Bicycle Accidents

HOLDING DRIVERS ACCOUNTABLE FOR SERIOUS INJURY BICYCLE ACCIDENTS

More people are riding bikes than ever, but unfortunately, most drivers have not adapted their behavior accordingly. Far too many people are injured in preventable bike accidents because a careless or distracted motorist did not see them or did not yield the right-of-way.

The Gucciardo Law Firm holds drivers accountable for bicycle accident injuries in the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau County, and Suffolk County. Advocating for the injured for more than 30 years has taught us what questions to ask and what steps to take to secure the maximum award. Our attorneys are always prepared to go to trial to obtain the result our client needs.

Maximizing Your Bike Accident Compensation

We have represented children and adults injured on bicycles, from bicycle commuters and recreational riders to bike messengers and hardcore cyclists. Our lawyers are familiar with the many ways in which bicyclists are injured or killed by negligent drivers:

  • Left turns at intersections
  • Veering into bike lanes or shoulders
  • Abrupt right turns
  • Opening car doors without looking
  • Changing lanes or driving aggressively
  • Dialing a cellphone or texting while driving
  • Failure to use caution in residential areas

“I run my practice as I live my life — with the interest of other people in mind. When you do that, the fruits of these labors will be significant, as the intention is genuine.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo

We utilize police reports, witness statements, video surveillance, skid marks and other evidence at the scene to show how the driver was at fault. As necessary, our trial lawyers can skillfully counter arguments that our client was reckless or contributed to his or her own accident.

Our methodical attention to detail extends to damages. Victims of biking accidents commonly suffer back and neck injury, broken bones, brain injury, loss of limb, nerve damage or other disabling injuries. We support clients through surgery, rehabilitation, and the long-term aftermath, preparing a claim for comprehensive damages to cover future needs and lost income.
