Bicycle Accidents Cause Significant Injuries; Don’t Suffer Alone
Representing Nassau County | Suffolk County | New York City
Countless people ride bikes in New York, especially with the rise of bike-sharing businesses like Citi Bike. But despite efforts to reduce traffic fatalities, bicycle accidents continue to occur at an alarming rate.
At Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, our attorneys and lawyers have extensive experience in a wide range of personal injury cases, including bicycle accidents. We carefully examine each case to determine who could be held responsible. As a result, our clients get the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
When Someone Else Fails To Share The Road
Some New York motorists do not know, or at least drive as if they do not know, that bicyclists are protected by the same rules of the road as they are. Cars do not take priority over bikes. In turn, bicyclists must follow the law as well. Additionally, failure to yield to a bicycle is a misdemeanor in New York.
When bicycles tangle with motor vehicles, the bicyclist usually loses. Serious injuries are common as a result of bicycle accidents, including:
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Collarbone injuries
- Shoulder, back, and wrist injuries
In some instances, a cyclist may be thrown off the bike or be dragged by the motor vehicle, resulting in serious injuries or even death.
