What Happened?

On June 4th, 2022, Richie was operating an electric bike on Clarendon Road in Brooklyn, New York. When he reached the intersection of East 26th Street, a vehicle from behind struck Richie and fled from the scene! Richie was thrown about 10 feet in the air and lost consciousness when he hit the ground. He was not wearing a helmet or safety equipment at the time. Thankfully, he was able to get himself off of the street with some help from bystanders when he regained consciousness, but was otherwise not ambulatory at the scene due to pain in his right leg. Richie was taken by ambulance to the emergency room at Kings County Hospital Center where he was evaluated, treated, and discharged home the next day with pain medication, a brace, and crutches.

As a result of the accident, Richie suffered injuries to his right knee and right leg. Since he was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right knee (kneecap or patella is broken but has not moved out of place), he was instructed to ice his knee, stay non-weight bearing for six weeks, and keep his leg elevated for six weeks so that it could be repaired on its own. He was unable to stand after the accident without assistance. Two months after the accident, he was able to put some weight on his leg but not for very long.  Richie experienced a lot of discomfort and had difficulty sleeping. He attended therapy and, thankfully, did not have to undergo surgery. 

Richie had heard about The Case Handler team through our radio show on 93.5 FM, Cruisin’ with The Case Handler. Two days after the accident, he contacted us for legal help. A bystander that happened to witness Richie’s accident was able to provide the license plate number of the car that drove off and our Brooklyn electric bicycle accident lawyers successfully found the Defendant that hit Richie! With the help of our highly-rated legal team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Richie recovered the MAXIMUM POLICY LIMITS of $100,000.00 from the at-fault driver’s insurance within 4 months!

Richie’s accident is a good reminder for all of us to keep an eye out for small vehicles and pedestrians on the road. While we don’t know it for sure, it’s likely that the Defendant was not paying enough attention to notice Richie in front of their vehicle. It’s much easier to see regular-sized cars and large vehicles on the road, but it takes more caution to notice pedestrians and little vehicles. If you or someone you know gets injured in an electric bicycle accident in Brooklyn, remember that “the best two lawyers you can ask for are Adam and Matt!”
