Injured in a Bike Accident?
Riding a bicycle is one of the best ways to get around Philadelphia. Dealing with frustrated drivers, potholes and car doors that open out of no where? Not so much. As an avid biker myself, I know that bikers have much more to lose than cars in an accident. Whether it’s a driver who “doesn’t see you” or a driver who opens their door directly into the bike lane, bike injuries can be severe.
What Should I do If I’m Injured in Bicycle Accident?
Try to get the driver’s information. If they stop, they should exchange insurance information just as you would in a car accident.
If they flee the scene attempt to get the driver’s license plate and call the police.
Call the police and request an ambulance, if the driver leaves the scene tell the 911 dispatch. Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime.
Make sure you get a police report and the DC#. This number will be very useful later.
Check yourself for injures and go to the hospital to get checked out. Even if you just have cuts and bruises, you may have internal injuries that are not immediately apparent
Call an experienced personal injury lawyer to begin an immediate investigation and protect your rights.
