Liability In Brighton Car Accidents

Bicyclists are uniquely  vulnerable in car accidents. They lack the protection of cars and are more likely to be overlooked. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), “A total of 843 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles in 2019. This represents a 3 percent decrease from the 868 bicyclist deaths that occurred in 2018. Although bicyclist deaths have decreased 16 percent since 1975, they have increased 36 percent since reaching their lowest point in 2010.” There are a number of factors that could potentially contribute to a bicycle accident.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver distraction
  • Inclement weather

All drivers have a legal obligation to take measures to avoid collisions. Pursuant to New York Vehicle & Traffic Law § 1146(a), all drivers must exercise due care in order to avoid pedestrians, bicyclists and domestic animals in the roadway. Drivers should give at least three feet to bicyclists in order to avoid collisions. There are a number of steps that should be taken after any bicycle accident.

  • Photos of the accident site should be taken.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • A thorough, independent investigation should be conducted.

The family of any victim that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
