How To Protect Your Legal Rights After A Bicycle Accident?

The very first thing to do after a bicycle accident involving a vehicle is to focus on your health and safety. Call 911 if you or someone else suffered an injury and need any type of medical care. Be sure to get your bicycle and any broken parts off the road, if you can, to a safe place.  After that, here are some things to consider doing:

  • Try to take as many photos and/or videos of any damage to the bicycle, vehicles and any injuries that are visible.
  • Be sure to keep copies of any expenses you have like medical bills, chiropractor bills, bicycle repair bills, loss of wages and anything that costed you money because of the accident.
  • Be sure to get a copy of the accident report from law enforcement, even if the accident is your fault.
  • Don’t admit any fault to anyone, remember less is more!  And certainly don’t sign anything that says it is your fault because the insurance companies would love nothing more than to deny the claims payout.
  • Be sure to reach out to the best Bicycle Accident Attorney, like us at Tower Legal Group, who are experienced bicycle injury lawyers in Sacramento that can help you determine what the full value of your case might be.

How Does California Bicycle Accident Law Work?

California law allows any injured or deceased person in a bicycle and vehicle accident to file a lawsuit against the person who is responsible.

Legal responsibility is called “Liability” for a bicycle accidents, with proof that is was their fault, even if they didn’t intentionally cause the accident.  Negligence is proving that they operated the vehicle in an unsafe or unreasonable manner, and that is sufficient evidence to demonstrate liability.
