Bicycle Accidents and Bicycle Defects

Practicing personal injury and defective product law since 1975

The area surrounding Basking Ridge, New Jersey, is famous for its bike routes, and thousands of bikers arrive here annually to pursue safe fun, competitive bicycle sports and bike-related training. Unfortunately, even the most careful preparations can rarely prevent bike accidents and injuries resulting from negligent motor vehicle operators, bicycle defects and negligently manufactured recreational vehicles.

At the Basking Ridge, New Jersey, law firm of D'Alessandro & D'Alessandro, LLC, we provide experienced, personal legal help following bike accidents. Why "experienced" and "personal"?

  • Experienced, because we have handled numerous bike accident personal injury cases
  • Personal, because firm attorney Greg D'Alessandro is an avid road and mountain biker as well as an Ironman Triathlon finisher

We are familiar with seemingly simple but potentially catastrophic and even deadly bicycle defects, including:

  • Carbon fiber failure
  • Bike frames that snap in half
  • Wheel failure
  • Bicycle frame stress fractures
  • Handlebar and seat post failure
  • Cable failure
  • Brake and component failure

Bike manufacturers are constantly seeking to make lighter frames, wheels and components. However, errors in design, manufacturing defects and inadequate testing can result in bike failures, bike accidents and serious and catastrophic biker injuries, including broken bones, scaring, dental injury/loss of teeth, fractured hips and shoulders, torn ligaments, and serious head and brain injuries.

Bikers are hit by negligent automobile drivers, too

Bike accidents don't just result from defective bikes/defective bike products. They also occur because motor vehicle drivers are negligent. Whether your bike accident resulted from a car/bike accident, a carelessly opened car or truck door or any other type of accident, contact us for experienced, dedicated legal help.
