After a Bicycle Accident

When you have been in a bicycle accident, it is important to:

  • Call for help: You should dial 911 if you or someone else has been seriously injured. First responders can control the situation. Also, the accident reports that they create can be beneficial for your claim later.
  • Get contact information: You need the contact information and insurance information from all involved parties. If an eyewitness stops to help, then you should get their information, too. Sometimes, the best evidence an attorney can use comes from an eyewitness testimony.
  • Take photographs: Pictures are invaluable in accident claims, as well as videos. Take photographs of the bike accident scene. The more pictures that you can take, the more opportunities your attorney will have to build your case.
  • See a doctor: Visit the doctor for a checkup if you aren’t taken to the hospital immediately after the bike accident. A doctor’s visit can uncover underlying injuries. It can also make an important note in your medical history that backs up your claim.

Bicycle Accident Claim Damages

The value of your claim will be based on the total of your losses caused by the bicycle accident. Losses in an injury claim apply to economic loss and non-economic harm, which means the worth of your case could be more than you initially expect. Let our Providence bike accident lawyers handle the case, so you can be confident that the damages are accurately calculated.

Damages in your bicycle accident claim could include:

  • All past and future medical treatment costs
  • Lost wages and future unearned income
  • Miscellaneous losses related to your injuries
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma
