Bicycle Accidents


Injured in a Bike Accident?

Bicycles and motor vehicles have to share the road but sometimes, this can prove more difficult than it should be. A motor vehicle accident with a bicycle may cause serious harm to the cyclist and can lead to a lawsuit. If you're involved in a bicycle accident, it can be confusing and stressful to figure out how to protect yourself and your rights.

What to Do If You Are in a Bicycle Accident

If you're involved in a bicycle accident, there are several steps to remember in order to protect yourself and your ability to pursue a potential lawsuit.

Contact the authorities first. After that, remember these important steps:

  • Document the scene with pictures
  • Don't admit fault even if it may have partially been your fault
  • Don't sign any authorizations or statements
  • Contact your insurance company if you were injured
  • Don't state that you're not hurt—some injuries take months to manifest themselves

An insurance adjustor's job is to try to pay as little as possible for an accident. This means they may try to get you to admit fault or sign a statement that you're not injured. You must avoid doing this! Instead, trust your case to our legal team. We can guide you through every step of your situation. Our team has even created a handbook that explains personal injury claims and will help you navigate this difficult event.

When you hire our firm, we work with you and the authorities to determine who may have been liable in the bike accident and use this information to pursue a lawsuit as necessary.
