What do I do after a bicycle accident?

People may be out on a bicycle ride when they are faced with an accident. While bicycles can be a good way to get around from place to place, they do not provide much protection. If bikes are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the rider of the bike can face even more danger. A car greatly outweighs a bike. It can ruin the bike and harm the rider severely. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. First, seek the help of a doctor or other medical professional. They should check you out for injuries and treat them as soon as possible. This can also provide documentation of the injuries you sustained from the accident. With a record of your injuries and to what extent you were harmed, this material can be used to build your case. If you are able to preserve evidence from the accident by taking pictures of the scene or talking to witnesses, you should do so to better establish your case. This information may help prove negligence on behalf of the other party that was involved.

What leads to these accidents?

Accidents happen each day. They may not be severe ones but they can cause harm to someone. There are many factors that can lead to a bicycle accident due to negligence. These factors may include someone who was driving under the influence, careless or reckless driving, using electronic devices while driving, distracted driving or driver fatigue. Road conditions may also play a role in causing the accident. A municipality may even be liable due to bad road conditions of bicycle lanes.

What is PIP insurance?

Personal Injury Protection is an insurance plan that most automobile insurance policies have within it. This is a form of no-fault insurance that protects victims that have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. A bicycle and the rider can be covered under this plan. It can help victims by providing financial support to help them financially cover their injuries and more. Through PIP insurance, the monetary value of medical bills and lost wages may be covered. This insurance has the ability to cover medical bills that have piled up after your accident and injury.

Our entire legal team is dedicated to providing the advice you need and the personalized attention you deserve. Call 212-421-0300 or fill out our contact form to schedule a free consultation with a New York City personal injury lawyer.
