Bicycle Accidents in New York
Bicyclists have few protections from harm in the event of an accident. This means that when they are involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle, they are likely to sustain serious injuries or even lose their lives. In 2019 in New York, it was reported that there were over 18,000 collisions involving bicyclists. Out of these accidents, a large percentage led to injuries, and approximately 16 lives were taken. Having your life turned upside-down due to a bicycle accident can be a traumatic and life-altering experience.
