Bike Accidents

In our very mobile society, we often forget that cyclists are subject to the same traffic laws and have the same rights as other motorists and pedestrians. Statistics are alarming when it comes to how many people are injured in bicycle accidents in New York each year. Many times, cyclists are injured because people driving automobiles simply aren't being cautious, or they assume that it's the cyclist’s responsibility to stay out of their way. If you're a cyclist who has been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligent action, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and even damage to your bicycle.

There are many different types of accidents that can result in serious injuries to cyclists, including:

  • Being broadsided in an intersection
  • Being sideswiped by a passing car
  • Being hit from behind by a car that doesn't stop in time
  • Hitting a car that's turned into your path
  • Hitting a car door that's been opened in your path
  • Being hit by another bicycle

Oftentimes, compensation for injuries sustained in bike accidents can vary dramatically, depending on circumstances and the experience of your bike accident attorney. At Ernest Holzberg & Associates, we understand the laws that pertain to cycling in the state of New York, and we can provide you with competent representation in your case and get you the results you deserve. Richard Holzberg, attorney and partner at Ernest Holzberg & Associates, is an avid cyclist himself, and he fully sympathizes with the challenges they face while trying to ride safely in the New York City area.
