Many people are under the mistaken impression that when they get into a bicycle accident it is their fault. This is not true. Cyclists are not at fault when they are injured by inept drivers or hazardous road conditions. Municipal liability is oftentimes the case with these types of injuries. The municipality is responsible for maintaining adequate road conditions and cyclists should not suffer municipal negligence in any way, shape, or form.
Common injuries associated with New York bicycle accidents include:
- Head and neck injury
- Back injury

Bicycle accidents happen most to children under the age of 14. While it is necessary to wear a helmet while riding a bike, injuries may still occur whether a child has a helmet on or not.
