Dedicated new york Attorneys Assist Victims of Bicycle Accidents
Established law firm represents riders in New York State injured in crashes with motor vehicles
Riding a bicycle is an activity that provides physical and emotional rewards. However, busy roads and inattentive drivers can trigger a devastating accident in a split second. When this occurs, the personal injury lawyers at Lawrence Leonard, Attorney at Law, help clients in New York State seek compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and disability resulting from the crash. When bike riders are on the road with cars and trucks, they are at a disadvantage due to the massive imbalance in weight and power. As experienced litigators, we can help ensure that your legal rights are protected in the event of an accident.
Skilled advocates work to hold negligent drivers accountable
Even with the large number of bicycles on the road today, car and truck drivers often fail to take proper precautions. We thoroughly investigate each matter to determine whether evidence of negligence exists. Bikes can be especially vulnerable when other common vehicle accident causes are present, such as:
- Distraction due to cellphones or other devices
- Unsafe speed
- Failure to adhere to traffic rules and directions
- Hazardous conditions
- Drowsy driving
- Impairment due to consumption of alcohol or drugs
- Opening a motor vehicle's door on the side of moving traffic
We understand that the trauma of a serious accident often leads to difficulty recalling specific details of the incident. Firm attorneys will work with witnesses, gather physical evidence, and call upon experts when necessary to build the strongest possible case.
Knowledgeable counselors work hard for accident victims
If you have been hurt, quick legal support might be the difference between a favorable outcome and a loss of your legal right to recovery. Our attorneys will get to work immediately on your behalf in pursuit of a successful verdict or favorable settlement. Under New York law, you only have a limited time to file a lawsuit, so contacting the attorneys at Lawrence Leonard, Attorney at Law, can initiate the litigation process before it's too late.
