All car insurance policies in New York are required to include this coverage.

The LAW TEAM has successfully settled many bicycle accident cases. In one Brooklyn bicycle accident case, a bicyclist was hit by a pluming company truck. The cyclist was on his way to work when the truck made a turn in right turn front of him.
