Bicycle Accident Basics


Should I seek medical attention?

The most important thing that you can do after a bicycle accident is seek immediate medical attention. You should also be sure to do everything your doctor tells you to do.

Do I need an attorney?

A common question after someone is involved in a bicycle collision is, "Do I need an attorney?" If you're looking to make a claim against the at fault party, you should always consider consulting an attorney before doing anything.

Do I talk to the insurance company?

You should consult an attorney before speaking to an insurance company, because anything you tell the insurance company could be used against you in a subsequent case. A seasoned personal injury attorney will be able to guide you through the process and avoid any unforced errors. Never talk to an insurance company before you've sought legal counsel.

How long do I have to file a claim?

You have two years from the date of the bicycle incident in which to bring a lawsuit. This includes a claim, because any claim made after the two-year statute limitations runs will not be considered by the insurance company, because you cannot bring legal action against the insurer.
