Skilled Attorneys for Injured Bicyclists
In a densely packed urban region like North Jersey, riding a bicycle often makes a lot of sense and is increasingly popular as people are looking for ways to stay healthy and cut fuel expenses. Unfortunately, many car and truck drivers do not understand the importance of sharing the road with bicycles.
When drivers lack respect for bikes and don't pay attention to them on the road, they can cause serious accidents. At the Seigel Capozzi Law Firm LLC, our personal injury lawyers help injured bicyclists in Passaic County, Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey claim the compensation they deserve. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.
Our founding attorney, Jan K. Seigel, is an avid bicyclist and certified cycling instructor with the League of American Bicyclists, the oldest and largest bicycle organization in the country. He is a strong supporter of the bicyclists' rights to share the road with other vehicles and fully familiar with various theories of bicycle safety. He has also written several articles about Bicycling and the Law.
Making Negligent and Unsafe Drivers Take Responsibility
Our attorneys are highly experienced at analyzing the specific circumstances of bicycle accidents in order to effectively pursue personal injury claims against responsible parties, helping our clients obtain enough money to pay their medical bills, cover their lost wages and compensate them for their pain and suffering.
Whether you were injured while riding in a bike lane or on the road with other vehicles, you have a right to compensation for your injuries if it can be shown that your accident was caused by someone else's negligence.
These days, many communities attempt to regulate the behavior of bicyclists in ways that can sometimes be unsafe. For instance, a bike lane may be too close to parked cars, or bicyclists may be forced to ride against traffic. But drivers have to pay attention and take care to avoid injuring bicyclists no matter the circumstances.
