It is a common phrase to hear when you are feeling down on your luck: at least you have your health. Only when you are ill or injured do you realize just how true this statement is, as health issues can negatively affect your entire life and make it very difficult to accomplish day-to-day tasks. Depending on the severity of your health issue, you may need even more serious medical care, such as surgery. Unfortunately, this can present its own problems.
It is important to remember that bicyclists can cause serious damage to pedestrians in the event of an accident, and cyclists everywhere are encouraged to take extra care in the heavily populated streets of New York to avoid striking pedestrians.

A collision with a motor vehicle can cause serious or fatal damage to a bicyclist.
Injuries sustained from an accident on a construction site can be very complex to manage from a legal perspective. There are usually many factors at play in such accidents, and since so few are alike, a great deal of the case is dependent on the circumstances of the accident.

What you might not know is that you could also be entitled to compensation from other sources.
Anybody who has been on the streets of New York knows just how dangerous the city can be for anyone driving or riding on the street. Many couriers are employed in the city and use bikes to quickly navigate the crowded streets, but unfortunately the dangers are perhaps even more serious for them.

The Mazda driver was killed, and the other driver reported no injuries.

From the cell phones that allow us to contact our loved ones when we are apart to the cars that allow us to get to work and school, we employ hundreds of devices on a daily basis.

The dangers that bicyclists pose to pedestrians are also dangers that bicyclists themselves face with regard to larger vehicles such as cars.
