Long Island Bicycle Accident Lawyer
When you’re injured in a bicycle accident, you’ll need help gathering the full compensation you need for your recovery. Fortunately, a Long Island lawyer can help you work to get compensated and recover from your suffering.
As more places like New York City offer bike lanes, bike rentals, and other services for bicyclists, more people are taking to the streets to save money and protect the environment. Unfortunately, those advantages come at the loss of protection and safety.
That means many bicyclists like you are injured and suffering because drivers weren’t watching out for bikes. Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to recover your compensation with the help of a lawyer from Jaghab, Jaghab & Jaghab, PC. Your Long Island bicycle accident lawyer can help you get the answers you need when you’re suffering.
Bicycle Accident Injuries
Suffering through a bicycle crash can be more severe than a car accident. In a car, you have certain safety features that prevent you from suffering severe trauma. Airbags, seat belts, and even shatterproof glass can all go a long way to protecting your life and safety.
While riding a bicycle won’t get you to the same speeds as a car, you’re especially vulnerable to accidents and injuries. You might only have your helmet or some protective gear to protect you, leaving you exposed to road injuries that vehicle drivers might not have to worry about as much.
If you’ve been in a traumatic bike accident in Long Island, you might have suffered from any or all the following injuries:
- Brain trauma
- Friction burns or “road rash”
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Internal organ damage
New York Law Can Make Recovery Tough
Unfortunately, state laws can make recovery tough. Some laws can leave New York residents struggling to overcome their suffering, since they might find themselves with little or no compensation for their recovery.
For example, you’ll want to avoid taking the blame for the accident. In Long Island (and throughout New York), if you’re accused of being at all responsible for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by the amount of responsibility you’re assigned. That could mean a difference of thousands of dollars for your Long Island injury claim.
Because a large portion of your compensation for recovering may be on the line, an attorney might be necessary for your claim. That way, you can focus on your health, too, and not just your bike accident claim.
