On average, 742 cyclists die in fatal bicycle accidents each year. If you have been in an accident, make sure to call the police and have them arrive at the scene. It is also important to exchange information with the driver and check to see if there are any witnesses at the scene. Write everything down, any and all mental notes of what happened. If you are injured, it is important to seek immediate medical attention for your injuries no matter how minor they might seem. If your bike is damaged, along with any other property that was damaged, take pictures. It is recommended to then contact an attorney so they can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. The attorney is there for you so that you can focus on getting the proper medical treatment needed while they handle the claim.
