Does my own automobile insurance cover me for accidents when I am on my bicycle?

In the State of Florida your own automobile insurance will cover you if you're involved in a accident on your bicycle as long as the accident involves another motor vehicle. In Florida we have what's called PIP or no-fault insurance which will cover up to $10,000 of your medical treatment or lost wages if you're involved in an accident involving a motor vehicle in any way, shape or form. In addition, if you don't have PIP or no-fault insurance of your own and you don't own a vehicle, you'll actually qualify to use the PIP or no-fault insurance of the other driver that was involved in the accident.

In addition if you have uninsured motorist coverage, that will be covered as well as a potential claim against the other driver's BI or bodily injury insurance coverage so there are many types of insurance. It's a little bit of a complicated insurance scenario when it comes to bicyclists but it's something that can be unwound and we can figure out exactly how much coverage you have.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
