Brooklyn Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycles are often seen on the streets of Brooklyn, New York. Health conscious individuals commute to work and use bikes as a means of transportation. Bicycles are also used for leisure whether it be cycling down a road or mountain biking.

Across the United States there are more than eighty million bicyclists. More than fifty thousand people are injured in bicycle accidents each year with 90% of fatal bicycle accidents occurring in collisions with a car.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents

  • driver inattention
  • parked vehicle occupant opening a door without checking the road
  • poor roads: potholes, construction, debris, etc.
  • motor vehicle turning into the path of a bicycle
  • motor vehicle failing to stop at a stop sign or failing to yield resulting in a crash with a bike rider
  • motorist fails to check blind spot before changing lanes
  • pull out of driveways or parking spots without looking
  • sideswipe a bicycle on the right side of the road

Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bike Accidents result in serious and catastrophic injuries because riders are unprotected compared to occupants of motor vehicles. Common injuries include:

  • fractures
  • herniated discs
  • spinal cord injury
  • traumatic brain injury
  • cuts, bruises, lacerations, and abrasions
  • hematoma
  • paraplegia; quadriplegia
  • wrongful death

Often bike accidents occur when a motorist drives aggressively, fails to yield to a bicycle rider, or does not understand that all vehicles must share the roadway. Under the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law, specifically section 1231 of the VTL, a bicycle rider has to observe all of the rules of the road in much the same way as a driver of car.

This small law firm was very helpful and friendly. The car accident lawyers treat their clients very well. While my auto accident case was pending, the attorney kept in touch by phone or email and answered my questions. When it came time to go to court, the trial attorney was aggressive fighting for the most possible. Overall excellent.
