There are a wide variety of injuries that can happen in an Indiana bicycle accident. If you're in an accident, you should attempt to do the following because it could mean the difference between getting reimbursed for your losses and not getting reimbursed.
Call Law Enforcement
If the accident happened on the roadway, call the cops, so the incident is documented. Besides documenting the accident, the officer will note if there were any laws that were violated and he or she will also note documents.
If there were witnesses, get their contact information. I know you may not want to bother or intrude on other peoples privacy, but sometime later you may need the witness to support your story or how the events took place.
Document the Scene and Injuries
If you are physically able, take pictures of the accident scene and later if you have road rash or any other injuries that can be seen, take photos of your injuries. Sometime later the accident scene can change and your injuries can heal so, it is best the get this information as soon as practical.
Get Yourself Checked Out
Finally, be sure to get checked out by a doctor, a hospital even if you think you are going to be okay. There could be something going on under the surface that needs to be addressed immediately.
