Recovering Damages for Bicycle Accident Victims
One of the reasons that bicycle accidents are notorious for causing the worst injuries is due to the lack of protection a bicyclist has. When a large, heavy vehicle strikes a person on a bike, even going at low speeds, it can lead to life-altering, catastrophic injuries. Additionally, many of the causes of bike accidents are preventable, such as driver negligence or poorly maintained roads.
Our Longview bicycle accident lawyer works to recover the following types of compensation for your injuries and suffering:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Medical bills
Steps to Take After a Bicycle Accident
It goes without saying that if you are severely injured in a bike accident and need immediate medical attention, that should be your first priority. However, if you are able to, you should take steps to help in building a personal injury claim. This may include taking photos of your bicycle and the other vehicle, making an accident report and asking for a copy, and asking for the responsible driver’s insurance information.
