What Should I Do After a Bike Accident?
The moments immediately following a bicycle accident can be traumatizing, but it’s important to remain calm and follow these steps:
Making sure that you are ok and healthy is priority number one. Even if you don’t think you are hurt, adrenaline can suppress pain where you may have more severe injuries than you originally thought. Have someone drive you to the hospital or dial 911 for an ambulance. If a hospital isn’t necessary, check-in with your doctor as quickly as possible to address any injuries.
Contact the Police
Call the police immediately after the incident if you can. They can identify the parties involved and write up a report on the accident. Remember to ask them for a copy of this report. Also, put together how the accident happened. Take photos and notes and any other evidence you may need before it is moved or removed.
