What Can I Do To Protect My Rights After A Bicycle Accident

What Can I Do to Protect My Rights After a Bicycle Accident?

Whether you were struck by a vehicle or crashed due to dangerous road conditions, you need to protect your rights after a bicycle accident. Make sure to:

  • Report your incident to the police
  • File an incident claim with your employer (if the accident happened at work)
  • Request medical attention immediately
  • Obtain the names and contact information of witnesses
  • Take or have someone else take photographs at the scene
  • Document the cause of your bicycle accident
  • Refrain from giving a statement to the at-fault party before speaking to a lawyer
  • Avoid posting about your accident or injuries on social media
  • Consult a qualified and experienced lawyer

You do not have to manage the aftermath of a bicycle accident on your own. A New York bicycle accident attorney can carefully investigate your accident and injuries, preserve evidence, and build a strong claim for maximum financial compensation.

Seek Medical Attention After a Bicycle Accident

Seeking medical attention as soon as possible after an accident has two main benefits.  First, medical attention will diagnose and treat your injuries. A healthcare professional can assess your condition and diagnose any accident-related impairments that could threaten your well-being.

Secondly, medical attention and testing will help us prove the full extent of your injuries so that we can demand full, fair, and just financial compensation for you.

Document Your Accident-Related Losses

As a result of your bicycle accident, you may have incurred many types of physical, emotional, and financial damages. The American Bar Association (ABA) notes that some of these damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Mental anguish
  • Future pain and suffering if your injuries are found to be permanent
  • Physical disfigurement or scarring
  • Out of pocket medical bills
  • Future medical costs for treatment, equipment, or medications
  • Lost wages or disability

Documentation such as invoices, receipts, billing statements, and your employment records could help prove the cost of your economic losses. Try to keep copies of all documents relating to your damages and provide them to your lawyers.

Why Contact a Law Firm?

Not every bicycle accident will result in a strong claim. In order to protect your rights, consult a team of lawyers that has decades of experience fighting for injury victims just like you. But don’t delay since there are deadlines that limit your rights to compensation.

If you fail to file your claim by the deadline, you could be prevented from recovering the compensation you deserve. Also, the sooner you consult a lawyer, the sooner they can perform a full investigation of your accident and secure evidence before it is lost. Some examples of evidence that may be lost after your bicycle accident may include the following:

  • Surveillance footage
  • 911 audio transcripts
  • Witness information or identification
  • Proof of a dangerous condition that can be lost or repaired

How an Investigation Works

If you have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, a careful and thorough investigation must be started immediately. Some of the actions that will help build a strong claim for maximum compensation may include the following:

  • Obtaining all police and incident reports
  • Interviewing all witnesses
  • Locating all video footage or 911 transcripts, if available
  • Conducting a site visit and taking photographs
  • Consulting experts in accident reconstruction
  • Requesting all EMS, hospital, and medical records
  • Demanding sworn statements from all at-fault parties
  • Retaining medical experts to evaluate the full extent of your injuries
  • Analyzing all lost wages and financial data
  • Filing all claims in a timely manner
  • Preparing your case for trial before a jury at trial in Court

Your lawyer’s number one goal is to fight for you so that you recover the maximum financial compensation based upon all of your injuries.
