We Can Help After Any Bicycle Crash

Bicycle accidents in the Bronx often lead to severe injuries. While you or your loved one are recovering, it’s tough to figure out what to do next. We recommend giving our lawyers a call. We know the law and how to move forward.

Our first task is collecting evidence to find out what happened and who was responsible. Then we can demand compensation from the right person or business. If you were struck by a car while riding a bike, we might demand compensation from the at-fault driver and their insurer. In other circumstances, we may recommend filing a lawsuit.

We’ll always explain New York law and your options, and we’ll answer all of your questions throughout the process. We believe in being available for our clients.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in the Bronx

Bronx bicycle accidents often involve:

  • Speed-related crashes
  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Unprotected left-turn crashes
  • Right-turn crashes
  • Blindspot accidents
  • Passing accidents
  • Bike lane accidents
  • “Dooring” accidents
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Bike vs. cab accidents
  • Bike vs. bus accidents
  • Bike vs. commercial vehicles

We will get to the bottom of what caused the crash and who was at fault. You’ll need those facts to win compensation.

We Look for Traffic Law Violations

To win compensation in your Bronx bike accident case, we have to prove someone else was negligent. That means establishing four elements:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care (all drivers owe everyone an ordinary duty of care)
  • That person failed to uphold their duty of care
  • Their breach caused an accident
  • You were hurt in the accident

We have years of experience building strong, successful cases. Let us do the same for you.

As we investigate, we look for evidence of a traffic violation. Both the driver and you, on your bike, had to obey the rules of the road. We’ll see if there’s any sign the driver violated the law or was careless, like by failing to look out for cyclists when making an unprotected left turn.

New York Helmet Laws

New York law doesn’t require adults to wear helmets, though it’s recommended. Children under 14 years must wear a helmet while riding a bike.

Many of our clients wonder whether it matters if they were wearing a helmet or not. It depends on the case. If you weren’t wearing a helmet while cycling around the Bronx and suffered a head injury in an accident, the at-fault driver might argue you were negligent, too. We’re prepared to deal with these claims.

We Do the Work While You Recover From Bike Crash Injuries

When you or a relative are suffering from severe or catastrophic injuries, the last thing you want is to deal with an insurance company. You don’t need the stress of paperwork, answering questions, or handing over evidence. Let us do that. Our bicycle accident lawyers deal with insurers all the time, and we know how to get through this process efficiently while protecting your rights and privacy.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

You or a loved one may be dealing with:

Insurance companies often find something to dispute during claims, such as the extent of your injuries. We’re prepared for that. We know how to prove your injuries through your medical records, pictures, videos, and expert testimony. It’s one of the reasons we’re good at winning fair compensation for our bike accident clients.
