I was struck by a car while riding my bike. What should I do?

The first thing you should always do in any bike injury accident is seek medical attention immediately, even if your injuries appear to be minor. Don’t try to be tough and shrug it off. If the accident was caused by someone else and you’re contemplating legal action, receiving prompt medical treatment will be beneficial to your case. Make sure to keep copies of your medical records. If you are unable to afford medical treatment, please contact us for advice. In many cases, our attorneys can help you get the treatment you need.

There are also other steps you can take. It’s vitally important for anyone injured in a bicycle accident to document the incident as thoroughly as possible. Get the names of the motor vehicle driver, police officers at the scene and any witnesses. Take photographs of your injuries and the accident scene. As soon as possible, write down every detail you can remember about the accident before your memory fades. Accomplishing these tasks can help develop a stronger case.
