New Bike Sharing Program and Increased Bicycle Accidents
New Bike Sharing Program and Increased Bicycle Accidents -- NY Personal Injury Lawyer Dallin Fuchs 212.406.1700 New York personal injury attorney Dallin Fuchs discusses how a new bike sharing program in the city has led to an increased number of bicycle accidents and injuries. Within New York City is a great new bike sharing program, allowing citizens to share bikes helping lower the costs of buying new bikes and the benefits of less cars on the roads. But the program is not without its faults. Bike safety has become an even bigger issue as there are many more bicyclists out on the roadway now. Also, additions to the roads like bicycle lanes have been confusing and surprising to drivers who have never seen them before. So as an example, if you drove to work every day in your car and made a left hand turn at the same normal street you do every day a new bike lane would be a surprise to you. You may not even see the lane, much less the bicycle that may cross your path. Being a bicycle rider comes with its own unique set of risks and this bike sharing program produces more. You need to seek the legal advice of a personal injury attorney if you've been injured through the negligence of a driver who hit you while on your bicycle. Watch this video to learn more.
