Manhattan Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Serving Staten Island, the Bronx & Greater New York
Some of the most dangerous accidents involve a bicycle rider being hit by a vehicle. These are extremely severe and often catastrophic accidents that demand immediate attention of a physician. These injuries are typically very traumatic because the bike rider rarely has much protection between his or her body and the vehicle. Even when cautionary efforts, such as a bicycle helmet, are used, the damages are rarely minimal. The most common victims of these accidents are children; adults, however, also suffer from severe injuries when hit by an inattentive or drunk driver.
