If you have been injured in a bike accident, it is possible that you may be entitled to financial compensation. Read on to find out how you can receive compensation for a bicycle accident with the help of an experienced attorney.
What Should I Do After a Bicycle Crash?
It is essential that you make a plan after being injured in a bike accident. After being injured, take the following steps to protect yourself:
- Alert the authorities. The police will send medical personnel to the scene for treatment of any injuries. The police will document the accident through a police report.
- If you are able to, you should take pictures and videos while you wait for an ambulance. Include any damage to vehicles or property. You should also take photos of any hazards that may have caused your accident.
- Gather the contact information of any witnesses, including their name, telephone number, and email.
- Seek treatment as soon as you receive medical attention. Even if you don’t feel any symptoms, it is still important to seek treatment. If you suspect that injuries may occur later, it is important to have a professional observe you.
- Gather all the medical documents that relate to your injury, including dates, times, and the severity of your injury.
You should retain the services of an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer who will fight for the compensation that you deserve.
