New Jersey personal injury law firm provides aggressive representation for individuals seriously injured in bicycle accidents.
Drivers often fail to share the road with bicyclists, even though bicyclists have just as much right to enjoy public roadways as motorists. A staggering 20,000 bicycle accidents have occurred in northern New Jersey over the last 10 years. Of those accidents, 81 were fatal. Bergen County had the highest rate of bicycle accidents — nearly 3,000 crashes.
Nagel Rice, LLP, has a proven track record of producing blockbuster settlements and verdicts. We obtained a $750,000 settlement for a case involving serious head injuries sustained in a bicycle accident. Click here to review our settlements and verdicts in more detail.
Many factors can contribute to bicycle accidents. Often, motorists are texting while driving or engaged in other forms of distracted driving, and they fail to spot bicyclists. Cyclists are particularly at risk when encountering heavily trafficked intersections and turn lanes.
Additionally, poor road conditions — and even poor road design — can lead to collisions between bicycles and cars. Despite the explosion of cycling in recent years, public roadways are often not designed to safely accommodate bicycles alongside busy traffic.
