Bicycle Accident Litigation
No matter the severity of the case you are dealing with, filing a lawsuit is not a simple, one-and-done task. If you find yourself in a bicycle accident, it is best to seek guidance or help from an experienced attorney. There are a few key ways to ensure a clear-cut bicycle accident litigation.
At the scene of the accident take down the names and contact information of any witnesses, take pictures of any damage or injuries, report damage and injury costs and be sure to record any pain or injuries that arise in the days following the accident.
If you speak with the rider or driver who was involved in the accident, be sure to ask questions that lead up to their drive or ride. For example:
- How many hours of sleep did they get the previous night?
- Who else was in the car with them or riding with them?
- Were they distracted by music or a phone or another person?
- What was their reason for being on the road (i.e. going to the store, rushing to work or the hospital, etc.)?
It is important to find out this information at the scene of the crime to prevent the other person or persons from changing their story. When you have recorded testimonies or photo evidence from the day of the accident, it is more likely for your case to be handled in your favor and in a timely manner.
