Queens Bike Accident Lawyer

One of the many perks of living in Queens is being able to easily get around on a bicycle. Riding a bike is better for your health, better for the environment, and in most cases, better for your bank account. However, it is not always the safest means of transportation.

It is important to be aware of your surroundings when riding a bike around Queens. Your chances of being involved in a bike accident are greater in a high-traffic area like Queens than they might be in a more rural area.

While you may exercise caution on the road, there is no guarantee that others will do the same. There is a possibility that you may one day be struck by a negligent driver while riding your bike in Queens.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Queens bike accident, you should review your case for free with a Queens bike accident attorney at Shulman & Hill. If we find that you qualify to file a bike accident lawsuit, our personal injury lawyers in Queens can provide strong legal counsel and offer aggressive representation.

Queens Bike Accidents: Important Information

In June 2021, 117 cyclists were injured in Queens bike accidents. Common causes of Queens bike accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Distracted driving: Now that so many people have smartphones, research shows that the rate of accidents resulting from distracted driving has been on the rise in the last few years.
  • Speeding
  • Failure to respect designated bike lanes: Driving in designated bike lanes or forcing cyclists out of the bike lanes can result in an accident.
  • Driver intoxication
  • Sleep-deprivation. Some researchers believe that the risks of driving without adequate sleep are essentially the same as the risks of driving while drunk.
  • Vehicle defects
  • Hazardous road conditions

Queens Bike Accidents: Injuries and Losses

Being involved in any type of vehicular accident can be devastating. However, if you are on a bike when you are involved in an accident, your chances of being seriously injured are typically greater than they would be if you were in a car, truck, or similar vehicle.

Drivers and occupants of cars and trucks have a certain degree of protection during collisions thanks to the steel frames protecting their bodies. Unfortunately, this is not an advantage you have when you are on a bike. Your increased vulnerability equates to an increased risk of sustaining major injuries.

The injuries you may sustain in a Queens bike accident can often result in a trip to the hospital. They might also require long-term medical treatment. Paying the bills for such treatment can be challenging. Your financial troubles may be even greater if severe injuries prevent you from working. If you cannot work, your options for earning an income may be limited and your household bills can quickly pile up.

Other losses and struggles that stem from a Queens bike accident are not always financial in nature. However, you may still be entitled to compensation for these struggles. Examples include ongoing physical pain and suffering.

When you are injured in a Queens bike accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation accordingly. Our personal injury lawyers in Queens can help improve your chances of reaching a fair settlement or a favorable jury verdict.

How Our Queens Bike Accident Law Firm Can Help You

Hiring a qualified Queens bike accident lawyer can be beneficial to your case in many ways. The following are just some examples of how our personal injury experts can help you:

Conducting an Investigation

The path to compensation after a Queens bike accident typically involves filing a lawsuit against the negligent party (typically the at-fault driver). Identifying the negligent party often requires conducting an investigation. Our team of attorneys can leverage our vast resources to assess your case and determine who may be responsible for compensating you.

If you cannot reach a fair settlement with the insurance company, our Queens bike accident attorneys will go to trial and fight for a favorable jury verdict.

Collecting Evidence

When you file a bike accident lawsuit, you need to show that why you are entitled to compensation for your relevant losses. This often requires providing evidence, such as medical bills, statements from doctors, accident reports, and more. We can help gather this evidence while you focus on your recovery.

Negotiating

This is perhaps the most important reason to hire a Queens bike accident attorney when filing a lawsuit. Some insurance companies strive to limit the amount they have to pay claimants or avoid paying them altogether. If you work with an insurer directly, they may convince you to accept a subpar offer.

You should not accept a settlement offer before consulting a qualified personal injury attorney. Our attorneys can negotiate aggressively on your behalf to help you pursue a settlement offer that accounts for your full range of losses.

If you cannot reach a fair settlement with the insurance company, our Queens bike accident attorneys will take your case to trial to pursue a favorable jury verdict on your behalf.
