Proving Your Bicycle Accident Case

Proving Your Bicycle Accident Case

The strength of a bicycle accident claim is dependent on many different factors. There is not one piece of evidence that can help prepare a successful claim for compensation for accident injuries, medical bills and lost wages. At the Mills Law Firm, our experienced bike accident lawyers understand the hard work and dedication required to put together a successful accident claim.

What to Do After a Bike Injury

After a bicycle accident, it is important that you seek medical attention for your injuries, no matter how insignificant you think they are at first. Your minor injuries related to the crash can quickly turn into serious, even life-threatening injuries, if your preferred medical doctor does not properly treat them.

We also encourage cyclist injury victims to get the police involved. When an officer responds it is important to get critical information from the officer, including the case number, the officer's name and the badge number so we can easily locate the accident report.

If there were witnesses to the accident, and you are able to get the witnesses' names and phone numbers, it is important to do so. Witnesses can provide useful information for your bicycle accident case, such as the weather, road conditions and the behavior of the car or truck driver.

Investigators Prepare Evidence

After you hire our personal injury attorneys to work on your bicycle accident case, we will use all of our resources to pursue a claim on your behalf. In order to prove your bicycle accident case, we use knowledgeable investigators to examine the accident scene. They will be able to research and evaluate factors that may have caused your crash with a car, such as road conditions, weather conditions and crosswalk locations. We use the evidence from our investigation to demonstrate how the accident occurred.

We commonly rely on bicycle accident experts throughout your case. If your case turns into a products liability case because of faulty bike parts, we may turn to bicycle experts to strengthen your case. If an issue in your case is your reaction time, we can use human factor experts who are able to testify about these issues and how they contributed to the accident.

Don't Repair Your Bike After an Accident

Another important aspect of proving your bicycle accident case is the bike itself. That's why it is especially important to refrain from fixing your bike after an accident. While the temptation may be to get the bike repaired so that you can continue riding, doing so can ruin your accident case. Instead, we encourage you to take pictures of your bicycle after the accident and store it until your entire case has been resolved.
