Bicycle And Citi Bike Personal Injuries
Cyclists ride for recreation, exercise and transportation purposes. Some bicyclists in New York City also bike to make deliveries for courier services and other businesses. Even cyclists who ride safely, obey traffic laws and use designated paths or lanes can fall victim to obstacles in the road. They may encounter reckless motorists who fail to share the road properly. Injuries from such accidents are often severe or fatal, resulting in financial troubles for an individual or an entire family.
Our team of attorneys will fight for your right to full compensation after a bicycle accident. We are here to hold the responsible party accountable, whether your accident or your child’s bicycle wreck was caused by a negligent motorist, road defect or bicycle defect.
About Citi Bike Accidents
Citi Bike, a large bike-share program in New York City, has 25,000 bikes managed through 1,500 stations across the New York City metro area, including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Jersey City and Hoboken. Our lawyers have helped numerous riders who had been injured in Citi Bike accidents to recover compensation through all appropriate sources.
In most cases, the legal aspects of a Citi Bike accident are similar to those of any bicycle accident. If you collided with a car, truck, motorcycle or bus while riding a Citi Bike – perhaps in a bike lane – the driver of that vehicle will likely be responsible to compensate you for your injuries. If the city of New York was negligent, perhaps through poor signage, or if the Citi Bike had a defect, you may have additional avenues through which to pursue compensation. If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, your compensation may come from your auto insurance or that of a family member whom you live with.
Our years of experience as personal injury lawyers in New York City can be an asset, as we exhaust all leads to discover sources of compensation to pay for your medical expenses, therapy, lost wage replacement, and pain and suffering.
