New York Bicycle Accident Attorneys

People choose to ride bicycles for a variety of reasons, both personal and economical. The exercise and fresh air make bike riding an invigorating and healthy means of transportation. In fact, many individuals with short commutes tend to favor bikes over cars because of lower costs and fewer maintenance hassles. Furthermore, those with an interest in environmental concerns ride bikes to lower carbon emission and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Regardless of your reasons for getting on a bicycle, you’re sharing the road with other vehicles that are faster, heavier, and capable of causing significant injuries should a bicycle accident occur. Since your bicycle is considered a vehicle, it is crucial that you follow the rules of the road as though you were driving a car, truck, or motorcycle.

Unfortunately, even if you do your best to follow traffic laws and make yourself visible to others on the road, bicycle accidents do occur. This is especially true in urban areas with high traffic congestion and lots of nearby distractions. If a driver’s negligence caused you injury during a bicycle accident, then you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, and lost wages.

Of course, many bicyclists may not know where to turn when they are injured. They don’t have insurance on their bikes and they may not be aware of the complexities of filing an insurance claim. This is especially true for Spanish-speaking cyclists who may feel overwhelmed by an insurance company’s lingo and/or tricks.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After a Bike Accident

If you are involved in a bicycle accident, then the first thing you want to do is reach a safe location. If your accident occurs at a busy roadway or intersection, go to a safe spot away from other traffic. And, if possible, move your bike away from the highway to protect it from further damage.

Make sure that you call 911 or your local emergency number. When possible, stay at the scene of the bicycle accident. When the police arrive on the scene, they will draft an accident report, which will go to your insurance company. If you have injuries that require immediate care, make sure to get the help that you need first and foremost. Emergency medical personnel will assess your injuries and recommend whether you need to receive specialized treatment at a hospital.

If you sustained an injury because of another driver’s negligence, then contact the Ward Law Group ASAP. Our team of bicycle accident specialists will help you file a claim and explain the often confusing jargon of insurance companies.
