How should I deal with the motorists insurance company?

In Florida, if you're a cyclist involved in an accident with a motor vehicle it's basically a good idea not to deal with the other side's insurance company as far as giving them any statements. Often times insurance companies attempt to talk injured cyclists or injured motorists into statements.

By law in Florida due to the rules of contract, you're only required to give statements to your own insurance company. You are absolutely not required to give statements to the adverse party's insurance company. It's always a good idea when those circumstances arise and you're involved in an accident, the other side's insurance company is trying to contact you, it's a good idea to hire an experienced personal injury attorney so they can prepare you to speak with the other side's insurance company.

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.
