Astoria Bicycle Accidents

In Astoria, fourteen percent of the roads have designated bike lanes. This is a higher percentage than the overall rate throughout New York City. These lanes were built as part of the city’s bike lane system and line busy roads such as 20th Avenue, 21st street, Vernon Boulevard, as well as 34th and 36th Avenues. Protected lanes also cross the Tri-Borough Bridge which allow Astoria residents access to Randalls Island and Wards Island. Despite being so bicycle friendly, serious accidents involving bicyclists still occur throughout Astoria. If you’ve been injured in one of these incidents, a seasoned Astoria bicycle accident lawyer can help you determine your legal options. 

When involved in a bicycle accident, victims may face multiple doctor visits, hospitalization, surgery, and other rehabilitative treatments for their injuries. These injuries can include traumatic brain injury (TBI); head and neck injuries; broken bones; the need for surgery, burns and roadrash; as well as paralysis and other spinal injuries. Collisions involving bicyclists are also usually due to another’s negligence. Careless actions like excessively speeding, failing to check blind spots, and following a cyclist too closely can all cause severe injuries. Potholes or dangerous road hazards may also sometimes contribute to causing a bicyclist’s injury or death.

In situations involving negligence, a victim or their surviving relatives may seek compensation by pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Proving the elements of negligence are necessary to prevail in these cases. A plaintiff must first show that the defendant owed the victim a duty of reasonable care. It must also be shown that the defendant’s actions were a breach of that duty. The third element is that the breach was a proximate cause of the victim’s injury or death. Lastly, the plaintiff must have suffered damages as a result. Consulting a knowledgeable bicycle accident attorney in Astoria is important to make sure you have the evidence to support your claim.

Vital evidence such as witness statements, expert testimony, accident reconstruction, any footage from the scene of the accident, as well as police reports and other documentation must be gathered in these cases. The 114th Precinct of the New York City Police Department is responsible for investigating bike collisions that occur in Astoria. Reports of their findings are available within seven business days of an accident and can be obtained from their headquarters at 34-16 Astoria Boulevard. These reports can also be requested online via the NYPD’s Collision Reports Portal or the Department of Motor Vehicle’s website, for a small fee.
