Bicycle Accident Injuries
A bicycle-involved traffic accident may have serious consequences for the bicyclist, placing him or her at risk of serious or life-threatening injury, even in the event of a low-speed collision. The disparity in size and weight between a bicycle and an average passenger car will automatically place the rider of the bicycle at a disadvantage, as will the fact that a bicyclist has virtually no protection in the event of a collision.
If you or someone you know was involved in a bicycle accident in the Long Island area, it is important to talk to an attorney about your options in seeking financial damages from the party responsible for your injuries. A Long Island injury lawyer can help you with any insurance claim you are currently dealing with and can assist you in filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver of the car or whatever other party was responsible for causing the accident in the first place.
Determining what caused your bicycle accident will be the way that a lawyer will be able to secure the financial compensation you deserve for your case. To establish liability, your attorney may work with accident reconstruction professionals, private investigators and expert witnesses. In proving that the other party actually caused the accident, your attorney can then seek the money you need.
