Best Way to get Compensation for Bike AccidentPosted on February 28, 2015
After you have had a bike accident, it can be difficult to get back on track. Especially if you were injured seriously. You may have had to take time off work, racked up some serious medical bills, and may have been injured to the extent where you cannot work at your previous job anymore. Either way you need to be compensated for your accident. Here are some ways to ensure that you get compensation for your damages.
Write Everything Down
As soon as you are able, write everything down that you remember about your accident. Where you were, what you were doing, and what you saw or heard before the accident. If there were witnesses, identify them by their name or physical description. Write down anything said to you. Keep track of what your injuries were, medical bills, days missed from work, and the pain you are feeling. All this information will be valuable in constructing a case to get proper compensation.
Talk To An Attorney
After you have written everything down, call a local attorney in your area and schedule a consultation. Many attorneys provide a short consultation for free. Come prepared with your written notes and any questions you have about your case. A good attorney shall remain attentive and explain a strategy that they would employ if you were to choose them for the case. It helps to hire an attorney who is familiar with bike accidents in particular. After you have attended a consultation, you should have a good idea on who you would like to hire. They would be able to show you the next steps in the process.
