Kew Gardens E-Bike Accident Attorney

Electric bicycles, known as e-bikes, have become increasingly popular after their legalization in New York City in 2020. E-bikes can go up to 25 miles per hour, making them much faster and therefore more dangerous than traditional bicycles. E-bike batteries have also been linked to numerous fires throughout the city. Injuries from e-bike accidents can be severe, requiring extensive medical treatment and time off work. Kew Gardens e-bike accident attorney Michael J. Redenburg helps those who have been injured in these types of incidents recover the compensation they are entitled to from at-fault parties. Many times, it is an irresponsible driver or other motorist who causes collisions with e-bike riders. These negligent parties should be the ones who are held responsible for the costs of the harm they cause. If you need legal guidance following an e-bike accident, our team is on hand to help. Call our office today at (212) 240-9465 or contact us online to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Injuries from E-Bikes in Kew Gardens

Recently, an e-bike battery was the cause of a fire at a Kew Gardens daycare, injuring several children. Aside from fires, e-bike riders are often injured in collisions with cars and others on the road. Delivery apps like GrubHub and DoorDash serve residents throughout Kew Gardens, and many of these deliveries are done via e-bikes, making their presence on the road widespread. Many residents also utilize Citi-Bike’s e-bike program to travel throughout the area, which also increases the potential for injuries to riders. Busy Queens Boulevard is often the site for accidents involving e-bikes. If you’ve been injured, or lost a loved one, in an e-bike accident in Kew Gardens, an experienced attorney can assist you in exploring your legal options.

Accidents involving e-bikes, or e-scooters, are three times more likely to lead to a death than traditional bicycle accidents. Other injuries that occur in these types of collisions are traumatic brain injuries, amputations, broken bones, paralysis, and internal bleeding. The parties responsible for causing such injuries are the ones who should be held legally liable. A negligent motorist or a manufacturer who has released a defective product may be responsible for contributing to these types of collisions.

Claims Arising out of E-Bike Accidents

To succeed in a personal injury or wrongful death claim arising out of e-bike accidents, the plaintiff needs to prove the defendant was negligent. Negligence exists if a defendant breaches a duty of reasonable care owed to the victim, causing their injury or death. The victim must also sustain damages as a result. Many drivers engage in negligent actions such as following e-bike riders too closely; changing lanes without looking for oncoming bikers; or opening their door, parking or driving in designated bike lanes.

Even if an e-bike rider is partially negligent in causing their own injuries, they may still be compensated by another negligent party in proportion to each party’s degree of fault. Consulting a knowledgeable Kew Gardens e-bike accident lawyer is important to making sure the appropriate parties are held liable and just compensation is awarded. Victims injured by a negligent driver or a manufacturer of a defective product may receive damages in the form of past and future medical expenses, lost income, diminished earning capacity as well as compensation for pain and suffering. Family members who have lost loved ones in a fatal collision may be awarded compensation for any outstanding medical bills related to the accident, funeral or burial costs, and loss of support.

Crucial evidence like witness statements, manufacturing plans and other documentation, accident reconstructions, as well as police reports are necessary to establishing a claim. For e-bike accidents that take place in Kew Gardens, New York Police Department’s 102nd Precinct will be responsible for the investigation. Copies of reports of their findings are available at their headquarters, which is located at 87-34 118th Street.
