What If You’re Involved In A Bicycle Accident?

As a cyclist, there is a chance that you might be involved in an accident. Drivers are always preoccupied with looking at the roads, watching out for other cars, or using their phones and sometimes forget to look out for cyclists.

In the event you’re in a bicycle accident, here are a few things you need to do;

Firstly, you need to call an ambulance if you’ve been injured. Your health should always be your priority. So get the medical aid you need before any other thing.

You can then call the police immediately and report the accident if you haven’t been hurt. Don’t forget to collect the details of the driver. This includes their name, address, and insurance details. Also, take pictures of the accident.

If you don’t see any visible injuries or feel any pain, go to the hospital after you’ve called the police. This ensures that no internal damage would show signs days after you’ve been in the accident.

Get in touch with a lawyer so you can discuss how to get your compensation after a bicycle accident.
