Injured in a Bicycle Accident?
Know Your Rights.

Bicycling isn’t solely reserved for a leisure activity anymore; people are increasingly riding bicycles on public roads as a means of transportation. Sadly, this has lead to an increase in the number of bicycle accident cases in Maryland as a result of automobile negligence.

The offices of Albers & Associates are conveniently located in Columbia, Towson, Frederick, and Westminster, Maryland. Our offices service the entirety of Baltimore County, Carroll County, Frederick County, and Howard County, MD with top-rated legal services.

Injured in a Bicycle Accident?
Follow These Steps.

Bicycle accidents are sudden, unexpected, and often result in serious and long-term injuries and inconveniences. If you’re involved in a bicycle accident in Maryland, here is what you should do:

Call the police and seek medical attention right away

If involved in a Maryland bicycle crash, the first thing to do is dial 9-1-1. If you’re hurt, you need to seek medical attention; failing to seek medical attention within a reasonable amount of time of the bicycle accident may later be used to suggest you were not injured badly, if at all. After speaking with police, be sure to get the police report number so you can obtain a copy of it later.

Document Everything

Any accident will be extremely stressful, and stress can lead to forgetting crucial details. Be sure to document as much as you can about your Maryland bicycle accident as it happens. Here are some things you should document, or have someone document for you if your injuries keep you from doing so:

  • Get the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident
  • Get the contact and insurance information of the other driver(s) involved
  • Take pictures of vehicles involved
  • Take pictures of your injuries
  • Take pictures of the accident site
  • Write down everything you remember about how the accident happened
  • Write down what others involved in the accident say to you
  • Keep note of your health the days following the accident

Keep Up with your Medical Appointments

It’s important you keep all appointments with your doctor and strictly follow your doctor’s advice. Your health is the most important thing when it comes to your bicycle accident—so don’t skip out on any appointments. It will also help your personal injury settlement case to have proven and documented doctor’s visits. We suggest our bicycle accident clients keep a medical diary detailing all doctor visits, how they feel each day, and how their injuries impact daily activities.

Call a Maryland Bicycle Accident Attorney

If you are injured in a bicycle accident in Maryland, call a local Maryland bicycle accident attorney immediately. Do not speak to the other driver’s insurance company or attorney—and definitely, do not sign any documents or give recorded statements. Work with a team that will help you make the right moves when you hit a cyclist.
