Bicycle Accidents

Have You Been Injured In A Bicycle Accident?

Many of our clients are serious and competitive cyclists who enjoy the beautiful vistas and challenging roadways in and around the George Washington Bridge and great NYC/NJ metropolitan area. This area provides breathtaking and pristine views of the bridge and the Hudson River, and includes the Palisades Interstate Park area, Henry Hudson Drive, and Route 9W, and the Palisades Parkway.  These areas are a big draw for cyclists. 

But these areas are fraught with danger for even the most experienced cyclists, as the area is densely populated and cars, trucks, and buses dominate the roadways. It doesn't help that in this area of New Jersey and New York, car and truck drivers remain very aggressive and are always in a rush to get to where they are going.  The intersection of several highways at this location, like the NJ Turnpike/I-95, Route 4, Route 9W, Route 46, and the ingress and egress of the George Washington Bridge traffic, combines to create a dangerous situation of motor vehicle versus bike. 

Because of the densely populated area and the number of vehicles on the roadways, cyclists are particularly at risk for being hit by vehicles. And given the very little amount of protection cyclists can wear, the possibility of serious injury is high in the event of an accident.

For example, 2019 was a very deadly year for cyclists in New York City:

  • About 29 cyclists died while riding bikes in New York City in 2019.
  • 25 cyclists were killed by collisions with large trucks, buses, SUVs or vans.
  • Of those, 18 bicycle riders were killed in Brooklyn.

We will aggressively fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.  You may be entitled to a damages recovery that covers your expenses with additional compensation for past and future pain and suffering as a result of your injury. You need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process.

Yes you can ! We do not get paid unless you get paid.  We offer free consultations regarding personal injury to discuss your case and work on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not have to pay an attorney unless we recover money for you.  There are no legal bills.
