Bicycle Accidents in New York
In 2018 alone, approximately 4,300 people reported that they received injuries or lost a loved one in a New York accident involving a bicyclist. Bicyclists have few protections from harm when up against a large motor vehicle. They are more prone to suffering some of the most severe injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more. It is imperative for the victim of one of these accidents to have a New York bicycle accident attorney on their side.
