Quality Out of Control
So you’ve been in a bicycle accident and you’ve ruled out any external factors or your own handling that could have caused the mishap. Could it be something within the mechanics of the machine that created the issue? It is entirely possible. You should, however, take care of a few immediate issues:
- Seek Medical Care: Depending on the extent of your injuries, a visit to the doctor may be in order. Not only will this take care of any wounds you may have suffered, knowingly or unknowingly, but it will provide a personal injury lawyer documented evidence of the extent of your injuries should you move ahead with a lawsuit.
- Photograph the Scene: The proliferation of smart phones, camera phones and increasingly smaller cameras in general has opened up a wide avenue for evidence collection, even directly after a wreck. Be sure to take as much visual evidence as possible immediately following the accident – or have a friend or family member do so for you. This kind of documentation can be invaluable for any lawsuit you decide to pursue in the long run.
- Store the Bike: Above all, do not get rid of the most concrete pieces of evidence you have! Even if the bike has yet to be recalled, a specialist will be able to determine if shoddy work was involved and the degree of negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Keep the bicycle in a secure location, out of the elements and somewhere you’ll be able to retrieve it for review by your counsel.
- Speak With a Qualified Personal Injury Attorney: Whether you’ve confirmed a recall notice has been announced for your bike or you have reason to suspect the bike manufacturers are at-fault for your injuries, speaking with an experience personal injury lawyer can help in a variety of ways. Not only could you seek immediate and just compensation, you may be helping other riders avoid a similar fate.
