What should I do first if I am in a bicycle accident?

The first thing that you should do if you have been injured while bicycling, is to get medical attention for yourself and any other individual. After that, there are several other things to keep in mind in order to preserve your ability to seek compensation.

  1. Call the police if you have been injured
  2. Try to take photographs or video of the scene of the accident
  3. Get contract information from other involved parties and from any witnesses
  4. Do not admit fault or apologize for the accident
  5. Do not talk to insurance adjusters
  6. Do not sign any documents or releases
