Bike Collision With A Car? Here’s What To Do Next.

by Benjamin Tarshish on July 1, 2019

Although collisions between bicycles and automobiles are fairly rare, the injuries caused by such crashes can be serious. If you or someone you love has been hit by an automobile while bicycling, you should do all you can to protect your rights.

1. Always call the police.

People often underestimate their injuries at the scene because adrenaline masks the physical pain they would otherwise feel. So even if you don’t think you’ve been injured, you should always call the police to the scene of a crash.

If you’re reading this after you’ve left the scene of a collision, you should still call the police. They will ask those involved in the crash what happened and may also speak to other witnesses. The resulting police report will provide a lot of useful information in the event you were injured and need to pursue a claim.

2. Get checked out.

Collisions between cars and bicycles are violent, scary events. If you are involved in a collision, you should seek medical attention right away—regardless if you think you’re alright.
