Whether or not bicyclists ride for recreation, exercise, or for work, they are subjected to numerous dangers when riding. It can be anything from a broken storm grate, a pot hole in the street, a crack in the sidewalk, an extended tree limb or root, a broken manhole, a broken utility box, or the most obvious, a motor vehicle. A bicycle accident can cause severe injuries by the simple fact that bicyclists are extremely vulnerable when they hit the ground or when they are hit by a motor vehicle. The injuries can be minor like some back strain or sprain to major injuries like a broken arm, a broken leg, a traumatic brain injury, and even death. In these types of accidents, evidence must be preserved quickly. The damage to the bicycle or helmet must be preserved. The damage to your clothes. Pictures must be taken of the damage to motor vehicle, broken storm grates, crack in the sidewalk, or tree roots or limb. Sometimes, it is possible to take the items with us, such as torn clothes or damage bicycles. However, there are many times when this isn’t possible because of the severity of the injuries.
