Pizza Delivery Cyclist Hit by a Car in Lower East Side

Pizza Delivery Cyclist Hit by a Car in Lower East Side

A pizza delivery worker who was riding a bicycle was severely injured after being hit by a car in Lower East Side on Monday, February 8. The police arrested the driver after he fled the scene by foot.

The twenty-one-year-old driver was operating a grey Honda sedan about 6:30 p.m., driving west on Delancey St., when he hit0 the cyclist as he pedalled south on Columbia St. just at the underpass of the Williamsburg Bridge splits the road.

The medics transported the cyclists to Bellevue Hospital. The man who is believed to be in his forties was in critical condition after being hit by a car in Lower East Side. The police haven’t released his name.

The collision destroyed the front grille of the car and indented the windshield. The driver later returned and surrendered to police. Then he was transported to Bellevue Hospital after complaining of wrist pain. 

Bicycle accidents tend to end with severe injuries for the cyclists. They have no protection so when a car hits them, even if the vehicle isn’t speeding, the injuries will be severe.

Usually, cyclists end with traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and spine injuries not from the impact itself, but after they hit the ground.

If you were injured in a similar accident and the accident was clearly caused by the other party, you should get legal help. 

Your injuries might be life-threatening and the entire medical treatment will be expensive.

What you need to do is file a compensation claim against the driver’s insurance company and seek a settlement for all the expenses such as lost wages, medical bills and other injury-related expenses.

A good attorney should know how to help you with your case. It’s important not to give up until you get a suitable settlement that will cover all your costs.

  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.
