As bike lawyers, we often get calls from cyclists who have been hit by a car and who, thankfully, were not physically injured, but have been left with a damaged or destroyed bicycle or other damaged property, like a cracked helmet or broken phone. Now they’re left wondering how to get the insurance company to do the right thing and compensate them for their damage. If a bicyclist has been injured, we handle all damaged property claims as a routine part of handling a case when we represent them. But for those cyclists who only need to get reimbursed for their bicycle or other property damage, we are always on hand to give free advice on the how to go through the process without a lawyer simply because it’s not something you need a lawyer to do. The whole property damage claim process is pretty simple, although it can be slow and frustrating at times. To make it easy for you to do on your own, we put together this instructional toolkit to help you create a professional “demand for payment” letter to the insurance company to help you get compensated for your property damage. This toolkit even includes a sample letter in a Word Document format that you can edit to tailor it for your own unique situation.
