Many Bicycle Accidents involve a hit and run.
If you are involved in a hit and run accident, you should immediately report this accident to the Police. You may lose all of your rights to recover for the accident if you do not report it to the Police. If for some reason you don’t report it to the police, and you are injured, you must call an ambulance, and have a report completed even if you do not go in the ambulance to the hospital. This ambulance (EMS) report can preserve your rights as well.
The next thing that you should do is obtain the name, phone number and addresses of all witnesses to the accident.
You should take photos of the accident scene and you should take photos of all damage at the scene of the accident.
Most of all, you should obtain medical assistance for your injuries.
In Pennsylvania, you can collect benefits for your injuries and medical bills associated with your injuries though the Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan, 75 P.S.C.A.§1751 et seq. Under this Statute, the Commonwealth will provide benefits for your medical bills up to $5,000.00, and for your injuries up to $15,000.00 if there is no other source of benefit for your injuries and you report the accident to a governmental agency.
It is very important to call the police when you are involved in a hit and run, and to seek medical attention for your injuries.
