How to Make a Personal Injury Claim after a Bike Accident And What To Do When it Happens!

Three Steps to Take Immediately After a Bike Accident Occurs:

1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health and well-being should be your priority. Seek medical attention immediately after the accident, even if you believe your injuries are minor.

2. Gather Information: Collect as much information as possible at the accident scene. This includes the names, contact information, and insurance details of all parties involved, as well as any witnesses. Take photos of the accident scene, the vehicles/bike involved, and any visible injuries.

3. Report the Accident: If the police were not called to the scene, report the accident to the local law enforcement agency as soon as possible. Obtain a copy of the police report.

How to Build a Personal Injury Case, After a Bike Accident Occurs:

Preserve Evidence: Keep all relevant documents, such as medical records, police reports, repair estimates, and any other evidence related to the accident.

Contact Your Insurance Company: Inform your insurance company about the accident, even if you believe the other party was at fault. Cooperate with your insurer but be cautious when speaking with the other party’s insurance company to avoid making statements that could harm your claim.

Consult an Attorney: Consider seeking legal representation from a personal injury attorney experienced in handling bike accident cases in California. At VBV LAW GROUP we can guide you through the claims process, protect your rights, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.

Determine Liability: California follows a comparative fault system, meaning the amount of compensation you may receive can be reduced if you are found partially at fault for the accident. Your attorney will help determine liability and assess the impact on your claim.

File a Personal Injury Claim: We will will assist you in filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company. The claim will seek compensation for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other applicable damages.

Negotiate Settlement: Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company to reach a fair settlement. If a reasonable agreement cannot be reached, they may advise pursuing a lawsuit.
