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

  • What Should I Do Immediately After a Bicycle Accident?

    The most important thing to do immediately after an accident is to seek medical attention and report the accident to the police. If possible, take photos of the accident scene, speak with other victims, and exchange contact information. Contact a Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyer as soon as possible.

  • How Can a Bicycle Accident Lawyer Help Me?

    Retaining a lawyer can, first and foremost, allow you to return to your recovery and personal life, knowing that an expert will help you with your case. Our law firm can help you gather evidence, investigate and develop a strong case, negotiate with insurance companies and their legal teams, and fight for you in court. Having an experienced Brooklyn bicycle accident lawyer on your side can help you get the best legal outcome.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover?

    Compensation is usually decided by the severity of a victim’s injuries. You may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.

    It’s important to know that estimating your compensation amount at the start of a case is impossible. Other law firms promise lofty settlement amounts when signing up. We are upfront and honest with our clients from day one. Call us today if you have any additional questions about compensation.

  • Is There a Time Limit to File a Claim?

    According to New York’s statute of limitations, personal injury victims must file their claims within three years of the incident. However, this time frame can vary depending on who was involved in the accident and who needs to be served. If your accident involves a government entity, you may have as few as 90 days to file a claim. Waiting too long to file could prevent you from seeking compensation later on.
