Bicycles provide an efficient and cost-effective mode of transportation, but unfortunately, they can also be dangerous. When a bicycle hits a car, the cyclist is at risk of serious injury or death. In this blog, we’ll discuss what you should do if you are hit by a car while riding a bicycle and the steps you should take to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
If you are involved in a bicycle accident involving a vehicle and your bicycle, it’s important to gather as much evidence as possible. If possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident, including all vehicles involved and any visible injuries that may have resulted from the crash. This will help when filing an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit later on. It’s also important to get contact information for any witnesses who may have seen what happened.
Seek Medical Attention
When bike accidents occur, it’s critical to seek medical attention even if you don’t feel injured at the time of the accident. Often times injuries don’t manifest until hours or days after an accident occurs, seeking medical attention will provide valuable documentation and evidence that can be used later on in court proceedings. Additionally, having documented medical records will help ensure that your injuries are taken seriously and that all necessary treatments are covered by insurance companies or other responsible parties.
