Helping Injured Cyclists in Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster, & York, PA

Riding bicycles is a popular form of exercise, recreation, and inexpensive transportation for people in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, cycling can be dangerous due to a rider’s lack of protection. If cars are driving recklessly and fail to see a cyclist, the collision can result in fatal injuries. Hundreds of cyclists are killed each year in traffic accidents. Federal statistics indicated that more than 700 bicyclist deaths occurred in 2012 alone. This number increases annually. Even with the best safety measures, a bicycle accident can still occur due to the negligence of another car driver.

What Should You Do After A Bicycle Accident?

The reckless driving of a vehicle on the road can cause life-altering injuries to cyclists after a collision. When a bicycle accident occurs, every cyclist should know what to do in the immediate aftermath. Here are some steps you can follow to help protect your rights:

#1: Check to See If You Need Emergency Medical Attention

It is vital to check if you have suffered any injuries after a bicycle accident. If you have sustained serious injuries, you should seek medical attention immediately. If your injuries do not require immediate attention, see your physician as soon as possible—go the day after, if you can.

#2: Contact the Police

It is important to contact the authorities after an accident to create a police report. You should remain at the scene until an officer arrives, if possible. You should also make sure that the officer hears facts from both parties and any eyewitnesses so that the report is as complete as possible. Do not try to speculate as to why the driver hit you. Instead, just state the facts of the incident.

#3: Gather Contact Information

After an accident, it is also important to protect your case by gathering information from eyewitnesses. You will want to make sure you get their names and contact information of the driver and any witnesses of the accident. Having this information will allow your attorneys to reach out to them for your case.

You will need to get the following information from the driver and witnesses:

  • First and last name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Insurance information (of the driver)
  • License number (of the driver)
  • License plate number (of the driver)

It is also important to gather any additional evidence, such as photographs, the time, weather conditions, etc. To learn more about the steps you should take after a bicycle accident, check out our blog.
