Bicyclists are no strangers to the risks of being on the road. From frustrated and irritated drivers to distracted drivers, and even neglected properties and roadways, bicyclists are oftentimes in a vulnerable and defenseless position to avoid crashes. This blog post will focus specifically on bicycle accidents that have resulted in head injuries.
Document Everything Immediately After the Accident
It is essential that you document everything immediately after a bicycle accident that has caused a head injury. Take pictures of the scene, write down the contact information of any witnesses or police officers who may have been present, and if you can manage it, get a copy of the police report after filing one yourself. All of this evidence will be essential should you decide to pursue legal action later on.
Seek Medical Attention Right Away
Head injuries sustained in bicycle accidents can be serious and should not be taken lightly. It is important that you seek medical attention right away regardless of how minor your injury may seem at first glance. Even if you feel like your head injury does not warrant medical attention, it is better to be safe than sorry, especially when there is potential for serious long-term damage from neglected head injuries.
