Attorneys Seeking Compensation for Injured Cyclists in Metro New York

Bicycles trace their roots back almost 200 years. Today, these pedal-powered machines offer an inexpensive, environmentally friendly alternative to motor vehicles, in addition to being instruments of exercise and leisure. Riding a bicycle, however, can also be exceedingly dangerous, especially on the streets of the Metro New York area. When drivers make an error with a bicycle nearby, it is often the rider who suffers the most severe consequences. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we help injured cyclists seek maximum compensation for their injuries so that they can begin to put their lives back together.

Fighting for Our Clients Rights in White Plains

A bicycle accident can happen to anyone at almost any time. Unfortunately, even if you are fully aware of your surroundings and behaving safely, others around you may not be so responsible. While these types of accidents can happen for almost countless reasons, some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers: The issue of distracted driving continues to be a major problem in New York and Connecticut, as well as the rest of the country. Drivers who are distracted by their phone, GPS, radio, or passengers can put the lives of bicycle riders in danger.
  • Traffic violations: Drivers who are speeding or otherwise not following traffic laws might not be able to react quickly enough to avoid colliding with a cyclist.
  • Drunk driving: Drunk driving remains a major threat to the safety of drivers, bicycle riders, and everyone else on the road.
  • Other Bicyclists: Even when riding on a designated bike path, injury  can result if you are hit by another biker who is riding too fast or in a reckless manner. Collisions between bike riders can result in severe injuries.
  • Obstructions, Doorings, and Debris: When an unmarked obstacle or car door suddenly appears in front of a biker, it may be too late to avoid a collision.
