- 1. Seek Medical Attention: Some injuries will be apparent. However, others you may not notice initially and might be worse than they appear. If you are in doubt, it’s always a good idea to call an ambulance or get yourself to the Emergency Room.
- 2. Contact the Police: It is important that a police report is completed. If no police are called to the scene, be sure to call them yourself or have someone close to you call them. The police report is often a valuable piece of evidence in a bicycle collision claim.
- 3. Gather Information: Collect any information that you can from the scene of the accident. Get names of those involved in the accident, names of any witnesses, phone numbers, and license plate numbers.
- 4. Gather Evidence: Take pictures of the scene of the accident, your bike, the people nearby, and your injuries. Maintain possession of your bicycle if possible. Also, be sure to document your injuries and medical treatment as you recover.
- 5. Seek Legal Advice: Speak with an attorney who can properly advise you on your best course of action.
