While bicyclists share the streets with buses, taxis, trucks and cars in New York City, the larger vehicles do not share in the consequences when there is a collision. It is always the person on the bike who is injured. Usually those injuries are serious.
At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience representing bicyclists and pedestrians who are injured in traffic accidents in New York City. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Protecting The Rights Of Bikers
The most common accidents involving bikes occur when the person in the vehicle does not yield the right of way to the bicyclist. Typical accidents include:
- Vehicles making a left turn in front of a bike
- Vehicles clipping a bike while passing
- Vehicles failing to yield to a bike at a stoplight
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a bike accident, we strongly encourage you to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You have rights that need to be protected. Our lawyers can answer your questions about no-fault insurance while representing you in a personal injury case against the at-fault driver.
Here is an example of the results our cycling injury law firm has obtained for our clients:
