Truskett Law - Top 2 Legal Tips for Bicycle Injury Lawsuits

Top 3 Legal Tips for Bicycle Injury Lawsuits

Many bicyclists ride for the positive health effects -- a good cardio workout, some fresh air, and less pollution. But every now and then, being on the bike, or being knocked off of it, can have some negative health effects as well.
Bicycle accidents are unfortunately common, and many of those accidents result in injuries. Here are a few legal tips if you're considering a bicycle injury lawsuit.

1. Steps to Take Immediately After a Bike Accident
If you've been injured in a cycling accident, what you do right after the crash will be crucial to any future legal claims. Contacting law enforcement and your insurance company, documenting the scene and injuries, and getting as much information as possible from other parties involved may be the difference between winning and losing your case.
2. Bicycle Accidents Can Be Deadly, And Costly
Compared to their driving counterparts, cyclists are vulnerable on the road. And accidents on bicycles can be especially dangerous. Stories of catastrophic injuries and even deaths are not uncommon in bicycle accidents cases, so be careful while riding, and after a crash as well.
