Have you been injured in a bicycle accident?
If you have been injured as the result of a collision with a car while riding a bike, it is important to protect your legal rights. Here’s what to do if you are in a bicycle accident:
- Request immediate medical treatment if you’ve been injured.
- Report the incident and wait for the police.
- Document your version of the accident.
- Obtain identification information from all parties involved as well as any witnesses.
Cars and bicycles must share the road, and it is important that each respect the other’s presence. Many car-bicycle collisions occur because of actions by the car such as turning in front of a cyclist, dangerous passing, ignoring bike lanes, and the opening of car doors in a bicyclist’s path. Injuries resulting from bicycle accidents can range from minor cuts and scratches to severe injuries such as head trauma and brain injuries.
