Bossier City Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Representing Injured Cyclists & Their Families

When a bicycle accident happens, it can cause serious injuries and even death to the cyclist. In Louisiana, bicyclists have the same rights to use the road as motorists do. However, as a cyclist, you may be at a higher risk of being involved in an accident because you are less visible to drivers and more vulnerable to injuries. If you are a cyclist who has been involved in a crash, it is important that you take immediate action to secure legal representation from a trusted attorney.

What to Do After a Bicycle Accident

After a crash, it is normal to feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. By following the steps below, you can help protect your rights and build a strong case to hold the at-fault party accountable for their negligent actions.

After a bicycle accident:

  • Check for Injuries: Immediately assess yourself and others for injuries. If anyone is injured, call 911. Don't underestimate your injuries – symptoms can appear hours or days later.

  • Get to a safe location: If you're in the roadway and able to move, relocate to a safe area to avoid further harm.

  • Call the police: Even if your injuries are minor, it is important to call the police to have an official police report filed.

  • Seek medical attention: Visit a healthcare provider as soon as possible, even if you feel fine. Some injuries are not immediately apparent.

  • Document the scene: If you are physically able to, take pictures of the accident site, any injuries sustained, and damage to your bicycle and any involved vehicles. Also, take note of the environmental and traffic conditions.

  • Exchange information: Get the contact and insurance information from the driver involved in the crash, as well as any witnesses.

  • Do not admit fault: Even if you think you might have contributed to the accident, do not admit fault at the scene of the accident.

  • Call your insurance company: Inform your insurance company about the accident, but refrain from making statements about fault until you have consulted with an attorney.

  • Consult With a Legal Expert: Consider consulting with an attorney experienced in bike accidents to discuss your situation before agreeing to any settlements, ensuring your rights are fully protected and you're compensated fairly.
