Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycle accidents can be devastating for the victim and their family. While many times these accidents are not your fault, it is still important to know what steps to take after an accident as soon as possible. If you or someone you love has been injured in a bike accident, it is important that you contact an experienced bicycle accident lawyer like Pioletti Pioletti & Nichols who can help protect your rights and interests.

Seek Medical Attention

The first thing that you should do after any type of accident is seek medical treatment immediately. If possible, try and get yourself checked out by your family doctor or another local health care provider so that they can tell you if anything was broken during the incident.

Get Witness Information

If there were witnesses at the scene of the crash, ask them if they could write down their account of what happened so that you have something to show your lawyer later on down the road if needed after speaking with another party involved in the accident who may say something different than what actually occurred on scene during the accident.

Call 911 or your local emergency number if anyone is injured in the crash. If someone needs immediate medical attention, call 911 immediately and wait for an ambulance or first-responder to arrive on scene.

Collect Photos of Vehicles

Take photos of all visible damage to both vehicles involved in the collision, as well as any injuries sustained by victims of the crash. You should get at least one photograph of the scene of your accident and any damage done to your bike, helmet or clothing. This can help when preparing an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit later on down the road.
