1. Seek emergency medical treatment for yourself or for your loved ones and anyone else in the accident.​

If you call us up from the hospital (or ambulance!) before you receive any medical treatment, we're going to tell you to go to a doctor, get treated, make sure you're okay, and then give us a call afterwards. Your health and safety is the most important thing to take care of after an auto accident.​

2. Contact law enforcement as soon as possible to generate a police report with all the identifying information about the incident.​

Usually the police arrive at the scene of an accident, but not always. Make sure a police report is generated because it can clarify the facts of what happened and be an asset to your case against the person who caused the accident.​

If you go to the doctor and then do not follow what the doctor tells you to do to treat yourself, your auto accident claim will be impacted negatively.  If you have to go to trial against an insurance company, they will most definitely say that your injuries could not have been that serious because you didn't treat them properly.​

3. Follow up on any medical treatment referral from the providers in step one. ​

4. Contact an experienced Florida bicycle accident attorney​

Almost any lawyer will chat with you about your case. So, before you speak to an insurance adjuster, contact a lawyer. Find out what their options are and make sure they are following the steps that they would advise. Lawyers can give you helpful information whether or not you sign up with them. If you'd like to speak with us at Taft Street, give us a call (833) 823-8529 or click here.​

5. Talk to your insurance company to report the accident and let them know what is going on right away.​

Your insurance company is there to help you. They should know you were in an accident. You can find out policy specifics like what your underinsured motorist coverage is. You can also tell them you're not sure if you're filing a claim yet, but you want them to be aware of the accident.​

6. Keep a journal of your recovery​

What steps should you take you are injured in a Bicycle Accident in Florida?

7. Keep track of time missed at work​

There may be peaks and valleys in terms of your health. You might be feeling very good one day, then very bad the next day, and very good the day after that. If you keep a daily journal, it can be very simple to keep track. I usually recommend that clients get a notebook because it’s useful to keep track of certain things including how they are feeling, sleep, appetite, mobility, lack of mobility, moods, and all the things that are really important throughout the claims process. 

A common occurrence is when a victim of an bicycle accident has seemingly minor injuries and they can feel fine after the accident. Instead of taking the ambulance to the hospital, they get a ride home. Later on, however, the pain manifests. It could be that night, or days later.


Once the adrenaline from the accident wears off and your body starts to feel pain, you might realize you have a claim for bike accident damages in Florida.  It is important to seek medical attention as soon as pain manifests if you haven't already been treated.


When seeking medical attention, it is important to tell your doctor that you have been injured in an auto accident and that the accident is listed as a cause of the pain. Medical providers and insurance companies use specific coding when treating injuries and auto accident victims tend to receive similar types of care.


So if you have sustained a back injury, neck injury, or other type of injury in a bike accident, it is important that the physician notes that in your medical records.
