How the legal system works if you're in an accident:
- What should be reported and to whom
- If you need medical treatment, some unexpected sources of medical insurance
- Figuring out issues of fault - rules of road for bikes, Minnesota No-Fault Act (you can get up to $20,000 in medical coverage)
- Take care of yourself first- don't ride your bike without inspecting your body, and your bike
