What are common causes of bicycle accidents in New York City?

Bicycle accidents can happen for several reasons, such as driver negligence, faulty bike parts, dangerous road conditions, and more. Unfortunately, these accidents can lead to serious, if not permanent damages. If you were hurt as a result of a driver’s negligent behavior as a cyclist, you need to hire a seasoned lawyer who can help you get fairly compensated for your injuries.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York City?

The state of New York has imposed a three-year deadline, otherwise known as the statute of limitations, from the date of the accident for an injured party to file a personal injury claim. This means that if you do not file within the three-year statute of limitations period, you may lose the opportunity to recover damages.
