After a long winter, New Yorkers are ready to hop back on their bikes! Citi-bike is now in full effect creating an additional 6000 bikes on New York City Streets on top of the thousands of daily commuters. Since April of 2013, there have been several new Court decisions that significantly impact the handling of a bike crash claim.
Join Daniel Flanzig as he returns to these recent decisions and how they will impact bicycle litigation practice. The course re-visits the practical aspects of handling a “dooring” crash in New York including framing a complaint, deposing the exiting driver or passenger and coverage for the claim. Further, Daniel discusses preparing a client for depositions, trial and recognizing various defenses. Lastly, the course touches upon Municipal liability for road defects including investigation of a claim and governmental immunity. This course is a must for anyone who represents New York cyclists.
