There are many reasons you or a loved one might choose to ride a bike over other forms of transportation. You may be making an environmentally conscientious choice, you might choose two wheels over four due to economic circumstances; you may just want to get some exercise. Whatever your reason, there are unfortunately still many motorists who don’t provide cyclists with the space they need, even when a bike lane is present or a crosswalk is in use.
Any negligence conducted by a motor vehicle operator that leads to a bike accident requires accident victims to utilize personal injury lawyers in order to successfully be compensated for their subsequent damages. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle-car crash due to someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden of your recovery.

Bicyclists are accustomed to sharing the road with much larger motor vehicles, which subsequently makes a bicycle rider more alert to the conditions of the road and traffic laws at all times. The lack of protections possessed by bicyclists when compared to motorists mean that a bicycle-car accident can be much more costly than a crash between two cars.
If you’ve been injured in a bike accident due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver or any other party, you could be entitled to a settlement with the negligent party’s insurance company. Your Long Island bicycle accident attorney will conduct a thorough investigation into what caused your crash and who was responsible for it, including deciphering the ultimate cause of the bicycle injury. Some of the more common causes of these often devastating personal injury claims include the following:
Upon contacting a Long Island bicycle accident lawyer from our law firm, you and your attorney will review all the details of your personal injury case to determine who is at fault.
If you are injured by a driver in an accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation from that driver’s insurance company. In order to receive compensation for your personal injury claim, you must prove that the driver’s negligence caused your bicycle accident.
New York follows laws of comparative negligence. This means that your contribution to causing the crash will be translated into a percentage of fault, and that your compensation amount will then be reduced by that same percentage. It’s important to have a legal representative who will fight for your right to the comprehensive compensation that will hold a negligent driver or third party accountable.
The statute of limitations on personal injury cases in New York is three years from the date of the accident. It’s important not to wait too long before filing a claim, as lawsuits brought after the statute has expired will not be heard.
If another driver’s carelessness caused your bike accident, you shouldn’t bear the financial burden of your recovery. Siler & Ingber, LLP will help you hold the negligent driver accountable and get you all of the financial compensation that you’re owed.
