New York City Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Attorneys Helping Bicycle Accident Victims
With increasing gas prices, shortage of parking spaces and expensive parking lots, many New Yorkers have turned to riding bicycles as a preferred mode of transportation. It is a convenient and inexpensive way to travel on the busy streets of New York. But this convenience also accompanies with it dangers that can be devastating to cyclists. The sad truth is that many motorists do not respect a bicyclist’s right to share the roads, leading to serious and life altering accidents.
At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek P.C., our New York City bicycle attorneys have handled all types of bicycle injury claims. We will work closely with investigators in tracking down eyewitnesses, collecting evidence, and reconstructing what happened during your accident. Although we cannot make the pain go way, we can help you get the compensation you deserve and get the medical attention you need.
Common Bicycle Accidents
In the majority of cases, bike accidents are caused by the negligent driving of other motorists on the road. The following are some common types of collisions that bicyclists may be injured in:
- A motor vehicle driver turning directly in front of a bicyclist
- A driver entering the street onto traffic in front of a bicyclist
- A driver’s failure to yield at an intersection or running a stop sign or red light
- A driver’s inattention to the cyclist on the road
- A motor vehicle driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Regardless of what type of negligence caused your New York City bicycle accident, our team of dedicated lawyers will work hard to get you the compensation that you deserve.
New York City Bicycle Accident Injuries
Because bicycles lack the protection of a steel frame, seat belts, and airbags, the majority of bicycle accident victims sustain serious injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones and fractures
- Head injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Serious scarring and disfigurement
- Permanent disability
These types of injuries are not only painful, but can also affect your ability to work or perform basic daily tasks. Without the ability to work, many victims are unable to pay their extensive medical bills and maintain their financial livelihood.
We understand that bicyclists more so than anyone need attorneys because they may have no other recourse if they are to suffer serious injuries. This is exactly why we make it our top priority to help you get the compensation you need.
