Bike Accidents: Do Your Due Diligence

With the economy, gas prices, and environmental awareness, many more people are riding their bikes instead of driving. But what happens if you get hit while riding your bike? If you just have a few scrapes, is a bike accident really a serious event? Here is what you need to know:

A Bike Accident Is Serious

Though you and the driver may feel that the accident isn’t serious, legally and when it comes to personal injury cases, it is recommended that you call the police anyway. Some injuries don’t show themselves until later, and many expenses due to an accident can be covered by insurance.

Document Damage

Document your injuries and damage down to your bike and equipment. Also, be sure the police hear your side of the story and NEVER admit fault. Even if the other person involved in the accident seems nice and well-intentioned, your best plan of action is to protect yourself as much as possible while remaining honest.

Seek Medical Attention

Even if you feel like you managed to make it out of the accident unscathed, still contact a doctor and get a physical. As mentioned above, some injuries don’t show themselves immediately, and some may seem short term, but can become long term problems that may require ongoing medical attention and adjustment.

Check Your Equipment

Before you hit the road or trail with your bike, thoroughly look over your bike and the functionality of the mechanisms. Even a minor accident can affect the major functionality of your bike and put you in danger.
