What Type of Compensation can I Recover for my Electric Bike Accident?
Literally one of the best in the business. Wouldn’t want anyone else to handle situations of the law if it isn’t Mr. Redenburg. I can say and been a witness of Mr. Redenburg’s work to the point where he basically schooled the judge about how a certain law works. The judge learned something new, literally the judge thanked Mr. Redenburg for teaching him something for the future.
NEWS: 9/26/2023 – The operator of an Electric Citi Bike slammed into a pedestrian in Manhattan, leaving the victim with a skull fracture. A pedestrian suffered a fractured skull after a man on an electric Citibike slammed into the victim in a Manhattan hit-and-run, police said Tuesday. The pedestrian was near the corner of Fifth Ave. and E. 21st St. in Flatiron on Thursday when the crash happened around 12:40 p.m., cops said.
The e-bike rider zipped off, leaving the pedestrian on the street with a fractured skull, fractured right eye and bruising to the body. A police spokesperson was not able to provide the age or gender of the victim. Cops were still searching for the cyclist and released photos of him Tuesday in an attempt to identify him. The crash came after a similar incident earlier this month, in which an adored 69-year old teacher was killed.
July 27, 2023: The drivers of multiple motorized vehicles were involved in a serious crash on Wednesday night on the Manhattan Bridge bike path—where both illegal and legal mopeds are forbidden yet are increasingly common, as delivery workers shift to faster vehicles to make their meager living. According to witnesses, four or five moped and bicyclists were involved in the crash at around 11:30 p.m.
“The worst injury was a young, probably delivery, guy with several open wounds on both legs,” said one witness. The witness believed the most seriously wounded man was “definitely bleeding out,” but was saved by another cyclist “who used her sweatshirt to put pressure on the open wound.” Allegra, 37, told Streetsblog on Thursday morning that she came upon the chaos moments after the crash happened. “It was a big scooter, an electric scooter,” Allegra said, describing the crash scene, adding that a Latino man “looked really badly injured.”
According to the Fire Department’s press office, medics responded to a “collision involving electric scooters,” and transported four patients to Bellevue and NYU Langone. No other updates on the patients’ conditions were available. Among the debris found on Thursday morning was a helmet typically given out for free by the city, with the name “Juan” written on it.
The crash is the latest involving high-speed motorized vehicles on city bridge paths, which have become dangerous not only because of the speed and volume of the mopeds, but also the narrow width of two-way cycle routes on such spans at the Manhattan and Queensboro Bridges. On the latter bridge, two-way cyclists share space with pedestrians in both directions, too.
The Reddit community continued a lively debate that more and more cyclists are having.
“It’s time to take action,” posted one bike rider. “Illegal mopeds are not a value add to this city. It’s not like a bad apples thing. They are consistently traveling too fast in bike lanes and making unsafe passes. … Stop ordering Seamless/GrubHub… Report moped shops to 311. It may be time to start disabling illegal mopeds ourselves.”
Delivery workers repeatedly say that they choose the bike paths because driving their mopeds in the car lanes of the bridge and other roadways is dangerous for them as they rush to serve wealthier delivery customers, on whose tips they depend. App companies such as GrubHub and Seamless treat the workers as “independent contractors” and therefore do not regulate their mode or methods of travel.
