Bicycle Accident Lawyer & Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Thousands of walkers, joggers and bicyclists are struck by cars and other vehicles in New York City each year, resulting in countless fatalities and life-altering injuries. In many cases, drunk driving, texting while driving, or other extreme negligence is the cause. Serious injuries can also occur due to a defective sidewalk, pot-hole, or other hazards on unacceptably dangerous property.
