Pedestrian-Bicycle Accidents on the Rise as Biker Laws are Ignored

A woman suffered a fractured skull after a biker hit her on the Queensboro Bridge. Another New Yorker was knocked unconscious after being hit from behind by a cyclist. She broke her skull, collar bone, and three ribs, causing a hematoma that made her bleed out her ears.

Central Park is a “hot spot” for pedestrian-bicycle accidents. Unfortunately, police are rarely seen enforcing cyclist laws in the park. Park-goers on foot say they are in danger every time they visit the park. There has been a growing outcry among pedestrians over bicyclists who ignore stop signs, stop lights and other traffic laws.

A recent study found that at least 500 New Yorkers are treated in hospitals annually after being hit by bicyclists. Last year, two women were nearly killed in collisions with bicyclists in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park – leaving one in a coma for days and the other with severe brain damage. Can these victims seek compensation for damages? Absolutely! They may also be able to apply, and receive, lawsuit funding to avoid financial ruin.

Anyone involved in a pedestrian – bicycle accident is vulnerable to sustaining serious injuries because the body absorbs the impact directly.
