You see them everywhere — the blue bicycles of the New York Bike Share Program. With more than 10,000 bicycles operating out of 600 stations, people with no other means of personal transportation now have a cost-effective way to travel around New York. Inevitably, participants of the program will get into accidents, being hit by other drivers, colliding and knocking down pedestrians themselves, or as the result of the mechanical failure of a bicycle component.
As the victim of a bicycle accident caused by the negligence of another party, you have the right to claim compensation for your financial losses and suffering. You should speak with a personal injury attorney to learn more about your legal options.
