Attorney Advice: How to Respond to a Bicycle Accident

Attorney Advice How to Respond to a Bicycle AccidentIf you or someone you care about has been in a bike accident in Maryland, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with reliable Frederick, MD bike accident lawyers to help you determine what your next steps should be.

As you can probably imagine, the injuries a person may sustain after a terrifying bicycle accident can be both excruciating and expensive. While in the moment victims are unlikely to be worried about money, they may soon find out that their bank accounts have been drained in order to pay off medical care bills. The cost for emergency care, hospitalization and treatment can be enough to put most people into a financial crisis.

Here at Cohen & Cohen, we strongly believe that you should not have to suffer because a driver decided to act without care towards others who may be sharing the road. If you are interested in taking legal action, then we recommend meeting with our Frederick, MD bike accident lawyers as soon as possible.

How to Respond to Being Hit By a Car

The biggest priority after being struck by a vehicle while riding your bike, is to call 911 so an officer and ambulance can arrive at the scene. Many bicycle riders may feel fine at the time so they do not get medical attention, then find out hours or days later that they are suffering from a potentially life-threatening injury. It sounds bizarre but it can happen, as our body often floods our system with adrenaline after such a terrible event. Because of the shock, we may not feel the extent of our injuries until a later time.

The help of Frederick, MD bike accident lawyers may make you feel less alone, and will help and guide you through the aftermath.

If you or someone you love is ever hit by a car, here are some tips to remember:

  1. Call 911 right away
  2. Get the all the driver’s information
  3. Contact your insurance company
  4. Request a police report
  5. Follow doctor’s orders when healing
  6. Gather evidence for the lawsuit
  7. Request copies of medical documents
  8. Obtain a statement form employer if you missed work
  9. Hire an attorney for guidance

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
