New Rochelle Bicycle Accident Lawyer

However, accidents involving bicycles can leave victims with severe and permanent injuries. At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we are here to help if you need a New Rochelle bicycle accident attorney. If somebody else is responsible for your bicycle accident injuries, we will work hard to hold that person accountable and secure the monetary compensation you need.

How will an attorney help a bicycle accident case?

Proving liability in a bicycle accident case can be difficult, especially when aggressive insurance carriers try to place some or all of the blame on the bicyclist. However, an experienced New Rochelle bicycle accident lawyer can:

  • Use their resources to obtain any and all evidence needed to prove liability, including available video surveillance of the incident, photographs from the accident scene, police reports, statements from eyewitnesses, the at-fault driver’s records, and more.
  • Work with trusted medical professionals to ensure their client is properly treated and evaluated.
  • Call upon economic experts to help calculate their client’s total expected financial losses.
  • Negotiate with every party involved to reach a fair settlement on behalf of their client or take the case to trial when a fair settlement cannot be reached.

Bicycle crashes often result in severe injuries

Bicyclists have very little protection from the force of the vehicle slamming into them. Even when the bicyclists are wearing helmets, it is not uncommon for our New Rochelle bicycle accident lawyers to help clients who have sustained the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries or open head wounds
  • Spinal cord injuries with paralysis
  • Other severe neck or back injuries
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Crush injuries, amputations or death
  • Road rash or severe lacerations

Data available from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles shows that there were 5,877 total bicycle crashes across the state during the latest reporting year and that, out of those incidents, there were:

  • 5,618 injury crashes
  • 30 fatal crashes
