What to Do After a Bike Accident

If you’ve suffered a bicycle accident injury, taking prompt action can help you pursue the compensation you deserve from the person who hit you. You should:

  • Report the accident to law enforcement and request a copy of any police accident reports.
  • Seek immediate medical attention and follow your physician’s treatment recommendations or recovery instructions.
  • Get copies of medical records of your treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Notify your auto insurance provider to secure any coverage that might be available through your policy.
  • Keep all bills, invoices, and receipts, and gather your pre-accident pay stubs/income statements to calculate your ongoing expenses and lost wages.
  • Refrain from discussing the accident on social media or posting photos/videos of yourself while undergoing treatment/rehabilitation, as insurance companies could use what you post to undercut your claims.

Finally, contact a bicycle injury attorney from Bayuk Pratt to discuss your options for pursuing fair compensation. The sooner you do, the more we can do on your behalf.
