Hingham Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Fighting for Your Right to Justice & Compensation
Bicycling is an excellent way to get around town and exercise when the weather is nice. Unfortunately, despite many laws put in place to protect bicyclists, drivers can be careless when they are sharing the road with cyclists.
If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident caused by the reckless or careless behavior of another person, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation. Our Hingham bicycle accident attorneys at Tennyson Law Firm are here to support you and help you pursue what you may be owed.
Protecting Yourself After a Bicycle Accident
By knowing what you can do for yourself after a bicycle accident, you may be able to maximize your claim. Essentially, you want to gather as much evidence as possible. The other party is not likely to automatically agree to compensate you – even if they do, their insurance company will want proof of liability.
After a bicycle accident, you should:
- Call the police, have them file an accident report, and ask for a copy
- Request contact information from the other party
- Request contact information from any witnesses
- Take as many photos as possible
- Do not make any statements to the other person's insurance company
- Consult with our Hingham personal injury lawyers
