We Take on All Types of Brooklyn Bike Accidents

We Find Evidence of Negligence

To win compensation after a bicycle accident in Brooklyn, you have to prove someone else was careless or reckless. We refer to this as negligence, and it has four elements:

  1. The other person owed you a duty of care
  2. That person breached their duty of care
  3. Their actions caused an accident
  4. You suffered injuries

Every driver has a duty of ordinary care. They have to obey New York traffic laws and drive carefully to avoid accidents.

Common Types of Evidence

During our in-depth investigation of the crash, we gather all types of evidence, such as:

  • Police reports
  • Photos
  • Video footage
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Medical records
  • Expert medical opinions
  • Accident reconstruction expert’s findings

We use this evidence to prove the driver violated a traffic law or was, in some other way, careless or reckless behind the wheel.

We Tackle Cases Involving Serious & Catastrophic Injuries

We know you’re dealing with a lot right now. You or a loved one may be in treatment and recovery from:

We want to reduce your stress during the claim process. That way, you can focus on your recovery. Let us handle the insurance company, prove your case, and file a lawsuit if it’s in your best interests.

Were You Wearing a Helmet?

New York law doesn’t require adults to wear helmets while riding a bike. Failing to wear a helmet can lead to more severe injuries in a crash, though. That’s why the at-fault driver might argue you were negligent for not wearing one.

You can still recover compensation even if you weren’t wearing a helmet. Don’t let a negligent driver and insurance company tell you otherwise. If they’re saying you were negligent, call us for help today.
