In case you get hit by a car

What to Do In Case of a Bicycle Accident:
Your first priority is to seek medical attention if needed for yourself or anyone who might have been injured.
If you have been injured, request to be transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Regardless of the circumstances, report the accident to the police and make sure a police report is filed.
Record the name, address and phone number of the other driver. Write down the make and license number of all vehicles involved. You’ll want to get as much information as you can about the other driver’s insurance agent, policy and insurance company.
Record the names, addresses and phone numbers of passengers and anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
Be careful of what you say and don’t give a statement to anyone until you consult with a lawyer.
Seek the advice of an experienced California bicycle injury attorney immediately to begin protecting your rights.
Examine the damage carefully. Take photos if possible, particularly if the accident occurred on private property, such as a parking lot.
Stay calm.
