Experienced Attorneys for Injured Bicycle Accident Victims
New Yorkers are increasingly utilizing bicycles as a mode of transportation, especially with the introduction of the Citi Bike program which allows individuals to rent bikes at various strategic points throughout the city. This increased use of bicycles has also increased the number of accidents. According to the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), approximately 50,000 injuries and 290 fatalities were reported in 2013 for bicyclists involved in motor vehicles accidents.

Regardless of what caused your bicycle accident, we are ready to fight for your rights and hold the responsible parties accountable for the injuries you suffered. We will look at the specific facts surrounding your accident to determine who may be responsible for the accident. Whether the accident was caused by another motorist or a city official who failed to properly repair the roads, we are dedicated to getting you the full compensation that you deserve.
Bicycle accident injuries can be more serious than other types of motor vehicle accidents due to the significantly lighter weight of the bicycle and the bike’s lack of safety features. Even if a motor vehicle is rolling at a low speed and barely collides into a bicycle, this relatively lighter impact can still cause catastrophic injuries to the bicyclist.
At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our expert legal team represents clients suffering from all types of serious bicycle injuries, including:
Bicycles offer minimal protection, usually just the helmet the bicyclist is wearing. As such, bicycle accidents are often serious and leave the injured and their family physically and emotionally devastated. Our team of attorneys sympathizes with our injured clients and will aggressively fight to help obtain the financial compensation they are entitled to for the injuries they have suffered.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
