New York Personal Injury Lawyer Seeks to Protect Bicyclists From Harm
Date:5/21/2009

New York Manhattan based personal injury lawyer David Perecman defends the personal injury rights of bicyclists hit by motor vehicles.

New York (PRWEB) May 21, 2009 -- As subway fares and the cost of gas rise , more and more people are using bicycles to get around the city. Bicyclists need to know the safety laws. They also need to know their rights.

David Perecman, a leading New York personal injury lawyer based in Manhattan, can tell you how dangerous it can be to cycle on New York's busy streets. One among the most respected New York personal injury attorneys, Perecman has seen his share of bicycling accident victims.

"Often times, the drivers blame the bicyclists even though they were doing nothing more than riding the bike. And, in many cases, personal injury victims take blame for the accidents in which they're the victim," says personal injury lawyer Perecman.

Not surprisingly, the majority of accidents that occur between bicycles and motor vehicles are the fault of the motorist. A New York City survey completed in 2005 cites poor driving, particularly driver inattention, as the major contributing factor to these crashes which often result in personal injury.

In New York City, there are approximately 23 fatal bicycle accidents a year, according to a published government report. Most recently, on May 6, 2009, Stephen Hoadnett, a 40-year old Englishman died after being hit by a 10-wheeler truck while riding his bicycle in Richmond Hill.

An injured cyclist will need to find a personal injury lawyer with vast experience handling personal injury accident litigation in New York, or they may find themselves without a bicycle and without the appropriate personal injury settlement they may deserve.

New York personal injury lawyers, many of them bicyclists themselves, support and promote a more bicycle friendly environment.
