Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accident Attorneys In Oregon & Washington

Bicycling can be a great way to get around, especially in small or mid-sized cities like Portland, Vancouver and Bend. High fuel costs, the need for physical activity, and a growing bike culture have contributed to the increasing number of cyclists on the roads.

But the quantity of bike lanes and safe streets has not kept up with the growing number of bicycle riders, putting cyclists in danger. About 50,000 cyclists are injured in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. every year.

If you are injured because of the negligence of a driver, you have a right to be compensated for your damages, including medical expenses.

What to do in case of a bicycle crash:

  • Check for injuries: if you or someone else is at all hurt or injured, call 9-1-1 for help. Cyclists are much more likely to be hurt than drivers or passengers, and may not realize they are in pain until the crash adrenaline wears off. If you do have injuries, get medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Exchange information: get the driver’s name, address, driver’s license number and insurance policy information.
  • Get information from witnesses: names, addresses and phone numbers.
  • Take notes: as soon as possible, write down your recollection of the circumstances of the crash.
  • Fill out a DMV traffic accident report.
