At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, in Provo, we hear it so often. A biker calls us to ask about recovering money damages from a car driver who left the scene of the accident. Often, the driver doesn't think the biker was injured. More often, the driver blames the biker for the accident and doesn't want a claim filed against his or her auto insurance.

Unfortunately, some car drivers leave the scene of a bike accident without ever realizing an accident occurred. After all, no contact was made between car and bike, and the rider took evasive action to avoid a collision. Under Utah law, you're still entitled to make a claim under your own auto insurance policy. Technically, any motor vehicle driver's actions that cause a biker to take evasive action resulting in an injury to the biker may be considered negligent behavior on the part of the driver. In short, if a car put you in a dangerous riding situation and you suffered an injury because of it, you can fight to claim insurance benefits to compensate you for your injuries.
