New Jersey Bicycle Accident Attorney

Bicycle Injury AttorneyRiding bicycles is a fun activity as well as an environmentally friendly mode of transportation. Bicycles have become very popular amongst New Jersey commuters because it saves money, is great exercise, and bypasses traffic, especially during rush hour. Some cities have responded to this influx of riders by constructing bike lanes and making their roadways more bike-friendly.

However, riding a bicycle also has its downfalls. Being involved in a motor vehicle accident while riding a bicycle can lead to serious injuries or even death. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, call the experienced New Jersey bicycle accident attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. We are dedicated to getting you the full compensation that you need.

New Jersey Bicycle Laws

Under New Jersey laws, bicycles are considered a vehicle, granting bicyclists the same rights as other motorists on the road. However, these rights are also accompanied by subjection to the same rules and regulations as other motorists.  For instance, just as a motorist must obey all traffic signals on the road, so must a bicyclist.

In addition, New Jersey requires all bicyclists under 17 years of age to wear a safety helmet that is properly fitted and fastened and meet federal standards, which are established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

New Jersey Bicycle Related Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 50,000 bicyclists were seriously injured or died in bicycle accidents in 2011. Most of these cases included accidents caused by negligent motorists who were not mindful of the bicyclists sharing the road.

Due to the lack of safety equipment and the overall inherent design of a bicycle, as compared to motor vehicles, getting into an accident while riding a bicycle can lead to serious injuries. Some common bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Road abrasion
  • Broken bones and lacerations
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, we will fight to get you the compensation you need.

You Need Effective Legal Representation

Getting injured in any type of traffic accident can lead to substantial emotional, physical and financial hardships for both the bicyclist victim and their close family members. This is a hard price to pay for the negligent or reckless actions of another individual.

The experienced New Jersey bicycle accident attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. have the knowledge and resources to successfully handle your bicycle accident case. We will investigate the facts of your case to make sure each responsible party is held liable.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
