Do I Need A Rhode Island Bicycle Accident Attorney?

Personal injury cases, especially bicycle accident cases, can be complicated and should be handled by an experienced and skilled team of attorneys. Obtaining legal representation can give you the time you need to heal physically and emotionally while still ensuring that you will be able to receive just legal compensation for your bicycle accident injuries.

Data from 2018 shows that fatal and non-fatal crash-related injuries to bicyclists resulted in lifetime medical costs and productivity losses of $10 billion. Having the right legal team represent your interests in your bicycle accident claim or that of a loved one can be the difference in hundreds of thousands of damage awards.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU ARE INJURED IN A BICYCLE ACCIDENT?

CALL 9-1-1

If you are able to do so, immediately call 9-1-1, or indicate to either the driver or others that they need to do so. The vast majority of bicycle accidents result in serious injuries. Even if you feel you are able to get up and walk away, it is important that you have experienced medical personnel examine you immediately. Ask the police to create an accident report for the incident.

COLLECT INFORMATION

Once you have been evaluated by on-scene medical personnel, make sure you collect the information from the other driver including their name, phone number, insurance information, and their license plate number. If possible, use your phone to take pictures of the scene including the location of the collision, damage to the vehicles and any injuries you have.

TALK TO A LAWYER BEFORE YOU TALK TO INSURANCE COMPANIES

It is important to remember that the driver’s insurance company and their adjusters are not working in your interest – no matter how concerned they seem over the phone. Their goal is to limit their liability and thereby limit your compensation. To limit their liability they will investigate the accident looking for factors that may limit the responsibility of their driver in the accident. This is what they are looking for when they are talking to you. We always recommend that you call our skilled Rhode Island bicycle accident attorneys for a no obligation consultation. With our experience we can deal with the driver’s insurance company with a goal towards getting you the maximum compensation for your injuries.
