What to do after a cycle accident

We never expect to get in an accident, especially a serious cycling accident. But no matter how safe you try to be, someone else could make a terrible mistake.

According to personal injury lawyer, Henry Carus, cycling accidents are becoming more common. The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) published new statistics showing that more than 40 cyclists were hospitalised over a 12-month period due to a cycling accident in the Melbourne CBD, of which more than 20 spent over two weeks in hospital.

If you’re ever in a cycling accident, here are some basic steps you should follow:

  1. take photos of the accident site, your bicycle, the location, and the car involved
  2. get the names and contact details of any witnesses
  3. come up with a short statement to describe the accident
  4. report the accident to the police – use your short statement and give them the names of any witnesses
  5. report the accident to the TAC – again, use your statement, which will be recorded on your claim form
  6. if you seek medical treatment, also give a short, concise description of the accident and how you were injured
  7. engage a specialist personal injury law firm such as Henry Carus + Associates to get the right advice and prepare you for any discussions with the TAC.

In following the steps above you can ensure that you get the support you need from the TAC, and the compensation you deserve.
