Experienced Bicycle Accident Lawyer Throughout New Jersey
Unfortunately, road rage is a well-known, but totally unacceptable phenomenon, as is driving without due care in regard to those who choose a more eco-friendly mode of transport. In the US alone, there are some 45,000 reported bicycle/motor vehicle related accidents per year. Research has shown that the actual total, including unreported accidents may be ten times higher.
A motor vehicle typically weighs multiple times more than a cyclist. In a collision between the two, the cyclist almost always comes out worse. The resulting injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises, serious head injury, even when wearing a helmet, to permanent disability or worse.
What To Do If You Get Into A Bicycle Accident?
If you or someone you know is a regular bicycle rider then it’s important you are prepared in the event you end up getting involved in a bicycle accident. Follow these tips:
- Depending on the severity of the accident if possible, do NOT leave the scene of the accident before speaking with police. Many times individuals don’t realize they are injured until hours later or even the next day.
- Avoid contact with the driver as much as possible and say as little as possible. Do NOT try and negotiate with the driver because many drivers may immediately accept blame for the accident only to recant later at the direction of their own legal counsel.
- Find any nearby witnesses and make sure you record their contact information. This could be extremely valuable down the road.
- Take photos of the accident with your mobile phone. Make sure you record a view of the vehicle as well as the damage to your bicycle.
- Contact an experienced bicycle accident lawyer or attorney as soon as possible to seek proper legal counsel.

Had a great experience with Edward lutz I was nervous about having to get a lawyer. Ed took the stressfulness out of that. He was very knowledgeable and keep me posted thought the case. He is a very genuine guy ! He also have a wonderful secretary Kathy who is always Friendly and helpful whenever I called or came in. I would highly recommend Edward lutz for your legal needs.
I have never been in an accident before and was very overwhelmed to say the least during the initial stages of this proces. Not only was it my first accident, but it included a personal injury as well. Mr. Lutz was someone who believed in me, walked me through every step of the way, and always answered my questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed. The end result to my case was very positive thanks to Mr. Lutz and his expertise. - Susan Gallico
As a lawyer, Mr.Lutz will put in the time needed! He was very patient, he will be committed to you as his client and he makes sure he’s committed to your case. Very great guy! He brings great energy and is very hard working. He also has a great team who makes you feel welcomed and comforted. - Patient - Educated - Very Resourceful
Him & His Staff Are Amazing. He Helped Me When I Was Injured. He Got Me The Money I Needed To Compensate Me With My Medical Bills. Also He’s Not You Average Attorney He Was More Like My Friiend. I Would Recomded Him To Anyone.
I was involved in a bad accident on my way to a jobsite. I was hit by a tractor trailer which resulted in several really serious painful injuries. I decided to take legal actions. I chose to hire Ed Lutz after carefully calling and emailing various personal injury lawyers. I am very happy I hired him. He truly cares about his clients and the case at hand. I called his office and believe it or not he actually answered the phone! He was pleasant to deal with and he was very professional. Now I have had some prior experiences with typical (I’ll never call you back) type lawyers. Ed Lutz is not one of them. You call his office and Kathy the secretary either gets him or he calls back usually that day. Kathy is also very pleasant to deal with on the phone and she couldn’t be nicer to deal with in person. Mr. Lutz handles the case from the very beginning to the very end. He knows the ins and outs of every detail of the case. He is extremely knowledgeable about the whole legal process and he will let you know about the different issues that may come up. His experts are also very good at what they do and the whole process couldn't have gone any smoother. Mr. Lutz got me a very large award and I cannot stress how important it is too find such a great lawyer such as Mr. Lutz. I would, without any hesitation, recommend him to handle your personal injury case.
