Hit By A Car While On A Bike In New York City?
Have you been injured as a bicyclist? It requires a skilled and experienced attorney to properly and effectively represent the rights and interests of and injured bicyclist. At the New York City law offices of Keogh Crispi, P.C., we have a long history of standing up for the rights of bike riders throughout the five boroughs and beyond.

This is a law firm that will fight in court to insure that an injured victim recovers the financial compensation that justice requires.
While much has been done in recent years to allow the roadways to become more bike friendly, it is often the case that a motorist will fail to exercise the necessary care when it comes to sharing the roadway with bikes. A bicyclist is easily susceptible to injury in the event of an accident.
In order to have safer streets, there needs to be a greater level of awareness. In order to create a greater level of awareness, negligent and reckless drivers need to be held responsible when their carelessness causes accidents and injuries. With over forty years of experience, our lawyers know how to hold drivers responsible and help create safer streets.
As with accidents involving motorcyclists or pedestrians, bike riders have very little protection on the streets of New York. Vulnerable to both motor vehicles and the streets, even a relatively minor accident can lead to serious injuries. Working with medical professionals across the city, we will make sure you have access to the medical care you need if you have suffered any injury, including:
- Broken bones
- Orthopedic injuries
- Paralysis and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
In many instances the victims of an accident will include the family members of the injured person. In the tragic event of a loss of life our law firm has the ability and the resources to successfully recover for the financial losses suffered by the surviving spouses and children members who have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident. With the filing of a wrongful death claim, justice can be accomplished.
