Find Out if Working with a Bike Accident Attorney is Right for You
Choosing to work with a bicycle accident lawyer is not an easy decision.
There are many options, but you want someone who not only talks the talk...but rides a bike too.
If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you are about to enter the world of insurance claims and maybe even litigation.
You have just become another statistic in the city’s bicycle accident record. You’re seriously injured. Not just bumps, bruises and scrapes, but really injured… and you’re in pain.
You have probably had a disheartening conversation or two with an insurance adjustor that left you wondering “what do I do now?”
It is a scary, confusing, time-consuming place to be unless you have someone who really cares about you and your case representing you.
That said, if you engage a San Francisco bicycle accident lawyer who takes every case that is brought to him or her, you may find yourself just as scared, confused and overwhelmed as you were before representation.
What you want is a focused, experienced, professional personal injury law firm with a proven track record of success on bicycle accident cases like yours.
You also want a firm that understands how to resolve your case as expediently as possible, and who will allow you to focus on healing from your injuries.
If You've Been Injured in a San Francisco Bicycle Accident...
Bicycle accidents happen everyday in San Francisco.
Bicycles are an extremely popular way to get around San Francisco, but like cyclists everywhere, they face the risk of being involved in bicycle accidents.
Nationwide, there are over 50,000 bicycle accidents each year and nearly of those 800 die from their injuries.
Bicycle accidents in San Francisco almost always result in some form of injury, often very serious, and it’s important that you know what to do and what not to do if you find yourself in one.
Bicyclists have the same right to be on the road as drivers of automobiles. However, they face the threat of serious injuries from a bicycle accident that other drivers do not face.
As a commuting/urban cyclist in San Francisco, you deserve an attorney who is very familiar with the dangers that cyclists face in an urban environment on a daily basis. One who is committed to helping cyclists assert their rights if they have the unfortunate experience of being in a bicycle accident.
Cyclists in the Bay Area are a key element to the “green movement”, and a qualified bicycle accident attorney will put in the extra effort to reach out to help people in the community: specifically cyclists, pedestrians and even motorcyclists, who are taking steps to help preserve the environment.
It is unfortunate that such persons tend to be more vulnerable to serious injury accidents, as they are not shielded by thousands of pounds of metal and plastic like people in cars.
But they have to face those vehicles on the road daily.
This population needs a personal injury attorney who focuses on bicycle accident cases.
Knowledge is Power
Bicycle accidents can happen no matter how skilled the cyclist or how careful he or she is trying to stay safe.
If you are in an accident you should seek prompt medical treatment for any injuries that you have sustained.
Make sure to get the insurance, driver’s license and vehicle information from any drivers involved in the collision.
If the police make a report, they will usually obtain this information for you, but you can't always trust them to do everything right.
And that’s why you need a personal injury attorney who focuses on bicycle accident cases.
Assuming there is some injury...and when 200 lbs. meets 2 tons of metal there are...you should do everything possible to document the accident, just as you would in an automobile accident.
If anyone witnessed the accident, you should do your best to obtain those persons contact information.
Liability is very often contested by motorists in bicycle accident cases, so witnesses can be the key factor in proving liability.
If possible, take photos of the accident scene...cell phones are good for this purpose...and later of your injuries and the damage to your bike as well.
Sometimes Saying Less is More
It is important to remember that most motorists and even many police officers often look to place the blame on cyclists in San Francisco.
Do not get adversarial or argumentative with them at the scene; simply state the facts of the accident and try to identify witnesses instead.
Once you've done that, make sure to contact an experienced San Francisco bicycle accident attorney, who understands all of the applicable laws and can best represent your interests.
Also, it is important that you do not fix your bike to preserve it as evidence, or talk to the insurance company without first consulting your personal injury attorney.
Of course, do not give any statements, recorded or otherwise, to any insurance company about the accident or your injuries without first consulting a bike accident attorney.
And never give anyone, especially insurance carrier employees, your social security number, or they will use it to minimize your case.
When choosing your attorney, make sure that you are speaking to someone who respects bicyclists and understands the law surrounding bicycle accidents.
