Can struck bicyclists receive damages?

Bicycles can be used for leisure, exercise or as a means of transportation. When riding a bicycle, it is known that people should wear helmets. Although this offers protection, it is no match for a motor vehicle accident. If a bicycle is involved in an accident with a car, the rider may face serious injuries. The weight of a car is overbearing in comparison to a bicycle. A bicycle cannot provide security against a car. If you are a victim of a bike accident, you may be able to seek compensation. You should always go to the doctor to get your injuries checked first. This will provide documentation of your injuries and your visit. With this information, you can build your case against the liable party. If you are able to preserve evidence from the accident, such as taking pictures of the scene or talking to witnesses, you should do so to better establish your case. This information may help prove negligence on behalf of the other party that was involved in the incident. With this proven, you may be able to acquire damages that can help pay for the cost of physical injuries.

What can I do after a motorcycle accident?

Motorcycles can be a vehicle that people use to get around. Although these vehicles can be fun and daring, they can also be quite dangerous. Since they do not provide much protection, individuals riding a motorcycle can become gravely injured in an accident. Motorcycles are usually not covered under the Personal Injury Protection plan that most cars are covered under. This is due to the more dangerous nature of motorcycles. When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to seek medical attention from a healthcare professional. This will make sure that your injuries are examined and that your health is stable. During this visit, doctors will document your injuries and the extent of how serious they are. This is helpful in building a case. The documentation of your injuries can be used to prove the impact that the accident had on your life and how much you may need to recover for the cost of medical bills.
