Bicycle Accident Evidence Preservation

Evidence preservation is important in all accident cases, but it is essential to building a strong case when the accident involves a bicyclist. That is because all too frequently the bicyclist is presumed at fault.

Critical evidence includes:

  • Pictures from the scene showing condition of the road, evidence of skid marks, signage, any obstruction to visibility, etc.
  • Pictures of damaged property
  • Bike helmet, clothing, shoes
  • Motor vehicle braking system inspection
  • Check for defective parts
  • Witness interviews

Types of Bicycle Collisions

Motor vehicle operators do not always respect bicyclist's rights. The following are examples of driver negligence that may lead to a bicycle accident head injury or wrongful death:

  • An automobile driver may turn directly in front of a bicyclist.
  • A motor vehicle driver may fail to yield the right of way to a bicyclist when entering the street from a driveway or parking spot.
  • A driver's failure to yield at an intersection, whether at a stop sign or traffic light.
  • A motorist under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you or a family member was injured in a bike accident, you may have a claim against the at-fault driver.
