The Damage to your Bike is Evidence - Vancouver Bicycle Accident

Your front tire might be bent.

There may be scratces on the right side of your handle bars.

Or maybe your gearshift is bent.

Whatever the case, the damage to your bike caused by your bike accident might tell a story.

It may be evidence.

The evidence necessary to prove who was at fault for your accident.

And like any other type of evidence it needs to be preserved.

So how do you preserve this kind of  evidence?

For starters you need to photograph the damage to your bike as soon as possible.

And PLEASE don't run out and get the damage to your bike repaired before getting it examined and documented by an experienced bike repair mechanic.

In fact, I'd suggest you hold off doing anything to your bike until you've spoken with a lawyer who's handled bike injury claims.

You see, when responsibliity for a car accident is in dispute, the damage to the cars involved is often key evidence.

Sometimes accident reconstructionist engineers can work backwards from the damage to the vehicles to prove how the accident ocurred.

And the same holds true for bike accidents.

Interested in talking about how bike accident claims work?
