ST. PETERSBURG BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
As a bike rider himself Attorney Derek Bernstein is fully aware of the devastating impact that a bicycle accident can leave on yourself and your family. Most riders like myself love the freeing feeling of riding a bike. No constraints around you, just you and the road. However, when it comes to a crash involving a bicycle, it’s just you and the road. You need someone on your side that understands bikes, injuries and the law. Attorney Derek Bernstein knows all those things. Below are some of the most common questions Bernstein Law gets regarding bicycle crashes.
What do I do immediately after the bicycle accident?
- Move your bicycle to a safe place – If you are physically able, move it to a safe place and move away from the roadway. If you cannot, move yourself to a safe location.
- Try not to move much – When you get hit on a bicycle usually you are in pretty rough shape. Try not to move your neck and body. Wait for EMS to arrive at the scene if you cannot move.
- Call for emergency response if you can – Call the Sheriff, police or Fire to come out to the scene and assess the situation. Get medical attention if needed and always get a police report.
- Do not make statements of fault – You were just in a crash. Do not be quick to judge what happened. Do not admit to the other driver or anyone that it was your fault until Bernstein Law does an investigation.
- Get information from the other driver – This includes Insurance and also taking photos of the vehicles and location.
When to hire an attorney after a bicycle accident?
In simple terms immediately. Insurance companies who know you are not represented will try to negotiate with you knowing you do not know the law or medicine. They will try to get you to make statements against your interests and try to convince you that your injuries are only temporary. It is a shame when someone settles a case on their own only to find out their medical condition is way worse than they thought.
When you have representation like Bernstein Law we will make sure you don’t get those harassing phone calls, don’t make unnecessary statements and don’t fall into the traps of the insurance company.
As a rider Attorney Bernstein also knows that your ride maybe your only mode of transportation. We can come to you for your consultation if necessary.
