Bicycle Accidents in Weschester County
Our Proven White Plains Personal Injury Attorneys Can Pursue Relief
While bicycling has distinguished itself as a healthy, fast, and environmentally
conscious way of getting around, many bicyclists have also been hurt due
to motorist error. Bicyclists are particularly vulnerable to these accidents
in dense urban areas like New York City, where traffic can be hectic and
not every driver on the road remembers to stay vigilant of fellow commuters.
When this occurs and a bicyclist is injured, legal action may be called for.

Motorist Negligence in Bicycle Accidents
There is still a predominant attitude among motorists that bicycles are
secondary vehicles on the road and not worthy of precedence or the right-of-way.
Even worse is that too many drivers forget entirely that bicycles could
be in the vicinity and take actions that harm bicyclists without even
looking for them.
Common instances of motorist negligence in bicycle accidents include:
- Following too closely (tailgating)
- Drifting into bicycle lanes
- Failing to look or signal before a turn
- Failing to look before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
- Drunk or drug-impaired driving
If one of these examples—or any other irresponsible motorist behavior—led
to your bicycle accident injury, then our firm is ready to hear from you.
If necessary, a dedicated White Plains personal injury lawyer is ready
to take swift, proactive action to substantiate the circumstances of your
injury and file suit for maximum compensation on your behalf.
