The Causes Of Bicycle accidents in Brooklyn, NY

Citizens use bicycles as a mode of transport for various reasons – to go to work, school, buy groceries, travel short distances, deliver packages or even exercise.
Bicyclists are used to sharing the road with much larger motor vehicles which makes them more alert to the various conditions of the road and traffic laws at all times. Bicyclists usually possess less protection than motor vehicles, and a bicycle-car accident can be costly for all the parties at fault.
Multiple reasons can cause bicycle accidents in cities. Let’s take a look at these reasons:

  • Over speeding
  • Drunk Driving
  • Unsafe Road Conditions
  • Distracted Driving
  • When Drivers Do Not See The Cyclists
  • Diving exceptionally closely into a bicyclist
  • Congestion In The Traffic
  • Riding opposite the traffic
  • Taking hazardous or unlawful turns when driving at night
  • Inadequate bicycle-specific infrastructure (physical barriers, protected bike lanes, parking, etc.)
  • Inexperienced riders
  • Riding bikes with safety equipment and helmet

Any reckless or negligent actions can result in bicycle accidents. All parties involved can suffer severe consequences when a bike collides with automobiles. You can call our expert Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyers as soon as possible for assistance. We are here to assist you whenever you require us.

The Common Injuries From A Bicycle Accident

Even if bicyclists wear protective gear and abide by traffic safety laws, Brooklyn bicycle accidents can still happen to result in serious injuries. Bicyclists have minimal safety protection compared to someone inside motor vehicles.

During bicycle collisions, cyclists often experience direct impact with the pavement or another vehicle. Most commonly seen injuries from Brooklyn bicycle accidents involve:

  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Dislocated Joints
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Severe cuts, wounds, and road rash

Bicycle Accident Claim Worth

If you or your loved one has been hurt in a bicycle accident and have received a settlement offer from the negligent driver’s insurance, that offer is likely only to cover any immediate bills and devastating & apparent losses.

It will not consider your intangible damages like pain, suffering & emotional distress. It also does not consider less-obvious and future financial damages.

Your Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyers will consider all the hardships imposed by your accident when determining a fair settlement amount. This can include both financial expenses and non-economic damages for your lost quality of life:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Physical and emotional therapy
  • Renovations made to your home to accommodate a new disability
  • Lost wages and reduced income-earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful Death
