Whenever the police respond to an accident involving a bicycle, they expect the worst. A person simply can’t withstand the impact of a car. There’s really nothing to protect them other than a plastic helmet. This seemed to be the case this week in Atlantic Beach.
The police responded to the report of a vehicular accident on the Atlantic Beach Bridge on Saturday, August 29th. The crash happened at about 2:30 in the afternoon.
A 27-year old man driving a 2000 Chevy was traveling in the Northbound lanes of the bridge. A man was driving in the same lanes on his bicycle. The cyclist was a 46-year old man. The police haven’t released the names of either the driver of the Chevy or the man on the bicycle.
The Chevy crashed into the man on the bike and ran him over. The cyclist suffered very serious injuries and was taken to the local hospital for treatment. The doctors confirmed he suffered multiple head traumas during the accident. His condition at the time of this report was critical but stable condition.
The driver of the Chevy was not injured.
The police in Nassau County indicated that the Chevy had recently been tested for safety. The car’s brakes had also been tested recently. The police have not indicated what caused the Chevy driver to crash into the cyclist.
The police investigation is still ongoing. Normally, one wouldn’t expect impairment to play a role in an accident that happens in the afternoon. Here, the police did not indicate if they are running toxicology reports or not.
The man on the bicycle will likely have a legal claim against the other driver.

It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.
I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.
Mark Kochanowicz is from far the best attorney you can have. Mark treats you like a friend more than a client. He truly cares and go the extra mile for you and your case, contacts you to update you in regards to your case and keep you informed at all times. Mark represented me twice and settled my cases for way more than I expected. I highly recommend Mark Kochanowicz because he is just the best on what he does!!! Thank you Mark!!!!
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.
