What to Do after a Bicycle Accident

Wait for the Police

Be sure not to leave the accident scene before the police can take and file an accident report. Even if you don't think you've been injured at the time of the incident, it's important to have an official record if injuries develop over time. Furthermore, if the police ticket the driver, this can be useful evidence for settling the case with your insurance company.

Get Your Version of Events in the Accident Report

While officers will often not bother to take a statement from a cyclist, make sure you get your side of the story in the police report. If the police will not take your statement, you can have the report amended later

Get Driver and Witness Contact Information

Try to get the following information from the driver: name, address, phone number, driver's license number, vehicle license number, and insurance information. If possible, try to get contact information from any witnesses. 

Write Down What Happened

When you have an opportunity, write down as much of the accident as you can remember: what happened and how, where and when the accident occurred, and the road, traffic, and weather conditions. 

Document Any Injuries

Even if your injuries are minor, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. This ensures that you have medical records as proof of your injury. Try and have photos taken of your injuries, as well. 

Save Evidence

In order to preserve the evidence, do not attempt to fix your bike or any other damaged property. Take photos of your damaged bicycle, helmet, and clothes. 

Talk to a Professional

A personal injury attorney who knows the complex legal issues surrounding bicycle accidents can make the difference between a successful and failed lawsuit. They can advise you on how to proceed, negotiate with your insurance company, and represent you during a lawsuit.
