In NYC, there always seems to be an ongoing battle between motorists and bicyclists that must share the road, and accidents often occur when one comes too close to another. Often, you hear about a bicyclist being injured by a motorist, but sometimes, a pedestrian is severely injured by a bicyclist. This was the case recently when a woman was struck and killed by a bicyclist in Central Park. Her death occurred a few days after the accident, resulting from the severe head injury she had sustained.

While the woman was admitted to the hospital in critical condition immediately after the accident, NYC personal injury attorneys often see many others simply walk away from such accidents without seeing a physician, and wind up realizing later that they have actually suffered serious injuries. Brain injury lawyers in NYC can tell you that any head injury should be checked out by a physician immediately, no matter how slight it might appear to be.

Personal injury lawyers in NYC can also tell you that if you have been struck by a bicyclist, you have certain rights, even if it doesn’t appear that you have suffered any serious injuries. It would still be wise to visit a doctor and have an examination performed, and if the bicyclist was negligent and caused the accident, then you have the right to compensation for your medical expenses, and possibly more. A personal injury lawyer in NYC can investigate the accident and attempt to prove negligence on the part of the cyclist, ensuring that you receive compensation for any injuries sustained as well as other punitive damages.
