What are the first legal steps I should take after being involved in a bicycle accident

If you've been involved in a bicycle accident, taking certain legal steps can help protect your rights and ensure you have the necessary evidence to support any potential claim. Keep in mind, your actions immediately following a bicycle can impact your claim, including the settlement amount you can recover.


What Should I Do After Being Injured In a Bike Accident?

Here are the first legal steps you should consider after a bicycle accident:

Exchange Information

Obtain the contact information, names, addresses, and insurance details of all parties involved in the accident, including drivers, passengers, and witnesses.

Gather Evidence

If possible, collect evidence at the scene. Take photos of the accident site, any damage to your bicycle, the involved vehicles, and any visible injuries you sustained.

File a Police Report

If the police do not come to the scene, go to the nearest police station as soon as possible to file an accident report.

Preserve Evidence

Preserve any physical evidence related to the accident, such as damaged clothing, helmets, or other belongings.

Contact a Bicycle Accident Attorney

Consider consulting with a bicycle accident lawyer experienced in bike accident cases. An attorney can evaluate your case, explain your rights, and advise you on the best course of action.

Document Your Damages

Keep records of your injuries, medical treatments, medical expenses, lost wages, and any other damages resulting from the accident.

Avoid Settling Too Quickly

Do not agree to any settlement offers or sign any documents from the driver's insurance company without consulting with an attorney. Insurance companies may try to settle quickly for a lower amount than you may be entitled to.


How Can a Bike Accident Lawyer Protect My Claim?

An experienced attorney can guide you through the process, advocate for your rights, and work to ensure you receive fair compensation for your bicycle accident injuries.

Remember that the steps you take immediately after the accident can significantly impact any potential injury claim. By following these legal steps and seeking proper legal advice from a bike accident lawyer, you can protect your rights and increase your chances of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and damages resulting from the bicycle accident.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
