Bike Rental Crashes

Bike Rental Crash in New York

While visiting New York, renting a bike from one of the many bike rental companies can be a fun and healthy way tour the city. A bike rental can expose you to much more of what the city has to offer than a bus tour. Unfortunately, visitors who ride in New York share the dangers that New York cyclists deal with on a daily basis. Whether riding in Central Park, the Seaport, the Hudson River Park, or other areas of the city, rental bike riders are exposed to the same risk of injury. These include being struck by cars, taxis and buses, injured by opening car doors (being doored), or falling due to defective road conditions, such as pot holes or defective manholes, covers, and grates.

If you are injured while utilizing a rental bike in New York, you are afforded the same rights and protection as New Yorkers. This includes your right to seek no-fault benefits (your medical bills and lost wages compensated), as well as the right to seek compensation for your injury.

Remember that while riding in New York, even on a rental bike, you are required to follow the rules of the road. By being compliant with the law, you limit your risk of being injured. Wearing a helmet, which should be provided to you by the rental company, also helps reduce the risk of injury. However, even being diligent with your cycle safety still cannot always protect you from a negligent driver or defective road condition.

If you have been injured while riding a rental bike in New York, but have left New York and returned to your home state or country, you can still prosecute your claim here in the New York Courts. We can work with you by phone, email, or snail mail, and have done so for our clients around the country and around the world.
