New York City Bicycle Accidents FAQs
Who can be considered liable in a bicycle accident?
- Depending on the specific circumstance of your case, you may be able to file suit against multiple parties, including but not limited to
- Negligent drivers of automobiles, buses, or trucks
- Negligent manufacturers or retailers of bicycles, bicycle parts, bicycle accessories and/or vehicles
- The City, County, or State who maintains the roadways
- Owners of the residential or commercial property who maintain the property where the accident occurred
What if I was partly at fault for the accident?
In New York State, you are allowed to file a claim against others for your injuries, even if you were partly at fault for the accident which resulted in the injury. At the time of trial, while the jury may find that you were comparatively negligent, it may also find the other parties responsible for your accident.
Is there any way that I can have my medical expenses covered?
If your injury was caused by an accident which involved an automobile, then that vehicle’s no-fault coverage may be liable for your lost wages and all “reasonable and necessary medical expenses” related to the accident.
What type of damages can I recover for in a bicycle accident?
You can recover your past and future medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering, and any accident related expenses (including out of pocket expenses for transportation, medications, medical coverage, modalities or equipment, and even to replace your damaged bicycle).
