NYC Bicycle Accidents
Our attorneys proudly serve the Bronx and beyond
Our Bronx bicycle accident lawyers at Giampa Law have spent our careers fighting for the rights of injury victims throughout New York City. That's because we believe strongly in standing up for innocent injury victims.
In nearly every case, bicycle accidents occur because of mistakes made by drivers. But just because someone clearly caused your bicycle accident does not automatically mean that you will be fairly compensated for your injuries. In most cases, you have to demand the money you rightfully deserve for your accident.
Our bicycle accident attorneys know how the legal system works in New York City. That's because we have handled numerous cases here over the years. We know what strategies work and what approach to take to maximize settlements and verdicts for injury victims, especially those who were seriously injured because a vehicle hit their unprotected bodies. Our firm also handles pedestrian accidents in the Bronx and throughout New York City.
Common causes of bicycle accidents
Like other New York City boroughs, the Bronx has many bicycle paths connecting parks and other green spaces, including Van Cortlandt Park and the Bronx River Pathway. But getting to and from these places can be very hazardous, especially since many drivers "don't see" cyclists, as they often say after an accident. Common causes of bicycle accidents in New York City include:
- Distracted drivers
- Drivers opening parked car doors without looking
- Speeding drivers
- Drivers who tailgate cyclists
- Aggressive drivers
However your bicycle accident happened, make sure you take your case seriously right from the start. Make sure you contact Giampa Law.
How we can help with your bike accident
The biggest reason why you need a lawyer after your bicycle accident involves drivers who claim they did nothing wrong. In fact, some drivers who dislike cyclists might even try to blame you for causing your collision.
But even if the driver who caused your crash admits wrongdoing, there's no guarantee that you will be fully compensated for all of your bicycle accident-related expenses. That's because insurance companies will do whatever they can to deny or reduce claims filed by injured cyclists, simply because these companies want to maximize their profits.
We know how to take on insurance companies and win. We know how to find the facts that matter and aggressively negotiate with insurance companies. And if they won't cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court and file a bicycle accident lawsuit on your behalf. Schedule your free case evaluation right now. We're here for you when you need us most.
