What are steps victims of bike accidents should take? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Bicyclists who are involved in vehicle accidents need to treat the accidents just as if they would if they were driving a car. It is essential to get proper documentation in order to prevail in any legal actions or claims if you are injured in the crash.

One step to take is to report the accident to the police so they will come to the scene. This is especially important if you have been injured and need medical attention. You will also want to get the name and insurance information of the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash. If there were witnesses to the crash, make sure to get their contact information, as well.
