When a bicyclist is hit by a car, serious injuries or death often result. The bicyclist or his or her family can make a claim against the driver, and the driver's employer if the driver was running a company errand. If the bicyclist had uninsured motorist coverage on his or her own vehicle, then the cyclist may be able to make an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim.
