Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Bicycles have become an increasingly common way to travel since they were first invented. Today, high tech bikes with lightweight materials make it possible to travel even further and faster safely and easily. At the same time, while bicycles are easy to use and very safe, accidents can happen. It is possible for anyone to get into a biking accident and get seriously hurt. When a person falls off their bike, they can suffer many different types of injuries. Even a short fall may result in a sprained ankle or broken bone. A more dangerous cycling accident can lead to serious injuries that may impair the cyclist’s ability to go back on the bike and even get to work.

Both Parties Have Responsibilities

New York is one of the few states in the nation that does not require motorcyclists and bikers to wear a helmet when biking. At the same time, almost all health officials recommend people put on a helmet when on the road. Doing so protects the cyclist from one of the most serious hazards on the road. A traumatic brain injury can have nearly unimaginable effects on a person’s life, making it almost impossible for them to resume normal activities again.

Health officials and others concerned with bicycle safety also suggest that everyone have reflective clothing that allows others to see them when on the road. This kind of clothing is particularly recommended at night and during the hours of dawn and dusk. Officials also recommend people cycling wear knee pads and elbow pads to protect their joints from injury.

Failure to do so can put the cyclist partially at fault in the aftermath of an accident. The same is true of cyclists who do not obey local traffic laws. If signs indicate a bike path, the cyclist must stick to the path as they stay on the road. They also need to obey all red lights and other signs such as a stop sign.

While these laws apply to cyclists, there are equally important laws that apply to people behind the wheel with the cyclist. Drivers who see a bicyclist when they are driving need to take special care. They must avoid injuring the cyclists while still obeying all necessary local traffic laws. They need to be aware of the cyclist’s movements and be prepared to respond well if the cyclist makes a sudden movement of any kind.

Determining Fault

If the cyclist is injured in some way, they may simple move on and decide not to pursue a case. However, in many instances, a cyclist may suffer some form of serious injury. In that case, speaking with Nassau County bicycle accident lawyers is an ideal choice. The lawyers can offer a lot of information to help them decide if they wish to pursue a case in civil courts.

In many cases, people have extensive documentation of injury. An emergency room doctor will write up a report. The police may take photographs of the accident and statements from both parties. In addition, people in the area may have seen what went on as it happened and offer their own testimony about how it all unfolded. These kinds of reports can be very useful.

A lawyer will do all this and take the case even further. They may contact the local authorities to determine road conditions at the time of the accident. They may also have the bike looked at closely by the manufacturers to see how it was used. The lawyers will also have experts sent to the scene of the accident and examine it from every possible angle. In doing so, they can offer the kind of help that establishes exactly what happened during that time and why it happened.

Several people may be at fault at the same time. The driver may have failed to signal an upcoming turn. A rider may have veered away from the safety of the bike lane and into the middle of very heavy traffic. In all cases, the goal is to find out why the accident occurred. It’s also to make sure that all parties have the appropriate legal remedy under law. By law, the cyclist is entitled to seek full or part compensation in the event of an accident. The same is true of the cyclist’s relatives and caregivers. A legal authority will examine the results and see what may constitute a fair settlement of funds for all parties involved under the laws in New York.
