There are numerous reasons why people use a bike or bicycle as their primary mode of transportation in day-to-day life. It’s cheap and environmentally friendly as compared to a car. More importantly, two-wheelers like motorcycles, scooters, and bikes are preferred in crowded cities and congested roads. They are quick to cut through the traffic and travel within the city. With everyone prioritizing health, people have taken up cycling as an exercise.

However, riding a two-wheeler doesn’t free us from accidents. Bike riders are vulnerable to other vehicles and by potholes, spilled liquid, and construction materials on the road. Open manholes, sewer grates can also cause accidents. Bike riders must be alert of the road conditions as they can skid on the road. In a city like Long Island, bicycle accidents are not new. Let’s have a look at a few basics about bicycle accidents.

FAQs

How severe can a Bicycle accident be?

Due to vehicle design, two-wheeler drivers are directly exposed to impact as compared to four-wheeler drivers. A slight collision to the bike can make it unstable and have a major impact on the rider and the pillion. Often large vehicles like trucks or a trailer force two-wheelers off the road leading to a crash.

A variety of injuries can happen in a bike accident, like but not limited to head injury despite wearing a helmet, spinal cord injury, and bone fracture. Fatal accidents can cause deaths too. A speeding bike or another speeding vehicle can throw the rider off the bike. While lying exposed on the road leads to the possibility of an immediate speeding car running over you and causing multiple injuries or even death.

What are the steps to be taken after an accident?

In an accident, the initial steps are vital. If there are major injuries to anyone, call the paramedics immediately. Report the accident to the police. The report will be needed for insurance and a lawsuit if filed.

Collect the evidence possible. Take contact details of involved individuals and witnesses, take note of vehicle numbers and insurance company details. It also benefits to take photographs of the vehicles involved. It might be stressful to do everything immediately after the accident; however, these steps can help your legal journey.

Is Compensation provided for Bicycle accidents in Long Island?

New York State is a no-fault car insurance state wherein the injured needs to connect with their car insurance company for compensation. Even as a passenger in the car, you can get compensation. As a passenger in the car, the vehicle owner’s insurance company is liable to pay the compensation.

However, if the insurance company is not compensating or if you are not content with the compensation, then a personal injury lawsuit can be filed. Our bicycle accident lawyer in Long Island can help you file the lawsuit and get the deserved compensation.

What kind of costs can I recover from Compensation?

There are a host of damages that can be covered under-compensation. Below are a few important bills listed.

  • Medical Bills — Will compensate all the medical expenses due to injury, including consultation, ambulance, medicines, and surgery. Any future cost like medicines or physiotherapy associated with treating the injury will also be compensated. 
  • Lost Wages – Victims can be out of work for a long time to heal themselves. All the accident-related lost wages can be recovered in the damages. 
  • Lost of earning capacity – A few injuries can leave the victim with full or partial disability. This, in turn, affects their earning capabilities. In such circumstances, victims are entitled to damages for loss of earning capacity. 

Apart from the economic damages, non-economic damages can also be recovered. Apart from physical injuries, a victim also goes through pain and suffering because of the accident. You can also get damages for the loss of enjoyment. It’s the loss of inability to do activities that brings joy to life.

Я был пассажиром UBER, и машину сзади сбил грузовой фургон. Я позвонил по номеру 1-800-HURT-511, так как друг уже имел с ними дело, и я был рад, что я это сделал. Мой адвокат был предельно профессиональным и агрессивным при необходимости . Он был прозрачен с самого начала и не усложнял дела без надобности.
