What To Do After A Broward County Bicycle Accident

Question: While riding my bike in Broward County, I was hit by a car and injured pretty badly.  What things should a person do after a Broward County bicycle accident?

Answer: The first thing that you need to do after a Broward County bicycle accident is to immediately seek medical attention. Even if it appears you don’t have any visible injuries, a physician should examine you.  Injuries sometimes are not obvious until days or weeks after the accident.  A physician’s report will help you establish a base line of facts about the accident. Here is a list of things to do.

  • Seek medical attention.
  • File a police report regardless of the amount of damages.
  • If there are any witnesses, get their name and contact information.
  • Take pictures of the accident site and of all your injuries.
  • Keep phone logs of the conversations including the date, time and name of the individual who is representing the insurance company of the other driver.  Use caution in answering their questions.

In most instances if you are involved in a bicycle accident where the other vehicle is at fault, their insurance company will usually cover the damages. If the accident is your fault, or the other vehicle does not have coverage, you may be covered under your vehicle’s personal injury protection coverage.
