FAQs: Your Rights after a Bicycle Accident in Hazleton, PA
Q: What should I do at the scene of a bicycle accident?
If you are still at the scene of the accident, there are steps you need to take and mistakes you need to avoid. We recommend that you:
- Remain at the scene until you have the opportunity to speak with the police;
- Collect the other driver’s insurance information (if applicable), but avoid discussing the details of the accident;
- Collect contact information from any witnesses; and
- Take as many photos as possible.
The caveat to all of this is that your first priority should be obtaining medical treatment for your injuries. You should see a doctor as soon as possible. If you need emergency medical care, you should take an ambulance to the hospital.
Q: What if I was partially at fault in the accident?
Do not assume that you were partially at fault. Even if you think that you may have done something to trigger the accident or exacerbate your injuries, there are too many potential factors to make this type of assumption without the benefit of a thorough investigation. That said, even if you were partially at fault, under Pennsylvania law, you could still be entitled to partial compensation.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a bicycle accident lawyer?
With us, it costs you nothing out of pocket to hire an attorney. We advance all of the costs of pursuing your case, and we do not get reimbursed or paid unless we win.
