I Got Hit by a Car on My Bike in NYC—Can I Sue?

A bicycle can be a great way to see NYC without getting involved in the worst of the traffic. But, many drivers still don’t take the safety of bicyclists into consideration. That means you may have been hit by a car on your bike in NYC. So, can you sue? 

The good news is, you do have a chance to sue. However, it can be difficult to get your compensation without help, as you may not have the experience or knowledge you need to seek compensation for your losses. In these cases, you may need a personal injury lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP to help you get that compensation. 

Eligibility for a Bicycle Accident Lawsuit

When you’re hit by a car on your bike, you may be concerned about whether you have a chance to file a lawsuit. You may be concerned that you were partly at fault for the accident, for example.

Typically, you’re eligible for compensation if you’re injured by someone acting negligently. They’re responsible for making sure they don’t injure anyone, so if they’re careless and you suffer for it, they may be responsible for the costs. 

Compensation for Your NYC Bike Accident

After a bicycle accident, you can sue the NYC driver who hit you. However, you’ll also need to know how much your compensation should be. You’ll need to calculate your losses caused by the accident so you receive compensation for both your economic and non-economic damages.

You should receive compensation for more than your bills. Although getting your bike repaired is important, you also need compensation for your emotional losses. These losses are intangible, which means they don’t have a specific value like most monetary damages. 

If you’ve suffered any of the following damages, you may be eligible for compensation that covers those losses:
