HELPING NYC BICYCLISTS FOR OVER 60 YEARS

Bicycles are a part of New York City’s tradition, so even though the streets now lack bike messengers, as their letters are now sent by e-mail, and their packages by Fedex, the City is becoming more hospitable to bicyclists by providing bike lanes in many areas.  Children love to ride bikes, and places to ride them safely are hard to find in a bustling metropolis, so children are often injured while riding their bikes.  For over 60 years New Yorkers have turned to Bicycle Accident Attorney NYC – Wittenstein & Wittenstein – where they have received compassionate representation when they are injured.

Confirming insurance coverage for bicycle accidents requires some investigation.  Medical bills, lost earnings and out-of-pocket expenses are payable by the offending vehicle, so this insurance company must be either provided by the driver or researched from the police report.  Bicycle accidents should always be immediately reported to the police because if the car that hit you is uninsured, the claim can only go forward if there has been a report filed within 24 hours.  That’s why it’s a good idea to call a bicycle accident attorney in NYC immediately after an accident.

At Bicycle Accident Attorney NYC, we would like you to stay as safe as possible.  Check out some bicycle safety tips for kids that we’ve found.  You should also take a look at New York City’s laws and regulation for bicycle riders.  Please bike safely.

A notice of claim must be filed with the City of New York within 90 days if your accident involved a city vehicle or was caused by a defect that the city is responsible for.  The statute of limitations against the City of New York is also shorter than for other parties.

EXAMPLES OF DEFECTS:

  • Potholes on roads
  • Traffic signals broken or not functioning properly
  • Telephone poles that are poorly place
  • Trees obstructed the roadway
  • Trees or foliage that is blocking signs
  • Improperly designed bike lanes
  • Median barriers not properly designed
  • Lane width improper
  • Ditches and open holes
  • Violations at construction sites
