Lever & Ecker, PLLC October 4, 2023 Personal injury

New York offers various types of transportation for travel in and around the state, including multiple means of public transportation, which have been around for many decades. However, a new type of easily accessible transportation, electric bicycles (E-bikes), have become enormously popular in just the past few years. Electric bikes are increasing in popularity every day as more and more people discover their many benefits.

While New York has some rules and restrictions regarding e-bikes, those rules are designed to keep riders and pedestrians safe. We invite you to find out more information about new e-bike laws and safety challenges here on our blog.

If you are following the rules and someone else causes an accident involving an e-bicycle (whether you were the e-bicycle rider or injured by one), contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. They can help you recover the losses you suffer as a result of the accident
