Recovering Financial Compensation After a New York Bicycle Accident Injury

Cycling is a staple of New York City, and cities everywhere, for that matter. Cycling is cost-effective, great exercise, and can even be good fun. However, riding a bicycle can also be very dangerous. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. Please read on to learn more:

What are the most common types of bicycle accidents?

  • Rear-end accidents: These are perhaps the most common form of bicycle accident; they will generally occur when a motorist is tailing a bicyclist too closely either at stop signs or when cyclists move left to get around parked cars on the shoulder. Remember, motorists must always be three car lengths back from the vehicle in front, and if you are hit from behind, you will most likely be seriously injured as a result.
  • Dooring accidents: These happen more often than you think. A dooring accident is when a motorist parked on the road’s shoulder opens his or her car door into a cyclist who happens to be passing by at that moment. Motorists are responsible for always checking both ways before opening their doors.
  • Side-sweeping accidents: Side-sweeping accidents will occur when a cyclist is driving in the road because there is no shoulder. Sometimes, impatient motorists will try and pass cyclists, despite the fact that there is insufficient room to do so. When this happens, cyclists are often injured as a result.

Am I entitled to compensation after an accident?

If you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should be able to successfully sue that party. However, this is not always easy, which is why it is so important you speak with a knowledgeable attorney as soon as you can. Our firm has years of experience in fighting for our clients’ rights.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York?

The statute of limitations in New York is three years, which means you have three years from the day of the incident to file a claim against a negligent party. The sooner you file, the better. If you wait too long, you will be barred from suing. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started.
