New York Attorneys for Bicycle Transportation Accidents

Like motorcycles, bicycles offer little to no protection to riders, which means that bicycle transportation accidents can often result in serious or even catastrophic injuries. The team of attorneys at Leav & Steinberg LLP has extensive experience handling a variety of transportation-related accidents, including bike accidents. We'll fight to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.

Bicycle Accidents

No two bicycle accidents are the same, and in a city as busy and big as New York, there are countless scenarios in which bicyclists may be injured while riding. "Dooring" is a common bike accident, in which a person in a parked car opens a car door into the path of a passing cyclist. Accidents can also be caused by neglected road hazards such as potholes or broken cement. And, of course, motor vehicles are also often to blame for bicycle accidents, usually when they fail to yield to cyclists who have the right of way.

What to Do After You've Been in a Bicycle Accident

Not unlike in car accident cases, there are several important steps that you should take immediately after being involved in a bicycle accident. First, contact emergency personnel as soon as possible so that the police can file a report and any injuries can be treated at the hospital. You will also want to document as many details as you can about the accident, which includes taking photos of the scene, getting the contact information of any witnesses, and gathering copies of all police documents and medical records related to your injuries. Finally, contact our team of lawyers as soon as possible so that we can begin investigating and assessing your case.

While bicyclists in New York City are subject to the same laws and entitled to the same rights as drivers, they are technically considered pedestrians under New York's no-fault laws. This means that injuries sustained will fall under insurance companies' no-fault coverage. If you have a solid case, our attorneys can fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

I had a great experience with this law firm for my personal injury case. I was referred to them by another attorney who did not handle the type of case I had and from the beginning I felt I was in good hands by Edward Averbach, Esq., Edward Steinberg, Esq. and the paralegals that worked my case.
