A bicycle colliding with a car? It happens, and more often than people think it does. When a bicycle accident involves a motorized vehicle, the results can be horrific. You don’t have to handle the results of a bicycle accident alone. Hinkle Law Offices can help you handle the aftermath of an accident and get you the compensation you deserve.
If You’re In a Bicycle Accident
You’ve just been in a terrifying accident and now you’re trying to handle the situation. If you’re not severely injured at the scene, there are things you can do to help your case when you see a lawyer about your bike accident. One of the most important things to do is to wait for the police; having your statement taken down will help strengthen your case later.
Report your injuries, regardless of how minor they may seem. Get the driver’s information—driver’s license number and insurance information—and that of any witnesses that are on the scene. This includes name, phone numbers and addresses. These people can provide valuable testimony later on. Seek medical attention immediately and document your injuries and treatment. Don’t have your bicycle repaired until advised to do so by your lawyer.
