BICYCLE INJURY

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER A BICYCLE COLLISION?

Take immediate steps to ensure everyone involved is safe and seek medical attention if necessary. Next, document the scene by taking pictures of any hazards such as potholes or uneven sidewalks that may have contributed to the accident. These photos can serve as valuable evidence later on.

Additionally, get your bike properly fixed by a qualified professional and save all receipts related to repairs or replacements. This documentation can help establish the extent of damages and expenses incurred as a result of the accident, supporting any potential insurance claims or legal actions.

Finally, consider consulting with a personal injury attorney specializing in bicycle accidents to understand your rights and options for seeking compensation for injuries and damages.

WHY YOU NEED A BICYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER

Seeking legal representation is crucial due to the unique risks and vulnerabilities faced by bicycle riders. Cyclists often contend with road hazards that can result in severe injuries, for which cities or the Washington State Department of Transportation may be held accountable. Moreover, if a cyclist sustains injuries in a collision involving a car, they are entitled to the driver’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policy, irrespective of fault. Navigating these legal intricacies and advocating for fair compensation necessitates the expertise of a knowledgeable attorney who can effectively pursue claims and protect the rights of injured cyclists.
