If you are in a roadway with moving traffic and are able to move, get to a safe location.
If you cannot move, make yourself visible to moving vehicles.
If you need immediate assistance, call 911 for an ambulance.
Documentation of your crash is important even if you do not feel injured at the scene as you might develop symptoms in the hours and days thereafter. Call 911 for the police.
Obtain the names and contact information of anyone who saw your crash or assisted you.
If your crash involves a vehicle, obtain the license plate, make, model, and color of the vehicle; the name and address of the vehicle’s insurance company; and the name and address of the driver as well as the owner of the vehicle.
Obtain photos of the scene, the vehicle involved, your bicycle, and your injuries. If you do not have a camera phone, try to ask someone at the scene to take photos for you.
If your crash involves a street defect, such as a pothole, speed bump, or other condition, make sure to take photos of the condition and surrounding area as soon as possible because conditions can change.
If you are injured, seek medical attention.
If your crash involves a vehicle, you must notify the proper insurance company of the accident immediately in order that your medical bills are paid.
Keep your bicycle, helmet, and the clothes you were wearing at the time of the crash.
We suggest that you refrain from giving oral or written statements to anyone without first consulting with an attorney.
Call us as soon as you are able to discuss your legal rights.
We advise that you call an attorney to find out what your rights and options are, as there are time deadlines with insurance companies and litigation. There is no charge for a consultation with us.
Many people suffer severe and disabling injuries through no fault of their own and may be entitled to be compensated for their medical expenses, time missed from work and pain and suffering. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss your legal rights.
Your rights will be best protected if you are represented by an attorney. Attorneys are aware of the relevant deadlines and requirements for bringing a claim against the responsible parties. Representation by an attorney can also prevent you from being taken advantage of by insurance companies.
If your bicycle is damaged as a result of a crash with a vehicle at fault, that vehicle’s insurance company should pay the cost of repair or replacement. Gather any receipts for purchase and repair.
The amount that can be recovered for someone’s personal injuries as a result of a bicycle crash depends on numerous factors, including the nature and extent of the injury, the amount of available insurance coverage, and determining the relative fault of those involved.
If your bicycle crash involves a car, truck, bus, cab, or other vehicle, that vehicle’s No-Fault insurance should cover your hospital and medical bills, lost wages, and reasonable expenses related to the crash. If you own your own vehicle, your insurance company might provide additional insurance coverage.
