attorney Bill Shirer at Cyclist at Law is an authority on bicycle accident personal injury, and he can help you.
The limited exposure most Americans have to bicycle racing helps them understand that bikes take a beating in a race. The intricate mechanisms that make a bike achieve great speeds on difficult terrains are not visible to anyone but you. The records that you have on your bike are helpful in filing a claim. If your records are not complete, you may find that your local dealer can find your original invoice in a computer data file. The burden is on you to prove the value of a bike that is unfamiliar to your insurance company.
