Crowded New York City streets, unfortunately, set the scene for many bicycle-related accidents. Even cautious bicycle riders can unexpectedly become victims of accidents caused by careless motorists who hit riders or by passengers hastily swinging open car doors into bicycle lanes knocking bikers off-balance. Pedestrians also are sometimes victims when they are hit by bicycles while rightfully crossing streets in designated crosswalks.

According to the most recent statistics offered by city officials, 1,260 cyclists were injured in crashes and 172 pedestrians were hit by cyclists in 2017. Sadly, every year there is also a small percentage of fatalities occurring with both types of accidents. At Raphaelson & Levine, we represent bicyclists, pedestrians, drivers and passengers who are harmed by any type of bicycle accident. Victims often lose wages, suffer ongoing pain, or have costly medical bills. If you’ve been a victim of a bicycle accident, our attorneys can answer any questions you have and help you to determine if you have a personal injury case.
