Bicycle Accident Lawyer Queens

Biking is a popular way to get around New York City. The city’s network of bike paths and protected infrastructure provides an appealing alternative to congested roadways. Every year, NYC attracts an increasing number of commuters, delivery workers, and recreational cyclists who see biking as a convenient and enjoyable mode of transportation in a hectic environment.

Unfortunately, Queens has several high-risk intersections and roads that see major accidents every year. Namely, intersections like Queens Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue, as well as Woodward Avenue and Willough Avenue in Ridgewood, are especially dangerous.

Tragically, cyclist accidents and fatalities continue to be high despite local efforts to reduce risk. Cyclists on e-bikes and delivery workers are known to face the greatest risks. If you are dealing with injuries and financial challenges in the aftermath of a bicycle accident, we can help you.

The Law Offices of Eric Richman specializes in representing cyclists who have been injured on New York City roads. We have spent over twenty years ensuring our clients are advised on their next best steps and get the justice they deserve.

This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • Can I File a Lawsuit If the Accident Was Partially My Fault?

    In personal injury cases in New York, comparative negligence applies, which means you can seek damages even if you are partially to blame for your accident. However, the percentage of fault determined by the court may reduce the amount of compensation you are entitled to.

  • What Should I Bring to My Initial Consultation?

    Bring any police reports, medical records, photos of the accident scene, contact information of involved parties, insurance information, and any relevant correspondence with insurance companies and involved parties to your free initial consultation with our law firm.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover?

    Compensation is usually determined by the extent of your injuries. Victims may be able to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and future earning potential, pain and suffering, and property damage.

    It’s important to know that it’s impossible to know your settlement amount at the start of a case. While many other law firms in the area promise large settlement amounts during sign-up, we are always upfront and honest with our clients. Call us today if you have any additional questions about compensation.

  • How Long Does a Bicycle Accident Lawsuit Typically Take?

    The duration of a personal injury case varies. Generally, the timeframe is determined by the complexity of the case, liability, and the cooperation of all involved parties. A case can range anywhere from a few months to upwards of several years.

  • How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

    Attempting to handle large challenges alone while recovering from serious injuries can be overwhelming. Our law office can take on challenges such as gathering evidence, building a strong case, and dealing with insurers and other third parties to negotiate a fair settlement. If necessary, we can also represent you in court.
