Bicycle Accident Lawyers in New York Who Understand the Trauma of a Serious Injury
The newspaper headlines say it all: “Bicyclist Struck Down by Cab In Manhattan Intersection,” “Cyclist Run Over by Truck in Brooklyn,” “Child Riding Bike Killed by Bus in Westchester Crosswalk.” As bicycle accident attorneys in New York, we’ve seen all too many cycling injury and fatality cases. We know that every bicyclist risks his or her life on New York streets, avenues and boulevards.
Whether you dodge swerving cabs on 3rd Ave commuting uptown on your bike each day, ride through Nassau County with a Long Island cycling club on weekends or just go on family bike rides in Central Park on Sundays, if you ride a bike, hazards are everywhere. If you were injured in a bicycle accident, whether you were hit by a car, truck, motorcycle, bus, taxi, limousine, even a racing police car or fire truck, you have rights. We fight aggressively for every client injured in a New York bike accident.
Many of our clients are bicyclists hit by distracted drivers, drunk drivers or speeding drivers. Some were sideswiped by a texting teenager, others hit head-on by a delivery van driver making a cell phone call, others rear-ended by a drunk cabbie at a stoplight. With so many “ghost bike” memorials throughout New York City, marking the spot where a bicyclist was killed, bicycling dangers seem to be getting worse every year.
Aggressive New York Cycling Injury Attorneys Who Will Fight for Your Justice
We are not just knowledgeable bike accident lawyers, we are also bicyclists. We know the hazards bicyclists face every day on New York City’s busy streets. Even bicyclists supposedly protected with bike helmets, reflectors and bike lights can be nearly invisible to motor vehicles, especially in the heavy traffic of rush hour. The consequences of being run over on your bike can be catastrophic. Victims often face traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and broken bones. They may fall into a coma or suffer paralysis and never walk again. And if you lost a loved one who was hit by a vehicle while riding a bike, you need an experienced wrongful death lawyer who will go to bat for you and your family.
