What to Do after a Bicycle Accident

Unfortunately, bicycle accidents are all-too-common occurrences in the state of Indiana. When automobile or truck drivers don’t pay attention, are distracted, or fail to yield to bicyclists, serious accidents can happen. Because bicyclists are relatively unprotected, even with the proper safety gear, they typically suffer the brunt of the injuries. These injuries are often severe and can include anything from cuts and scrapes to broken bones to major head trauma.

After a bicycle accident, it’s crucial that you seek medical attention right away. If possible, take pictures of the accident and obtain any witness statements. Make sure you get the contact information of anyone else involved, including the driver of the car. You’ll also want to contact a bicycle accident attorney in Bloomington who can help you understand your legal options. At Bunger & Robertson, we have helped many injured victims successfully secure recoveries after someone else’s negligent actions caused them harm. We are prepared to fight for your rights and the justice you deserve.

Contact Bunger & Robertson online or by phone at (812) 359-0196 to get started with your initial consultation.

Recovering Damages: Understanding Your Rights

While every situation is different, and the recoverable damages to which an injured victim is entitled differs greatly from one case to the next, most bicycle accident victims are able to recover certain damages. First and foremost, you must establish that your accident was caused by another person, company, or entity’s negligence. The accident may have been a result of someone else’s negligence if it was caused by a speeding driver, defective bicycle part, unsafe road design, distracted pedestrian, or any number of factors.

If your bicycle accident was caused by negligence, you may be entitled to compensation to help with any of the following:

  • Medical expenses, hospital bills, and ambulance fees
  • Lost income and/or wages from time taken off work to obtain treatment
  • Reduced/lost earning ability if your injuries prevent you from returning to work
  • Ongoing medical care, including physical rehabilitation therapy
  • Emotional distress, pain, and suffering caused by the accident/injuries
  • Loss of enjoyment or reduced quality of life following the accident

If you lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, you may be able to pursue compensation for medical treatment, funeral costs, financial hardship, loss of consortium, and more.
