Were you injured while riding your bike due to a pothole or other road hazard? Watch this video to learn more about pothole bicycle accidents in New York.
I have received many calls about people who are riding their bicycles on the street and they fall and are injured due to a pothole or other defects in the street. They call and they ask, “Do I have a case?” The answer is yes, you do have a case, because the person that created the defect can be responsible for such a defect.
When you have such an accident, the first thing you do – as you do with any accident – is go seek medical attention. Then immediately hire an experienced negligence attorney who will do all the necessary things to secure your rights. Maybe the defect is caused by a municipality. Maybe it’s caused by the power company. Maybe it’s caused by the electric company. You just don’t know. First, you have to have the attorney to investigate and determine what that defect is, and who caused it. It can very possibly be a good case for you.
