New York City Bicyclist Killed In a Truck Accident In New York

Bicycle AccidentOn December 15th, a cement truck fatally struck a bicyclist as the trucker was making a right turn on the West Side Highway. The bicyclist was heading to the Greenway and was in the crosswalk of the West Side Highway at the intersection of West 55th Street. The police found the bicyclist unconscious at the scene, with severe head and bodily trauma. The truck driver stayed at the scene of the accident. He has not yet been charged. Police officials are investigating the accident to determine whether the truck driver failed to yield to the bicyclist.

New York police recorded 21 accidents involving injuries at this same location this year. There were 20 accidents at this same location the previous year. Among the victims injured was another bicyclist.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Although bicycles have increasingly become a favored mode of transportation for New Yorkers, they may not be the safest. Bicycles offer very little in terms of protection from the hazards confronting riders on the roads of New York, especially in the harsh winter months. This lack of adequate protection can, and often does, lead to serious and deadly injuries.

Some injuries suffered in bicycle accidents include:

Traumatic brain injury and other closed head injuries
Broken or fractured bones
Back and neck injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Loss of limbs
Internal organ injuries
Death

Bicycle Accident Victims Need Legal Representation

When you are seriously injured in a bicycle accident in New York, you need to take the proper measures to legally protect yourself. One important step to take is to hire an accident attorney who specifically handles bicycle accident cases.

An experienced NYC bicycle accident attorney can help you get compensation for:

Past and future medical bills
Loss of income
Loss of future earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Emotional and mental suffering
Any other out of pocket expenses you may have incurred as a result of the bicycle accident

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
