What to Do After a Bicycle Accident
If you’ve been injured in a bike accident in Charlotte or elsewhere in North Carolina, follow these tips to stay safe and protect your legal rights:
- Call 911 — In the immediate aftermath of the bicycle accident, call 911 and wait for first responders, including paramedics and law enforcement officers.
- Seek Medical Attention — Not only is seeking treatment critical for your safety and well-being, but the medical records will prove important in any potential injury claim or lawsuit.
- Take Photos — Photograph the crash scene, including any debris, skid marks, property damage, and other evidence. Also be sure to get photos of any injuries.
- Talk with Law Enforcement — Be honest and straightforward in communicating with law enforcement, keeping in mind that anything you say can and will be used against you. The official accident report will be critical in your potential injury claim.
- Identify Witnesses — Identify potential witnesses and get their contact information. Their testimony may be important in any potential claim or lawsuit.
- Do NOT Give the Insurance Company a Recorded Statement — In the aftermath of a bicycle accident, the insurance adjuster will want to get a recorded statement.
