What can I do after a bicycle accident?

Riding a bicycle can be a great form of exercise and a way to get from place to place. Although they can prove to be beneficial for these reasons, they have to share the road with motor vehicles. This can make riding a bike dangerous. If a motor vehicle was to come into contact with a bike, it is not a fair match up. A rider on a bike is not as protected as someone riding in a car. If you have been the victim of a car accident while riding a bike, you should seek medical attention. After obtaining care from a healthcare professional, it is best to contact an attorney to help gather information for your case. The documentation of your doctor’s visit can be used to prove the extent of the injuries you sustained from the accident. If you are able to preserve evidence from the accident, such as taking pictures of the scene or talking to witnesses, you should do so to better establish your case. This information may help prove negligence on behalf of the other party that was involved.

What can lead to a bike accident?

There are many factors that can lead to a bicycle accident due to negligence. These factors may include someone who was driving under the influence, careless or reckless driving, using electronic devices while driving, distracted driving or driver fatigue. Road conditions may also play a role in causing the accident. A municipality may even be liable due to bad road conditions of bicycle lanes.
