The 34-year-old cyclist was heading south on Smith Street and tried to turn left onto Schermerhorn Street when a northbound 2004 GMC truck slammed into him.

The cyclist suffered internal injuries and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was listed in serious but stable condition.

Bicyclists injured in accidents with cars are afforded the same benefits as pedestrians. The car, truck or bus which hits you must cover all your medical bills and lost wages from work.  If the vehicle which struck you caused the accident, you may be entitled to a significant financial recovery.
