Bicycle Accidents in New York
More than 4,300 bicyclists were determined to have suffered a range of injuries from minor to fatal due to their involvement in the thousands of New York bicycle accidents that took place back in 2018. The utter vulnerability of cyclists dramatically increases the chances that a victim will suffer catastrophic injuries in a collision with a motor vehicle. When a severely reckless or otherwise absentminded driver is the cause of suffering to you or a loved one, it becomes immediately important to fully comprehend that you have substantial rights protected by law.
In many cases, devastating bicycle accidents are triggered by no fault of the victims but by other people who engage in actions such as distracted or intoxicated driving. Whether a person or other entity is responsible for your suffering, it is important to know that there is no reason you should be burdened by the high costs associated with a sudden accident. Issues such as the loss of wages, the price of hospitalization or funeral costs, and much more all quickly add up, and there is absolutely no substitute for vigilant and compassionate representation that will begin the fight for the compensation you deserve as soon as possible.
