Following a bicycle accident, it’s important to act quickly to safeguard your legal rights. To assist in creating the strongest case possible, follow these steps:
Make sure you are safe from harm.
In Queens, traffic is heavy. Make sure you are not in the path of oncoming traffic if you have been hurt in a bicycle accident. Move off the sidewalk and to the side of the road as quickly as you can.
Make a police call and get medical attention for your wounds.
Bicycle accidents can cause severe injuries and happen very rapidly. Never presume that someone else is requesting assistance after an accident. If you can, get in touch with the police.
Take pictures of your injuries and the accident location.
A bicycle accident case may benefit from having photos of the accident location. Take as many images of the accident scene as you can, paying particular attention to any damaged helmets, bikes, or licence plates. Take pictures of any more important details, such as road signs or skid marks. Prior to receiving medical attention, take pictures of your injuries.
Gather contact details.
Obtain the driver’s name, address, phone number, and insurance information. Obtain the names and contact details of any witnesses as well.
Keep track of your wounds.
Journal every day about your wounds and any discomfort they produce. It can help your case for compensation if you take the time to record your injuries.
Do not post about the accident on social media.
Keep your accident, injuries, and rehabilitation off of social media. The individual who caused your injuries might use those posts against you in some way.

Cycling accident victims who sustain injuries as a result of negligent driving frequently have legal recourse. They can file a lawsuit against the driver for negligence or for failing to drive reasonably. According to New York law, all motorists are responsible for driving responsibly for other road users. Those who don’t and cause accidents that harm others may be held criminally accountable.
A cyclist who sustains an injury may be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages if their negligence claim is successful. This implies that the defendant(s) may be accountable for both quantitative losses, such lost wages and medical expenses, and less tangible ones, like pain and suffering.
A careless driver can assert the defence that you shouldn’t be entitled to damages since your own negligence contributed to the collision. However, if you were partially at fault, you can still seek damages under New York’s comparative negligence law; your percentage of blame will just reduce your compensation.
In addition to working with you to identify any applicable statutes of limitations so that you can submit your claim before the applicable deadline, an experienced Queens bicycle accident attorney can assist you in deciding how to approach this potential issue.
Although cycling accidents frequently result in severe injuries, wearing a helmet can considerably lower the risk of death. When you collide with a large truck or a piece of concrete, you don’t have very much to defend you. You shouldn’t be held responsible for an accident resulting from someone else’s negligence.
