Evidence to Prove Fault in Bicycle Accidents
Proving fault is critical in any injury claim or lawsuit, and bicycle accident cases are no different. A North Carolina bicycle accident lawyer can help investigate the facts and circumstances of a bike accident in order to prove liability and strengthen your case.
Steps an attorney will often take to prove liability in a bicycle accident include:
- Hiring outside experts like accident reconstructionists
- Collecting and preserving important crash scene evidence
- Identifying and interviewing witnesses
- Obtaining surveillance footage and dash cam video
- Obtaining the official police report
- Reviewing medical records
At Riddle & Brantley, our Greensboro bike accident attorneys are supported by an entire team of full-time investigators. These retired law enforcement officers are experienced in handling bicycle accidents and can help investigate and prove liability.
In North Carolina, contributory negligence means that you can be barred from recovering compensation in an injury claim if you even partially contributed to an accident. This makes it even more important that those injured in a bicycle accident in Greensboro consult with an experienced attorney right away to protect their legal rights.
At Riddle & Brantley, we have experience successfully defeating the contributory negligence defense, which insurance companies and defense counsel will often try to use to avoid paying a claim.
