ARIZONA BICYCLE ACCIDENT LAW FIRM

With Arizona’s warmer climate, cycling is an incredibly popular way to get around town, with Tucson and Phoenix consistently being rated as one of the most bike friendly cities in the country. Unfortunately, while a city may try do everything in its power to protect cyclists by creating dedicated cycling lanes or enacting various laws, there is always the risk of careless or reckless drivers striking cyclists. And even with protective gear such as a helmet, these collisions almost always cause severe injuries to cyclists, and even death. It’s not uncommon for these injuries to include fractures and broken bones, surgery, and even traumatic brain injury. With an inability to work during the recovery process from these injuries, medical bills can quickly add up creating immense financial problems for a victim and their family. That’s why you should contact an experienced attorney immediately to handle your case to ensure you get the compensation you deserve and need. 

What You Should Do After Being Hit While Cycling

It can be terrifying being involved in a bicycle accident, especially when being unaware of the oncoming driver and the impact is especially hard. That being said, there are a few things you should try to do immediately if possible to ensure the best possible result of your case.

  • If you or someone else involved is significantly injured, immediately call 911 and report what happened.
  • If possible, obtain information from the driver of the vehicle, including name, address, phone number, and all insurance information.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene from a variety of angles, including the area where the accident occured, the area of impact of the driver’s car, any damage to your bicycle, and most importantly any apparent injuries to your body such as cuts or scrapes. 
  • If there are any people around when the accident happens, it’s important to ask for names and contact information of any witnesses, having a witness can be critical in establishing the merits of your case.
  • Once a police officer arrives, be sure to file a police report with them and ask for the collision report.
 
If your injury isn’t so significant that it requires you be transported to a hospital by ambulance, the next important step is to immediately seek medical treatment. Promptly seeking medical treatment is crucial for not only helping you recover, but it is also critical in documenting the injuries you’ve received and preserving evidence in your case. An insurance company is unlikely to pay for the injuries you’ve received unless they are clearly documented after being hit in an accident. In addition to seeking treatment after an accident, it’s also incredibly important to be consistent with your treatment by not missing future appointments, inconsistent treatment can show an insurance provider that your injury is not as severe as it appears. Once you’ve gone to seek initial treatment for your injuries, your next big step is to contact a personal injury attorney immediately. The reason it’s so important to have an attorney represent you immediately after your accident is because it allows us to do our job of thoroughly documenting and preserving evidence, as well as ensuring that any statements that are made to an insurance company will not undermine your case or the compensation you’re entitled to. It’s the job of insurance companies to try and pay out as little money as possible on behalf of their insured, that’s why you need someone knowledgeable about the law to fight back.
