Bicycle Accident Lawyer in NYC

According to statistics compiled by the radio station WNYC, 269 traffic fatalities in New York City in 2014 included 20 bicycle deaths. A review of the NYC DOT fatality database shows that this is a fairly consistent annual bicycle fatality statistic. A 10-year study encompassing 1996-2005 showed a total of 225 bicycle deaths in the city.

The chances of dying while riding a bicycle in the city, therefore, don’t seem to change over time, despite variables including a greater emphasis on safety (a plus) and the proliferation of Citi Bikes (a potential risk factor, although there have been no Citi Bike fatalities so far).

Your Losses

If your loved one was one of this year’s likely 20 bicycle fatality cases, you are likely focused on very different issues than statistics about bike accidents. You may want to know why and how the accident happened and who was responsible. You may have experienced emotional trauma of your own if you witnessed the bicycle accident or if you learned that your loved one suffered pain and suffering for a period of time leading up to death.

You may also be keenly aware of your family’s financial losses triggered by the deceased person’s death. Perhaps he or she was a breadwinner, and you are now struggling to find a way to live without his or her income. You have likely had or will have funeral expenses and perhaps final medical bills.

What To Do?

An accident investigation can help determine and document the cause of the fatal bicycle accident, answering the difficult questions of “Why?” and “How?” A wrongful death claim can help your family recover compensation for financial losses as well as a loss of companionship. If the bicycle accident was a hit-and-run accident, pursuing compensation may require creative searching for sources. The deceased person’s auto accident policy is one example of a possible source.
