Injured While Riding A Citi Bike In New York City? You May Be Eligible For Financial Compensation, We Can Help.
The Citi Bike bike-sharing program in New York City has been a great success, according to many observers. Thousands of riders have rented bicycles by the hour to get around town for recreation or practical purposes. Run by Citibank in cooperation with the city, this program seems to offer advantages: exercise, entertainment, and a transportation alternative.
Program supporters like to point out that there have been no fatal accidents so far. This is a record to be thankful for. However, there have been some accidents causing injuries. Some of these accidents may occur for the same reasons any bicycle accidents happen: speeding cars, lack of bicycle lanes, carelessness, and other factors.
Inexperienced bicyclists may also be a contributing factor. Tourists and foreign visitors unfamiliar with the city’s traffic patterns may be at risk. In particular, we have observed and heard of cases involving European tourists who are, in fact, experienced bicyclists — but not in New York City. They may not be used to the density of motor vehicle traffic, poor road conditions in certain areas, and other factors unique to New York City.
