Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Expert New Jersey Bike Collision Attorneys
The recreational activity of riding a bike is enjoyed by many people throughout the state. With increasing gas prices, more commuters are choosing a bike for economic reasons, as well as the benefits of exercise. More bikers on the road, sadly means there is more of a chance of a collision involving a bicycle. Either due to distracted drivers or doors getting opened just before the biker passes (also known as "dooring"), bicyclists deal with numerous hazards while on the road with cars and other motor vehicles. Sometimes even the roadway itself, with potholes or debris, can lead to a bicycle accident. If you or a loved one are dealing with an injury from a bike collision, you may be entitled to financial compensation. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our skilled, tenacious bike accident attorneys have represented clients with their claim in courts throughout the state of New Jersey. Call our law firm with our free initial consultation to secure your compensation today.
Bicycle Accident Involving a Child Victim

Whether it be due to a driver of another vehicle, defective bicycle parts or dangerous roadways, you need an experienced bicycle accident attorney to fight for all compensation possible. Contact our proficient, diligent law firm with our free initial consultation to see what kind of work we can do for you!
Bone Fracture Injuries
The most common injury that someone gets from a bicycle collision is a broken bone. Depending on various factors, it could either be a simple fracture or something as serious as a comminuted fracture. Taking the severity of the injury to account, recovery could take weeks or months before he or she is fully healed. And even when the bone is fully healed, depending on the injury, the bone or range of motion (if applicable) may never be the same. The victim should not have to pay for the other person's negligent behavior. Contact a tough, smart bicycle accident attorney right away to help secure your future.
While many safety conscious bicyclists do wear a helmet, when one decides to not wear a helmet, the risk of a head injury is greater. Even when one does wear a helmet, sometimes it sadly does not protect them from all injuries. If the accident is serious enough, catastrophic injuries can occur. You can be left with a traumatic brain injury, skull fractures or a contusion. Trauma to the head can leave the victim with life changing circumstances, which he or she should not have to pay for. If you or a loved one received a head injury from a bicycle accident, call our bicyclist accident lawyers and let us utilize our decades of expertise to take steps towards financial compensation.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Since a bicyclist isn't protected by anything more than a helmet, if an accident does occur, it can leave the rider vulnerable to serious damages. Vertebrae can become dislocated or broken, which can leave the victim with years of physical rehabilitation and possibly even loss of movement. You could be dealing with back pain for the rest of your life. Don't take on the medical expenses and burden alone. Speak to a New Jersey personal injury attorney immediately to see what benefits you may have to help with your pain and suffering. Our personal injury lawyers are sensitive to your needs and tough where it counts. We have offices throughout New Jersey and are available for a free consultation anytime.
Bicycle Part Recalls (Defective Parts)
Just like with cars and other forms of transportation, sometimes parts for bikes become defective. While some recalls do help with this and sometimes prevent a part, or even a whole bicycle entirely, to malfunction and cause injury, for others it is not done in time. Sometimes a recall happens after someone is already injured from the defective part. If your bicycle accident was caused by a malfunctioning part, the manufacturer can be held accountable for your injuries.
