Brooklyn Bicycle Accident Attorney
Per New York City data, an estimated 60 percent of fatal bicycle accidents stem from illegal or negligent driver behavior.
Drivers who fail to yield are responsible for 27 percent of crashes that seriously injure or kill our New York City cyclists, leaving victims saddled with hospital bills, lost wages, and in some cases, permanent disability.
With New York’s bike share program, Citi Bike, even more cyclists are put in harm’s way as they navigate Manhattan’s clogged urban center. Even though free helmets are offered to all Citi Bike participants, surprisingly few riders use them, putting themselves at risk for life-changing injuries in the event of a collision.
The NYC Bicycle Accident Lawyers at Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. are committed to helping improve safety levels for all cyclists, and have deftly advocated for individuals who’ve been injured on both personal bikes and shared Citi Bikes.
With over 33 years of New York City bicycle accident law experience, every single case we handle is equally weighted; we never give clients short shrift because their particular incident is less complex than others.
We treat every client with the dignity, respect and attention they deserve. We want to see clients fairly compensated for their injuries and we are willing to do what it takes to move a case along as fast as possible, so they don’t languish in the land of litigation so long, their lives are ruined.
We Don’t Work Alone
Your entire body was traumatized when you suffered your bicycle injury and we rely upon professional colleagues to help us get to the bottom of your case.
Whether your unique situation requires an investigator, meetings with police, hospital emergency room staff, local Department of Transportation officials or actuaries computing settlement numbers that compensate bicycle riders for their injuries, you can count on a full team of people working on your behalf.
Mr. Oliveri and his team will get our hands on your crash records, police reports, witness statements, emergency room charts and data necessary to assess the complete picture of your incident.
We keep clients informed every time there is news that is case related so they don t find themselves lying in bed, worrying about finances and the future.

Every area has unique personal injury laws, and we have got these bases covered because we have been in this specialty practice for decades.

A Matter Of Trust
Obtaining the compensation you and your family need is not just a necessity to us, it is a moral obligation and we pride ourselves on working quickly and expeditiously because you don t have time to wait.
Some of our clients have health insurance. Some do not. We work with folks who have no experience with New York bicycle accident lawyers and courts and those who know the system well. Whatever your unique circumstance may be, we settle claims for clients who suffer short-term disabilities, emotional traumas and those who may not be able to work again.
We are the voices of those whose accidents result in death. Of course, we would not be able to do any of this without the full trust of our clients and we work hard to earn it every day.
