Personal Injury Archives

Yes, you can file your own accident report with police

After you experience a car accident, whether you're a driver, bicyclist or pedestrian, it is wise to call the police. This helps you in a number of ways. First a police officer who responds to the scene will create an official police report about the accident, which is often very helpful when pursuing a personal injury claim.

What are the common causes of car-bicycle accidents?

In New York City and surrounding areas, a growing number of people are commuting to and from work and other destinations on a bicycle. There are many reasons for this, including the convenience, ability to save money and the exercise it provides.

What are some of the top causes of bicycle accidents?

As a bicyclist, there are steps you can take to prevent a serious accident. Unfortunately, even if you do everything you can to avoid trouble, there is no guarantee that you will make it to your destination without incident.

Pedestrians injured in New York City may use no-fault recovery

New York is a very busy, crowded city that provides many opportunities every day for vehicle drivers to injure comparatively vulnerable cyclists and pedestrians. If there is good news in this scenario, it is that New York also maintains no-fault insurance claim statutes that allow pedestrians and others to receive some quick compensation. This helps to curb the effects of often lengthy personal injury suits.

Cyclists should prepare for a collision

Riding a bike seems fairly safe. Your rate of speed is relatively slow compared to motor vehicles. You always wear a helmet and brightly colored gear so that you are visible and you follow the traffic laws. However, you have had enough close calls to know that a serious accident is only inches away most of the time. While no cyclist ever wants to be involved in a collision with a car, it is important to know what to do in case it ever happens.

What laws apply to injured tourists in New York?

Millions of people visit New York every year from all over the country and the world. With so many people bustling around our state's major cities, it's not difficult to imagine that at least some of the nearly 300,000 motor vehicle accidents in 2014 alone involved out-of-state tourists. It's also not difficult to imagine that at least some of the more than 160,000 people injured that year may have been out-of-state travelers as well.

Why are designated bike lanes safer than riding with traffic?

The question of which is safer, to ride with traffic or in a designated bike lane, is one that has been debated for more than a decade. Even a 1999 Federal Highway Administration study was not enough to bring about a consensus on the issue, despite the fact that the study confirmed bike lanes were safer than riding with traffic or on the shoulder.

Who owns New York City's sidewalks?

Have you ever walked down the street in New York City, noticed a significant upheaval in the sidewalk or another danger and thought, "Someone should really fix that before someone gets hurt?" With roughly 12,750 miles of sidewalk in our city, it's bound to happen.
