What should I do after being injured in a bicycle accident?
If you’ve been injured in a bicycle crash in the state of Arizona, there are a few things that you will want to do fairly quickly. First thing is make sure you take care of your health. Get to the medical providers that you need to see, do what they recommend, follow their instructions, and do everything you can to get yourself back to the same way you were before the crash. You also want to do whatever you can to take photographs of the scene or have somebody do that for you. Show the positions of the vehicle and bike as well as the location on the roadways. Make sure you document as much of that as possible. It’s a good idea to hire an attorney quickly so they can help in the preservation of that evidence. Witnesses, documents, photographs, and electronic data tends to disappear. You want to get what you can or have an attorney assist you with preserving that evidence.
It’s also very important that you hire an attorney who is experienced with bicycle crashes, deals with them regularly, and has dealt with them successfully. Hire somebody who knows how to handle a case from beginning to end, and will take whatever steps are necessary to make sure that you get a fair resolution.
