Bike Accident Attorneys in New York
New York City law permits you to bike on all main and local streets whether or not there is a designated route (i.e. a bike lane).
Although biking is generally a safer and greener mode of transportation, you can still get injured due to car drivers’ negligence.
When motor vehicles collide with bicycles, it’s the bicyclists who sustain the worst injuries, and they’re usually catastrophic.
Hiring a personal injury attorney is one of the first things you should do if you or someone you know gets into an accident on their bike.
Bike Accidents By The Numbers
Significantly less people ride a bike instead of driving a car, but the bike accident statistics are still staggering. Here are just a few eye-opening numbers about bike accidents per the CDC:
- Roughly 1,000 cyclists are killed and over 130,000 are injured in crashes.
- Bike trips only account for 1% of all trips in the U.S., but cyclists account for 2% of deaths involving a motor vehicle in the country.
- Approximately 64% of cyclist deaths occur in areas where the speed limit may be higher, and 27% occur at intersections.
- Most cyclist deaths occur in urban areas.
You wouldn’t want the perpetrator of a bike accident to get away scot-free. Be sure to reach out to Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson, L.L.P. to help with your personal injury case.
