Did You Get Hurt On a Citi Bike?

One of the newer ways to get around Manhattan and the boroughs is by Citi Bike. The bicycle-sharing program may help you move from one place to another faster than mass transit.

Riding a bike through a city such as New York may prove difficult, especially with all the construction and traffic. Since bicycle riders tend to face some serious injuries, what happens if you become a statistic? When dealing with the aftermath of a bike injury, you may need to consider why the accident occurred.

Was there a mechanical failure?

Since the Citi Bike program began, hundreds of thousands of people have taken advantage of it. This means that the equipment may start to break down at some point. If your bike fails while you are riding it, the crash may inflict serious damage. A mechanical malfunction may qualify you for compensation by the company.

Was a driver to blame?

The most common reason bike riders get hurt is vehicle crashes. If you practice bicycle safety and adhere to the laws, you should expect vehicle drivers to do the same. However, this is not always the case. In the event you find yourself facing an impact with a moving car, your injuries may prove serious. If the driver was at fault, he or she may have to pay for your medical care.

The most important thing to focus on after a Citi Bike injury is your recovery. Since bikes do not provide physical production during a crash, your injuries may prove severe. Getting help with finances during this sensitive time may depend largely on who or what caused the crash.
