The Two Biggest Bike Accident Scams
Bike accidents are back enough, but sometimes they aren’t what they seem. Staged accidents and false claims can put you in a dangerous situation simply to try and get money from your insurance provider. These are some common scams that you can prevent with proper action.
1. Phantom Pain
This is one of the most common ways to scam insurance. After a collision a person will claim to have back or neck injury. Such pain is hard to prove or disprove medically, creating a gray area that is difficult to navigate in court. One of the best ways to spot or prevent this issue is to keep a careful eye on the other party and file a police report. If they behave inconsistently, they may be faking the pain. In low damage accidents, a police report can provide concrete evidence that serious injury was unlikely.
2. A Missing Person
In some cases, a person who wasn’t involved in the accident will make an injury or damage claim. This again can be avoided by good record keeping. When the police are involved, they will take contact information of everyone present, so their reports are the most surefire way to invalidate these false claims.
Several other frauds are abundant, but they tend to apply to larger vehicles. If you find you need a bike accident lawyer in Clinton, look no further than this website.
