New York City Bike Collision and Bike Accident Attorneys

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

One of the most common modes of alternative transportation in the big city is the utilization of the bicycle and other single-person vehicles, such as the Vespa or motorized scooter. The list of benefits of these modes of transportation goes on and on: not only are they less expensive than a car, but they can be used to move straight through traffic, are easier to park, and bicycles offer the added benefit of physical wellbeing while commuting.

They are not without some caveats, however. Just like with any vehicle moving through the congested streets of New York City, accidents are very likely, and bike riders don't enjoy the same armored protection as those in a passenger vehicle. Injuries in biker riders tend to be more severe for this reason, which is why we provide careful attention when it comes to legal matters regarding the compensation riders deserve for their wrongful injury.

If you've been injured in a bike accident through no fault of your own, contact our firm today at (866) 352-6944. We have the experience you need on your side. 

Common Causes of Bike Accidents

According to the most recent statistical data available from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on bicycle accidents, there were over 460,000 accidents involving bicycles in the year of 2015, and more than 1,000 men, women, and children were killed in those accidents. The most likely demographics to be killed include adults in the age range of 50-59, and children in the brackets of 5-14 and 15-19 see the most non-fatal injuries.

While many factors contribute to the safety concern, most bicycle accidents are caused by:

  • Drunk or impaired driving
  • Failing to see bike riders on the road
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Opening of a car door before checking for cyclists
  • Unpredictable obstacles in congested roadways

The most debilitating accidents occur with other motor vehicles, and in New York, taxi-cabs make account for a large portion of these types of accidents, but they can also occur with other bike riders and even pedestrians. Those who bike for a living, such as bike messengers or delivery men and women are at higher risk as well.

Put Flanzig & Flanzig on Your Side

Bike riders suffer some of the most life-changing injuries in their accident, including loss of limb, road rash disfiguration, and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. Those suffering them at the hands of someone else's negligence deserve compensation for the suffering they have endured and will endure throughout their life.
