I have been injured in a bike accident in San Diego, what information should I collect?

Make sure you get any and all personal and contact information about the person who hurt you as well as their insurance information including the company, the agent, and their policy number. Keep all documents relating to the bike accident whether they are police reports, witness statements or insurance documents.  Take photos of you and anyone else’s injuries, property damage and the scene of the accident. We recommend that you not speak with the insurance company about the bike accident or the personal injury without speaking to a lawyer first.
