The first choice of bike riders injured in New York and New Jersey, representing:
- cyclists “doored” or struck by motorists
- families of cyclists killed on the road
- recreational cyclists injured by roadway defects or hazards
- delivery and other working cyclists injured on the job
- cyclists injured by hit-and-run or uninsured motorists
- cyclists injured by intentional acts or victims of road rage
Our years of experience representing hundreds of cyclists, and as lifelong daily cyclists ourselves, is what sets us apart from personal injury law firms that claim to “specialize in bike accidents” among many other practice areas. Our attorneys have an intuitive, real-world understanding of the legal and medical issues facing cyclists, the factors that cause crashes, and what matters most to crash victims. Our work for cyclists has been featured in the New York Times, Gothamist, CNN, the Village Voice, and many other news sources. Journalists, policymakers and other lawyers regularly look to us for advice in all matters concerning bicycling and the law.

Our Clients’ Objectives Come First.
We measure success by our clients’ objectives. Each of our clients has a direct, transparent relationship with the lawyer handling their case, not just a junior lawyer or paralegal. At our firm, lawyer and client work closely together to guarantee personal, responsive representation. In all cases, we understand our clients’ need for justice that includes but goes beyond a cash recovery. Our client’s wishes, informed by our advice and experience, are the last word. Other firms may say similar things, but we mean it — and we do it.
Winning the Medical Coverage You Need.
The immediate concern of every crash victim is getting timely, high-quality medical treatment. But under New York’s and New Jersey’s no-fault laws, a crash victim must rely on no-fault insurance or may wind up paying for their own treatment — even if they use personal health insurance.
Some personal injury attorneys consider their clients to be “on their own” when it comes to no-fault, but we walk our clients through and around the many no-fault pitfalls. Our clients get the maximum recovery from no-fault in addition to the recovery on their personal injury claim. Before choosing a lawyer, a cyclist should ask: how many times has the lawyer arbitrated a no-fault claim? We do so often for our clients, recovering thousands of dollars in addition to the personal injury recovery, without charging a fee.
Winning the Lost Earnings You Deserve.
Many of our clients are self-employed, work freelance, or have other non-conventional employment. Whether you are a full-time dog-walker or a tenure-track assistant professor, we know how to document your lost income and explain your derailed career path to maximize your recovery.
