Mistakes That Will Ruin Your Bicycle Accident Claim


What mistakes should I avoid after a bicycle accident?


I was recently speaking to a lady who was injured while riding her bicycle. A car had jumped the curb and knocked her off, causing her to get scrapes, bruising. She had torn clothing and her bicycle was damaged. When the ambulance arrived, she didn?t go to the hospital. She was focused on her bicycle more than anything else and how she was going to get to work the next day. When she asked me what she should do, I explained to her that it?s important she takes pictures of whatever bruising she has left and to make sure not to get rid of the torn clothing. The bicycle is something that can be replaced, but you cannot reproduce the injuries you get from an accident. She ended up going to the doctor, but she took a few days to get there. She should have gone sooner, and she should have called me sooner.

These are the types of things that I see from people when they get involved in a bicycle accident. If you have any questions about what you could?ve done or what you didn?t do after your bicycle accident, give us a call.
