We defend victims in bicycle accidents

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. Small bicycles provide no protection from a collision with a larger truck, so it is understandable that bicycle accidents are often treated very seriously and leave the bicyclist with serious injuries.

Negligent New York biker allegedly causes bus accident

Whether because their riders are trying to save on gas, or because they have to move quickly to make their deliveries on time, bicycles are a common sight on the streets of New York City. Unfortunately, due to their size and mobility, some bicyclists take liberties with the rules of the road. This can sometimes lead to unfortunate bicycle accidents wherein a pedestrian is injured or some other damage is caused. 

New York bicyclist seriously injured in hit and run

When road accidents come to mind, you might think of cars or trucks, perhaps even motorcycles. One thing many people forget is that bicycles are also a common sight on modern roads. Commuters, delivery workers, children and countless others use the roads of New York each day. However, cyclists are vulnerable and can be hard to spot. In the event of a bike accident, the cyclist often suffers serious injuries.

New York City faces a problem that few other cities in the country face: an abundance of bicyclists on the road. The addition of bicyclists to the constant city traffic can add another level of complexity, both from the legal perspective and driving perspective, to daily travel. Bicycle accidents can be very devastating and complicated. In instances where a bicyclist hits a pedestrian, there is employment liability to think about, and in instances where a bicyclist is struck by a vehicle, the damages can be catastrophic to the cyclist.
