Brooklyn Bicycle Injury Attorney
Bicycle accidents are all too common in the New York metro area, and all too often, they result in bicyclists suffering serious injuries. Drivers have a duty to look out for bicyclists, and when they do not live up to their responsibilities, they can be held accountable.
I am Daniel A. Kalish, a Brooklyn, Westchester County and Bronx bicycle accident attorney. Since 1986, I have helped injured bicyclists and other accident victims pursue fair compensation for their injuries. To schedule a free consultation to discuss your case, contact my office today.
Moving Quickly to Get the Compensation You Deserve
Normally, if you are injured in an auto accident in New York, your own auto insurance will cover your medical expenses up to your personal injury protection (PIP) limits. However, if you have been injured while riding a bicycle, your PIP policy will not cover your medical bills.
If your accident was caused by a negligent driver, that driver's insurance company is responsible for paying your medical expenses in addition to your other damages.
The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner you can get your claim started so that you can get the compensation you deserve. On the other hand, if you delay calling a lawyer and let your health insurance pay your medical bills, you may permanently lose some of your rights.
I have the experience to stand up for your rights and pursue the money damages you are entitled to. If you've been injured in a bicycle accident, don't hesitate to contact me.
