Important Information Regarding Bicycle Accidents in NYC

There are few accidents more damaging than bicycle accidents, and often, cyclists are not to blame for causing them. We have helped countless bicycle accident victims over the years, and we are prepared to help you as well. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx personal injury attorney to learn more about bicycle accidents in New York City and how we can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one.

Bicycle Accidents in the Bronx & Their Primary Causes

Bicycle accidents can happen for various reasons. Often, they are the result of negligence, either on the part of bicyclists or other motorists. Both are responsible for obeying the rules and regulations of the road, and when they fail to do so, serious accidents and injuries can ensue. Some of the most common types of driver negligence that lead to cyclists sustaining serious injuries are as follows:

  • Texting while driving
  • Tailing cyclists too closely
  • Driving onto the shoulder of the road or in bike lanes
  • Trying to overtake cyclists
  • Opening car doors before looking
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Speeding

After a Bicycle Accident

If you were injured in a bicycle accident because another driver was doing any of the aforementioned and struck you, you may have a valid personal injury claim, through which we can fight for the compensation to which you are entitled. If you can, after a bicycle accident, once you call 911 and emergency services are dispatched to the scene, you should try and document the accident to the best of your ability. This can include taking pictures of the accident or your injuries, asking witnesses for their contact information, keeping copies of your medical documentation, and more. Ensure you speak with a competent Bronx personal injury attorney as well.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for most bicycle accident injury claims in New York City is three years. This gives those who’ve been harmed in bicycle accidents three years from the date their accident happened to take legal action against the liable party. Waiting any longer than three years will most likely result in you losing your right to sue. We are here to help you at once.
