Brooklyn Car Accident puts Cyclist in Critical Condition

By Hochheiser & Hochheiser LLP  Mar. 26, 2012 1:21p

The accident involving multiple cars and a bicyclist occurred on a recent midweek afternoon. An 80-year-old man driving a 4-door luxury sedan had hit a school bus and drove away from the scene. Minutes later, he hit a 63-year-old cyclist sending the man flying into the windshield of a nearby parked car. The driver then continued driving and was finally forced to stop when he ran into an SUV at high speed. The bicyclist was in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived and was rapidly transported to a local hospital. He is currently in critical condition. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident while riding a bicycle or scooter then speak with a skilled New York City car accident attorney as soon as possible.

Driver Could be Facing Serious Charges

The driver of the sedan that is thought to be responsible for three accidents all within minutes of each other was also taken to hospital. According to a police source, the man is likely going to be arrested when he is released and charged with two counts of leaving the scene of an accident. The charges could be significantly enhanced if the cyclist is not able to pull through and survive his serious injuries.

New York City Bicycle Accident Attorney

Many people in New York City choose to travel by bicycle or scooter in order to avoid the crawling pace of bumper to bumper traffic. Unfortunately, those choosing such modes of transportation can be at great risk of serious injury if hit by a car, truck, motorcycle or other vehicle. If you or someone you care about has been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should enlist the skilled representation of a New York City bicycle accident lawyer as quickly as possible after the crash. An attorney with us at Hochheiser & Hochheiser LLP has helped clients recover substantial compensation for damages and expenses associated with a bicycle or scooter collision. Cyclists and scooter riders have very little protection when it comes to an impact by a much larger motor vehicle. The injuries can be catastrophic if not fatal. We have obtained financial compensation for our clients to cover hospital fees, medication, property damage, loss of wages, loss of earning potential, pain, suffering and more.
