Brooklyn NY 11235

Riding a bicycle is an efficient way of going around the city. It cuts through the traffic, saving valuable time. However, a bike is equally unsafe when involved in an accident. A slight dash to the bike can cause skidding and injuring the driver.

If you or some you know have recently been wounded in a bike accident due to someone else’s carelessness, you can file for compensation. The negligent party’s insurance company will pay the settlement. Your Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyer will investigate and find who was negligent and responsible for the accident.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

Can one have severe injuries due to a bicycle accident?

The severity of the accident depends on various factors. Each accident case is unique. Proper motorcycle safety gear like helmets, knee, and elbow guards can reduce the effects of accidents.

However, due to the make and structure of two-heelers, bicycle riders have less protection than other vehicle drivers. Direct collisions can cause significant damage to the rider. A rider can either get away from the accident with minimum injuries or have substantial damage like fractures or concussions.

What are the causes of Bicycle accidents in Brooklyn?

Bicycles share the road with all types of vehicles, like cars and trucks. Collision with any vehicle can cause more damage to the bicycle driver due to lack of protection and stability. Some of the leading causes the bicycle accident claims are as follows:

  • Drunk Driving – Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents. Such drivers put everyone’s life in danger. Any drivers present on the road with them are at risk of getting in an accident.
  • Distracted Driving – A distracted driver who is distracted from the road while driving the vehicle is called a distracted driver. There are several reasons for distraction like but not limited to texting or talking on the phone, eating, talking to passengers, or using the radio. Proving the defendant was distracted is a challenge; however, our competent lawyers, with their investigation, can gather evidence and confirm a distraction.
  • Improper Road Maintenance – Bicycles with two wheels don’t enjoy the stability that four-wheelers or other vehicles have. Under unsafe driving conditions, this can lead to accidents. Irrespective of which party is accountable for road maintenance, you are eligible for the claim. Whether it’s a private road or legally under local or state government, you can get compensation. 
  • Bicycles out of sight –Not yielding the right-of-way to a bicyclist, reversing in a poorly lit parking lot are a few circumstances where accidents can happen.
  • Dooring Accident – The accident happens when a driver opens the car door without checking for the bicycle.

What kind of costs can I recover from Compensation?

After the accident, the defendant’s insurance company will pay you the compensation. It will include medical bills and lost wages due to missing work. However, to reduce their cost, they will cut corners. They will not take intangible damages like stress, pain, and suffering into consideration. 

Your Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyer will consider all the adversities you have faced due to the accident when claiming the settlement amount. Fair compensation should include economic and non-economic damages that affect the quality of life.

  • Compensation will cover the present medical cost that includes everything from a doctor’s visit to scans. If the recovery period is long, then future medical bills are also considered. 
  • Hospitalization and recovery will keep you out of work. Hence, lost wages will be an essential part of your compensation. 
  • Temporary or permanent disability leading to reduced income making capacity will be considered. 
  • Often distress, pain, and suffering are overlooked and not considered. Your bicycle accident lawyer will make sure to consider all these while filing for a claim.
  • Wrongful death claim in case of death of the victim

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

Serious team effort from the entire staff to get my work injury case resolved quickly. They built a strong case and kept me in the loop for the duration. This team also delivered on two previous occasions and did it in a very cost-effective way. A faithful customer for life thank you!

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
