Bike Accident Lawyer


Whenever we hear of a cyclist being involved in a road accident, we instinctively assume that the consequences will be pretty severe. A cyclist is completely vulnerable. He is at the mercy of car drivers and takes to the road in the hope that they will be highly vigilant and respectful of his presence. When a cyclist is not wearing a helmet, the outcome will be even less positive. It takes just a moment or two to protect the head but many risk their luck far too often and end up suffering for something which could have been easily avoided. A bike accident lawyer has a good chance of winning a case when it can be proven that his client was wearing a helmet. This shows that the rider took responsibility for his safety.

The tangled web that bikes weave

With so many bikes meandering in and out of traffic these days, accidents are on the increase. Some people ride a bike to work every single day and probably have a tale or two up their sleeve when it comes to recalling incidents they have witnessed. Most knocks are likely to be nothing more than a minor scrape but others are so severe they cause outright death.

Whether an accident is serious or minor, a bike accident lawyer would expect a client to have followed certain protocol. When a road collision has been handled correctly, the process of filing a claim for compensation is much easier and the case is more likely to reach a successful conclusion.

The procedure your bike accident lawyer will expect you to follow

After being knocked off a bike, it is important to establish how you feel. If you experience any signs of pain, you should ask someone to call the emergency services or ring them yourself. If you feel completely fine, it is still important to allow the medics to check you over. Alternatively you should head straight to Accident and Emergency or visit your G.P for a thorough examination. Sometimes a head trauma may not always become immediately apparent after impact, and it could take several days for pain to emerge.

Ring 999

Whenever a road accident takes place, the police should always be informed. A bike accident lawyer can use their report as vital evidence. You should also take details of any witnesses present. These people were your eyes and ears and will back up your account of events. They may even be able to add to the information provided as they may have viewed things that you were unable to see. Therefore, do not leave the scene without obtaining the contact details of this incredibly important source.

Preserve everything

Last but not least…do not be tempted to throw away anything which was involved in the accident. Preserve the clothes that you were wearing along with your helmet (if you were wearing one) and any possessions you were carrying at the time.
