Since bicyclists generally have no form of protection other than a possible bicycle helmet, bicyclists are particularly vulnerable to sustaining serious injuries when struck by a car, truck, or motorcycle.
Even before fault is determined, Seiden & Kaufman will make sure that the vehicle owner’s insurance carrier immediately pays all necessary medical bills, lost wages, and various other benefits pursuant to the New York State "No-Fault" Law. To obtain these benefits, a no-fault application must be properly completed and filed with the appropriate insurance company within thirty days after the incident. Seiden & Kaufman will help you complete and file these forms to ensure that you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
An injured bicyclist may also be able to obtain additional compensation (above the amount collected from the vehicle owner’s insurance carrier) from an applicable underinsured motorist provision. Seiden & Kaufman knows how to search for and pursue all avenues of recovery.
With our thorough case preparation, network of experts, and negotiation and litigation skills, Seiden & Kaufman will maximize your recovery.
If you were involved in a bicycle accident, please call Seiden & Kaufman immediately for a free consultation.
