DALLAS BICYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST

The following checklist is intended for people who have been hit by a car while riding their bicycle.

1) Examine yourself for injuries. Being hit by a car while riding a bicycle is unexpected and unexpected. It is also a traumatic event. As soon as you gather your senses, you will most likely be in shock. Before you try to move around, make sure you don’t have any serious injuries. If you are injured in any way, whether you believe the injuries are serious or not, you must seek medical attention immediately.

2) If you are injured, call 911. If you are hit by a vehicle while riding your bicycle, you must call 911 so that police and paramedics can examine you. The police will look into the accident, and paramedics will assess you for any serious injuries.

3) Obtain contact information for witnesses. Gather any witnesses’ contact information. Obtain names, phone numbers, email addresses, and any other contact information they are willing to provide you with. Witnesses may not wait for the police to arrive. You must obtain their contact information before they depart.

4) Obtain a driver’s license and auto insurance. After an accident, Texas law requires a driver to provide identification and proof of auto liability insurance. Take a photo of the driver’s ID and insurance information with your cellphone if you have one.

5) Photograph the damage to your bike and vehicle, as well as the scene. Take pictures of the damage to your bike as well as any damage to the vehicle that hit you. Photograph the accident scene as well. Take photos of the direction you were going on your bike, as well as the direction you were coming from. Take photos of the direction in which the vehicle that hit you was traveling, as well as the direction in which they came from. Take photos of any on-the-ground debris from the collision, such as broken glass. Photograph any skid marks that may have been left on the ground.

NOTE: If you are unable to do any of the above, you must bring a friend or family member to the scene to assist you.

6) Inform the police of what occurred in the accident. Tell the police what happened when they arrive. The officer will speak to each person involved separately, away from the rest of the group. Inform the officer of what occurred so that your version of the accident is included in the police report.

7) Pay attention to the paramedics. If the paramedics advise you to go to the emergency room, you should do so. Paramedics are trained to look for signs of traumatic injuries that could be serious or even fatal. If they tell you to, go to the ER.

8) Be aware of your symptoms. If your symptoms worsen later in the day and you feel the need to go to the emergency room, do not hesitate. Go to the doctor and get yourself checked out.

9) Seek medical attention for any injuries you may have. If you are injured, you must consult with a medical professional. If you are unsure where to go, the Law Office of Doug Goyen can assist you in locating a medical provider who will see you for your injuries. If you are unable to pay for treatment, we can assist you in locating a medical facility that will defer billing until your insurance company pays for your injury.

10) Get an estimate for your bike’s damage. If your bicycle is damaged, you must be compensated for the damage. Some bicycles are exorbitantly priced. Get an estimate for your bicycle from a repair shop. If the damage is too severe for repairs, obtain documentation demonstrating the cost of replacing your bicycle (similar age and condition bicycle).

11) Photograph any visible injuries. If you do not provide proof of a large bruise, road rash, and lacerations, the insurance company will not believe you.

12) If you are injured, do not speak with the automobile insurance adjuster. If you have been injured by a car, do not speak with the insurance adjuster. The insurance adjuster’s job is to try to reduce the amount of money paid by the insurance company for injury claims. They will deny your claim if they can. Adjusters ask questions in order to elicit responses that will allow them to deny a portion or all of a claim.

Engage the services of a lawyer to represent you in negotiations with the insurance company. A Dallas car accident lawyer who handles car accidents and bicycle accidents understand how to present your claim in a way that does not jeopardize your ability to collect compensation for your injuries.

13) Be cautious about what you post on social media. Assume that the insurance adjuster, investigator, and lawyers will see anything you post on social media. If you post photos of yourself having fun with friends or family and appearing to be in good health, the insurance company will use those photos against your injury claim.

14) Do your homework and hire a personal injury attorney. If you have been injured, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer. Before you hire a personal injury lawyer, do your research. Inquire with friends and family if they have any experience with personal injury lawyers who handle car or bicycle accidents. Actually speak with the attorney, not the claims manager. If you can’t reach the attorney or get a return call, don’t use him or her.

BICYCLISTS HIT BY AUTOMOBILES

If you are hit by a car while riding your bike, your medical bills and time away from work can quickly add up. Often, the insurance company will fight, claiming that the bicyclist should have yielded to the car.

Bicyclists have the right to ride on public roads. Insurance adjusters treat a bicycler’s injury in an unfair and unjust manner, employing bias and broad generalizations to avoid paying for what their driver caused.

Bicycle injury lawyer questions and answers for Texas cases    Bicycle injury lawyer advice on being hit by an automobile

Bicycling can be a great way to exercise and get in shape. Cycling is one of the most effective cardiovascular workouts you can give your body. The impact on your joints and body, in general, is usually minimal as well (compared to other cardio exercising like running). Cycling is one of the world’s most popular forms of exercise.

Unfortunately, cycling can be dangerous due to the carelessness of some automobile drivers. Some drivers fail to pay attention to what is going on in front of or around them on the road. Drivers of automobiles can be quite dangerous to cyclists when they are distracted by cell phones, radios, or children yelling in the back seat. The automobile protects its driver, but a bicycle does not protect its rider. An automobile accident involving a bicycle can result in serious injuries or death.

We represent people who have been injured in bicycle accidents or who are the survivors of cyclists who have been killed in road accidents.

The injuries sustained in a bicycle accident can be severe. Spinal injuries to the back or neck, torn ACL of the knee, lacerations/cuts, broken bones, head or brain trauma injuries, or ligament damage are all possibilities. You may owe money on medical bills or have lost your job. You may be unable to carry out your normal daily activities. We can assist you in discussing your options and developing a strategy to address all of the problems listed above. Call our Dallas bicycle accident attorney to discuss your case.
