A bicyclist is naturally at a huge disadvantage in the event of a collision with a car, truck or other motor vehicle. In a bicycle accident, the bicyclist may be propelled into the air, crushed by wheels of a heavy vehicle or otherwise subjected to tremendous speed and weight of a vehicle weighing two tons or more. Bicycle accidents are often the cause of very serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), back and neck injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries.

Recalling the specifics of your bicycle accident is likely to be painful as well as very difficult, because a seriously injured person often has no memory of the trauma at first. Bicycle accidents are often hit-and-run accidents. Even when a driver is identified, it may be challenging to determine who was negligent: a bicyclist, a motorist or a third party such as a municipality responsible for signs and road maintenance.
The sooner an investigator is on the job with regard to your bicycle accident, the greater opportunities there are to obtain the valuable evidence needed to understand what happened and why. Eyewitness testimony of bystanders and passersby can be immensely helpful to accident reconstructionists who seek to tell the story of how a bicycle accident occurred. Fresh photos of the scene and other direct evidence may help an investigator determine the cause of an accident.
