Common Bike Accident Injuries
Bicycle accidents in NYC are most commonly caused by driver negligence and unsafe road conditions. If the accident was caused by a negligent driver, the driver will be held liable for damages as well.
Because bicycles lack the protection of a steel frame, seat belt, and airbags, many victims of New York bike accidents sustain multiple serious injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Head injury
- Broken or fractured bones
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding
- Crush organs or limbs
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Permanent disability
NYC Bike Helmet Laws
While a helmet can provide valuable protection for your head and brain in the event of an accident, individuals over the age of 14 are not required to wear a helmet while cycling in New York City. Although there has been discussion in the past about establishing a law that requires helmet usage for all cyclists in NYC, this has yet to become a part of the New York bike laws.
Filing a Bicycle Accident Compensation Claim
Not only are injuries incredibly painful, but they can affect the victim’s ability to work or perform basic daily tasks. Because of this, many victims are not able to pay mounting medical bills and household expenses. This can lead to overwhelming stress, psychological distress, and depression.
