Injury Claim Caused by Riding Over a Pothole on a Bicycle

As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, clients often call and ask if they have a case from being injured after hitting a pothole on a bicycle.

  • Bicyclists are often injured while riding along the road because of potholes or other road conditions, and this happens more and more frequently now that bicycling on our city streets is becoming more popular.
  • Individuals who ride bicycles in a city like Buffalo – whose roadways are subject to regular freeze and thaw conditions – assume a certain amount of risk, so it is important to recognize the difficulty in bringing a claim for a pothole incident.
  • It would be helpful in such cases to have proof that the city was on notice of the hazard, that it was repaired improperly, or that it was part of an improperly protected excavation.
