We were contacted last night by a person who had been injured in a bicycle accident in Naperville. He was asking us whether or not he did anything wrong and whether or not there are common mistakes that persons who are involved in bicycle accidents make. We said the most important thing you can do is document what occurred. Unlike a motor vehicle collision, sometimes persons who were on bikes who were involved in accidents with motor vehicles don’t call the police. They absolutely should.
You want to make sure that everything is documented. You want to make sure that everything is reported to the authorities. This way, we have written proof of what occurred, how it occurred, and when it occurred.
