Bicycle Accident Lawyers New York City, NY

NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Represent Bike Accident Victims in All Five New York Boroughs

More and more people are choosing to get around by bicycle, prompting most cities to devote increased resources to constructing bike lanes. But with the increase in ridership comes an increase in bicycle accidents. Because cyclists do not have the protection offered by motor vehicles, they are at a significant disadvantage when hit by a car, truck, or van. As a result, injuries to bicyclists in bike accidents are often severe and life threatening.

If you were involved in a bicycle accident with a motor vehicle in NYC, it is important to learn about your rights and legal options. You may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, lost income, the costs of rehab, and pain and suffering. At Proner & Proner in New York City, lead attorney Mitchell Proner not only knows that clients are suffering, he knows how to fight to obtain maximum compensation for them. Call the firm now or fill out our online contact form to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation about your New York City bicycle accident case.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Manhattan, NY

Attorney Mitchell Proner at Proner & Proner Law Firm handles all types of bicycle accidents, including those caused by:

  • Cars turning into the paths of bicycles.
  • Drivers opening a vehicle door into the path of a bike, known as dooring.
  • Vehicles backing up without seeing a bicycle or without bothering to check the blind spot.
  • Cars running stop signs or lights.
  • Drivers moving in the bike lane.
  • Drivers who double-park.

Bicycle riders injured by motor vehicles suffer catastrophic injuries that include traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other serious head injuries, broken bones, lacerations, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis. In the worst cases, a New York City bicycle accident can result in death.

In a New York City bike accident that does not cause the death of the bicyclist, the victim may not ever fully recover — meaning that they cannot return to work as a bike messenger or resume their normal activities. Proner & Proner is a New York City personal injury law firm that seeks maximum compensation for riders injured because of the negligent acts of drivers of cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles.

Negligent Drivers and More Are a Major Factor in New York Bicycle Accidents

Negligent drivers include those distracted by cell phones, driving drunk, speeding, committing other traffic violations, and failing to check their surroundings. However, some accidents may be the result of a third party’s negligence. Missing or obscured street signs, severely damaged road surfaces, and even unleashed dogs can contribute to bike accidents. When that happens, the bicycle accident might be the responsibility of a third party, not another driver. The experienced bike accident attorneys at Proner & Proner in NYC will investigate to determine exactly how your accident occurred.
