What to do if You’re in a Bicycle Accident — Lawyer Richard L. Armstrong Explains

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over 600 bicyclists were killed in traffic accidents across the U.S. in 2009, and another 51,000 were injured in traffic accidents. In 2008, Texas ranked third in the nation for the number of bicycle fatalities (53 out of 716), surpassed only by Florida and California. It’s important for bicyclists to know what to do in a traffic accident in order to protect themselves legally.

First, get examined by a physician immediately and don’t tell police or anyone else that you’re not injured until a physician confirms it. Bicyclists tend to be tough individuals, and it’s not uncommon for them to think injuries are minor or non-existent even if they have a serious injury, like broken bones or brain injury. Attorneys have a more difficult time proving the crash caused your injuries if you initially tell police, vehicle drivers or insurance companies that you aren’t seriously hurt.

Even if your injuries seem minor, get the names, addresses and phone numbers of other people involved in the accident. If you are too hurt to do so, have someone do it for you. Sometimes police don’t even file a report if the bicyclist says they weren’t injured in the car crash. Attorneys have a tough time identifying the person to be sued if there is no report at all. Although an experienced attorney like Richard L. Armstrong may still be able to track the person down, it takes more time and is, therefore, more costly. Recording the names and contact information of other persons involved increases your chances of getting the compensation you need for your injuries.

Don’t agree to an insurance settlement before speaking with a lawyer. Many times insurance companies will try to settle an injury claim before the victim understands the full extent of the damage and the compensation they’re entitled to. Usually these settlement amounts are woefully inadequate, but little can be done once a victim signs off on a settlement. Car crash attorneys at Armstrong the Law Firm can help you determine whether a settlement offer is reasonable and protect you from being taken advantage of in a time of vulnerability.
