What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Preparing for a Bicycle Injury Lawsuit

A person injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by another individual’s negligence may be entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. These injuries can leave someone with considerable medical costs, wages lost due to an inability to work, and other significant expenses. An award gained through legal action may be able to address these costs, allowing an injured cyclist to get financially back on track after an accident.

If you have sustained an injury because of a negligent driver, you may wish to consider legal action. For more information about your options as an injured bicyclist seeking compensation, contact Jacksonville bicycle accident lawyer Donald Guthrie, P.A., at 904-296-1088.

Post-Accident Steps

The process of filing an injury lawsuit after a bicycle accident can be a complicated one if the injured plaintiff is unprepared. While a legal advisor can help them to investigate, build, and argue their case, mistakes by a bicycle accident victim can make it difficult to prevail.

The following early steps of a lawsuit can prove to be very important later in the process:

  • Gathering evidence of the injury
  • Gathering evidence at the scene of the accident
  • Getting contact information from witnesses
  • Collecting contact information from the other person involved
  • Contacting an attorney early

These cases can prove somewhat complicated, as proving fault can be difficult in certain bicycle accidents. The help of an experienced legal professional can make a significant difference, however.
