Quick Investigation After an Accident Preserves Evidence

After a fatal bike accident caused by the negligence of a car or truck driver, it is important that you speak with an attorney soon after the crash. While it may be difficult to think about legal action as you are grieving your loss, we can begin to investigate the cause of the crash quickly after calling us. You may find that our investigation allows us to answers some of your questions as we begin to investigate the accident. We want to do everything that we can to preserve evidence related to the accident, including evidence such as:

  • The bicycle itself
  • Road conditions
  • Weather conditions
  • Locations of crosswalk
  • Identity of Witnesses
  • Physical/mental condition of the person who caused the accident

All of these factors can change very quickly after an accident. The state or county may do its own research after a fatal accident and decide to move a crosswalk or repair faulty road conditions. It is important that we observe and investigate the scene of the accident before it changes, and we are no longer able to record the same conditions.
