What to Do After a Phoenix Bicycle Crash

By Breyer Law Offices on January 7, 2015

Arizona Bicycle AccidentWhen you’re involved in a Phoenix bicycle crash, you may not know what to do. After all, what you do after a crash between a car and a bicycle should be different than those involving two cars, right? Wrong. Collisions involving bicycles are not significantly different in the rules of how they should be handled. If you’re hit by a car when you’re riding down the street, here are the top things you must remember to do (and don’t let the driver talk you out of it):

  • Call the police. If you’re injured and you decline to call the police, you’ll be missing out on an important document that could help you get the compensation you need from the insurance company and the driver that hit you.
  • Collect as much information at the scene as possible. If you’re not too injured at the time to collect information, get the license plate number, name, address, and insurance information of the driver who hit you. Also get the names and telephone numbers of witnesses. And if you can, take photos of the scene.
  • Write down everything that happened as soon as possible. After your collision, you’ll need to provide a statement to your attorney, the insurance company, and some other parties. Make sure you write it down as quickly as possible so you don’t forget any details.
  • Get to the hospital ASAP. Going to the hospital seems like the last thing on the mind of people who’ve been hit by a car, and yet, it should be one of the first things you think about and do to ensure that you don’t have any severe or life-threatening injuries.

Never let a bicycle collision get the best of you. Be ready to take action for your own safety and be smart by following these tips.
