New York & Long Island Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Because so many people are turning to alternative methods of transportation, thousands of New York residents have begun riding their bikes to get around town. Bicyclists in New York have the same right to use the roads as the drivers of motor vehicles. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents continue to occur at an alarming rate in both New York City and Long Island.
Bicycle accidents are most commonly caused by driver negligence and unsafe road conditions. If a bicyclist is injured in accident because of a hazardous or dangerous road condition, the city government responsible for maintaining the road can be held liable for damages. In addition, if the accident was caused by a negligent driver, the driver will be held liable for damages as well.
Because bicycles lack the protection of a steel frame, seat belt, and airbags, many victims of bicycles accidents sustain multiple serious injuries, such as:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Head injury
- Broken or fractured bones
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding
- Crush organs or limbs
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Permanent Disability
Not only are these types of injuries incredibly painful, but they can also affect the victim’s ability to work or perform basic daily tasks. Without the ability to work, many victims are not able to pay their mounting medical bills and household expenses. This can lead to overwhelming stress, psychological distress, or depression.
