Your Bicycle Accident Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

Following a bicycle accident, there are always more questions than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer any questions you have about your injury case.

  1. Pullover and call the police. No matter how minor or significant the accident is, if your car is driveable, pull over to the side of the road to avoid additional collisions. It is illegal to flee an accident scene. Doing so will make the situation worse. Turn on your hazards and use road flares and reflectors if you have them. Call the police.
  2. Seek medical attention immediately for your injuries. Check to see if you or anyone else is injured. If so, get medical help first. You may not feel any apparent injuries or pain immediately following the crash, but symptoms can show up days or weeks later. Delaying medical care can not only put your long-term health at risk but hurt your potential accident claim.
  3. Record facts and take pictures. Gather information as much as possible about the accident. Take photos of any damage. Get the other driver’s name, address, license plate number, insurance, year, make, model, and vehicle registration. Be sure to get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses too.
  4. Report the accident to your insurance. Contact your insurance company as soon as you can following a crash (most policies require an immediate accident report). Consulting your insurance will allow you to discuss your medical benefits and begin your claim. Keep a detailed log of any medical bills, updates, changes in health, and crash-related expenses.
  5. Contact an experienced accident attorney. A team of knowledgeable injury lawyers can assist you every step of the way. They will take immediate action on your case to preserve evidence, examine the existing case law, and find the best expert witnesses in the country on your behalf. Your lawyer will put you in the best position possible to achieve the compensation you deserve.

After an accident, ask the other driver for their:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Insurance information
  • Name of the insurance company
  • Insurance agent’s name
  • Policy number

If the other driver refuses to provide their insurance information, ask them for their home address, drivers’ license number, and license plate number. If you can’t safely obtain this information either, recording the driver’s license plate number could be enough for the police or the insurance company to track down the driver.

If you have been involved in an auto accident, it is essential that you seek out medical attention if you are feeling any pain or discomfort. The full extent of your injuries may not be immediately evident to you, and waiting to seek medical attention until the pain worsens could have long-lasting consequences.

In many cases, injuries from a car wreck are not noticeable until days, weeks, or months afterward. One way to prevent this from happening is to see a doctor as soon as you can following the accident. Medical professionals can provide you with a routine check-up and diagnose you with an injury that may not be obvious to you.

Some of the most commonly overlooked injuries resulting from an auto accident are soft tissue injuries. These injuries refer to damage done to ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The most frequently occurring soft tissue injury in a car accident is whiplash, an injury to the neck caused by a sudden movement of the head. According to the American Chiropractic Association, two out of three people involved in motor vehicle accidents suffer from whiplash.

Roughly 2.44 million people were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2015. That averages to about 6,693 injured people every day. These injuries range from minor to severe, and some injured persons may be left with long-term disability. However, no matter the severity of your injury, our attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure your rights as an injured victim are upheld.

Among the injuries we see most often in our auto accident clients are:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Strained ligaments
  • Back muscle sprains
  • Scrapes and Cuts
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Bruising
  • Contusions
  • Broken ribs
  • Internal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Jaw injuries
  • Loss of teeth
  • Neck injuries
  • Crushed larynx
  • Crushed trachea
  • Broken neck
  • Pelvic injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Penetration injuries

If you were involved in a crash in Texas, you have the right to pursue financial recovery for your damages, including mental anguish, pain and suffering, earning capacity, or lost wages, impairment, scarring, loss of consortium, loss of value in a relationship and the adverse driver has a duty to make you whole.
