Get Out of the Road: Get yourself and your bike out of the roadway to a safe spot.
Take Photos at Crash Scene: Take photos of the vehicle that hit you, including the license plates, the intersection where crash occurred, insurance card, registration and driver license of the person who hit you.
Call Police: Ask police to include your version of the crash into the report. Report any injury or pain you are experiencing, no matter how small.
Get Immediate Medical Attention: If you do not go to the hospital from the scene, be sure to go to your primary care doctor or clinic (as soon as possible) to document your injuries, even if they appear minor. Have someone take photos of your injuries.
Preserve Evidence: Don't attempt to fix anything or have your bike repaired. Don't wash your clothing and don't send your bike, helmet, or any other equipment to anyone other than your attorney. Take photos of your equipment and bike.
Get Driver and Witness Info: Get contact info for anyone who witnessed the crash.
Call Bike Crash Attorney: don't communicate with any insurance company before consulting an attorney. Anything you say to the insurance company could be used against you later. Sometimes a letter from an attorney to the insurance company can resolve issues and avoid legal pitfalls.
Meet Attorney at Crash Scene: As soon as you are able, make plans to meet your attorney at the crash scene to review details. Alternatively, the attorney can investigate the scene, take photos, and measurements.
