New York bicycle accident leaves man in critical condition

Bicycling allows many individuals to have a relatively cheap mode of transportation that also allows them to get exercise. Additionally, many people also simply enjoy bicycling as a way to get some fresh air in a recreational capacity. Unfortunately, bicycles provide little protection in the event that an accident takes place, and it is not uncommon for serious injuries to result.

One man in New York was recently injured in this type of incident. Reports stated that he was bicycling at approximately 7 a.m. when he was hit by a vehicle. During the initial investigation, authorities thought the vehicle involved was a taxi, but it does not appear that the vehicle was registered with the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission. It was noted that the driver stayed at the scene.

Additional details on how the incident took place were not given in the report. It was mentioned that the bicyclist was considered to be in critical condition after the crash. He was reported as being 35 years old. No charges had been filed at the time of the report. More information may be available at a later time.

The man injured in this New York bicycle accident may feel much uncertainty in the aftermath of the event. He may not know what recovering from his injuries will entail or how he will be able to pay for the resulting medical expenses. Because these damages could present considerable challenges, he may wish to consider filing a personal injury claim against the driver considered at fault in order to seek compensation.
