Tens of thousands of bicycle riders are injured every year as the result of automobile drivers' inattention, failure to yield the right of way, or failure to obey traffic signs or signals. Defective bicycle design, manufacture or assembly can also cause serious bicycle wrecks. Injuries from these crashes run from road rash to fractures, traumatic brain injury, paraplegia, quadriplegia and even death.
Bicyclists essentially have the same rights as motorists. Those rights get disrespected every day on the roads. If you want your rights respected by insurance companies and in the courts, find an accident attorney who has the skill, knowledge, experience and passion to fight for you.
Scott Charnas is an attorney who specializes in accidents, and has been representing victims of bicycle and motorcycle crashes for over 25 years. This includes riders who have been smashed by cars and trucks, "doored" by inattentive auto occupants, wrecked by an obstruction on a bicycle path or whose bicycle has fallen apart due to defective design/manufacture. His New York and Boston clients have included experienced riders, casual riders, children, weekend enthusiasts and commuters, as well as a bicycle delivery person, an owner of a bicycle shop, and a semi-professional bicycle racer. This just goes to show that no one is immune to the irresponsibility and negligence of others.
Tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts have been recovered for our clients. We have worked with experts including a former Olympic rider, experts in bicycle design, road warnings and accident reconstruction, to achieve maximum results. We care about each and every one of our clients, and we take the time to communicate with them. We appreciate the trust and faith that every one of our clients places in our law firm, and we work to justify it every day.
