Can I File A Claim After A Bicycle Accident?

Traffic collisions are the leading cause of bicycle accident-related deaths in New York City. Although the state has taken numerous measures to protect cyclists, 94 percent of fatal bicycle accidents are caused by careless cyclists or a negligent driver. Statistically, 40 percent of all bike accidents in NYC occur in Kings County alone, followed by Manhattan (24 percent), Queens (21 percent), the Bronx (13 percent), and Staten Island (2 percent). If your bicycle accident was caused by a careless or negligent driver, you may be able to collect financial compensation with the help of our New York City personal injury attorneys. We assist people injured on private bicycles and Citi Bikes. We also represent family members in fatal bicycle accident cases.

New York’s No-Fault Insurance And Cyclists

No-fault insurance laws are designed to help car accident victims recover financial compensation for their injuries. Specifically, no-fault insurance covers any injuries incurred during an accident that was caused by the operator of a motorcycle. In New York City, no-fault insurance is primarily used by injured bicyclists. Simply put, no-fault insurance laws require a payout to the injured party regardless of the degree of fault involved in the accident. While these claims can be difficult to navigate, our team of New York City bicycle accident attorneys can increase the likelihood of a larger payout for your claim.

You must complete the following steps to file a no-fault insurance claim:

  • Provide a written notice of the incident to the insurer within 30 days of the accident.
  • Your medical provider must send a bill to the insurance company within 45 days of treatment.
  • If you want to file for future damages, the insurance company may conduct additional exams.
