Had a Crash?

Here's What You Should Do if You are in a Crash

Crashes do happen.  If you've had a crash with motor vehicle, we recommend following these three steps:

  1. Seek medical attention if needed
  2. File a police report
  3. Contact a lawyer to make sure your rights are protected (see list of lawyers below)

For more detail, read the document "What To Do If You Are Hit By A Car" published by the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition.  The insurance companies for drivers are always looking to minimize any costs to the insurance company or their customers.  Cyclists and pedestrians don't have this built in protection.  There are many Vermont lawyers who will provide a free initial consultation to cyclists and pedestrians.

 

LAWYER REFERRAL PROGRAM

To make sure that cyclists and pedestrians have an easy way to find a lawyer, we've established a lawyer referral program.  We do not endorse or recommend any lawyer.  The lawyers below have stated that they have met at least one of the following criteria:

1) Had past experience representing a cyclist or a pedestrian in a crash

2) Are a member of Local Motion and/or the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition

3) Are willing to offer discounts to Local Motion or VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition members
