Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer on an 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.

Client Reviews

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
