Lawyer's Advice for a Bike Crash

Everyone hopes that they'll never be in a crash.  But as with most things, you have to prepare most for the things you most hope will never happen.  So, as cyclists, we wear helmets, we carry cell phones, we wear Road IDs, and (when possible) we ride in groups.  But what do you do if you are in an accident involving another vehicle, especially a motor vehicle?  How do you take care of yourself, while also protecting your rights?  A lawyer  in Ohio who is also a cyclist has some good tips.

  • Don’t Move
  • Call the POLICE at 911
  • Seek medical attention
  • Take Photos.  
  • Keep a Journal. 
  • Don’t fix your bike right away. 
  • Stay Organized.
Fair warning, the site is also an advertisement for the lawyer's services.  But the advice is still sound.

It surprises me how often people forget to take pictures! Jeez you have a cell phone...I tell clients all the time their camera is the most valuable thing they have...not to call, but to take a picture.
