Bicycle Accident Traffic

Bicycle transportation is one of the most common types of transportation in the United States. It is popular throughout areas of New York, especially New York City and parts of Long Island. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it is also cost-efficient and a smart choice for your health. 

New York City and Long Island are popular areas for bicycle transportation, a common and cost-effective manner of transportation. 

However, bike crash fatalities are on the rise with over 800 deaths in 2012. Two percent of all traffic accidents that occur involve a bicycle. That comes out to just over two people a day who have lost their lives while riding a bike. The CDC reports that teenagers and young adults between the ages of 15-24 and adults over 45 have the highest mortality rate when it comes to bicycle accidents. The vast majority of bicycle accidents that prove to be fatal involve a motor vehicle. 

If you or someone you love has been injured in a bicycle accident in New York City, New York state, or Long Island, we want to hear from you.
