Looking for a New York Bicycle Accident Lawyer you can trust?  

Bicycles are a common means of transportation, recreation and exercise throughout New York.  Bicycles offer very little in terms of protection from the hazards confronting a bicyclist on the roadways of New York. This can, and often does, lead to severe and catastrophic injuries to bicyclists when an accident occurs. Unfortunately, a large percentage of persons injured in bicycle accidents are children.


Persons injured in bicycle accidents face unique legal challenges under the laws of New York which require specific knowledge and experience as it concerns the rights of bicyclists. Our New York bicycle accident lawyers have years of experience representing victims of bike accidents and their families in all 5 boroughs of New York City and beyond. Our attorneys are specialized in successfully handling catastrophic bicycle accident cases.

The majority of bicycle accident cases in New York involve contact with a motor vehicle that failed to yield the right-of-way at an intersection, or unexpectedly turned into the path of a cyclist, often making left turns in the path of an oncoming cyclist, or a motorist overtaking a bicyclist, often by misjudging the space needed to safely pass. Too frequently, motorists, including trucks and buses, cause bicycle accidents by failing to share the road, forcing cyclists off the road or into a collision.

Bicycle accidents also occur due to other factors which are often unique to the operation of a bicycle. Bicycle accidents often occur due to environmental factors such as defective roadway design or maintenance, impaired visibility and poor road and path conditions, including potholes, road debris, maintenance problems, and even dog attacks. An all-too-common scenario in New York is when a negligent motorist opens a car door directly into a cyclist’s path. Another scenario somewhat unique to New York is that of a pedestrian struck and injured by a bicycle messenger or delivery person.
