Contacting Daniel Flanzig was the smartest decision I made after I was doored on my bike. He helped me find a no-fault physician and took care of paperwork and guided me towards the best decisions for my case. He was kind, very communicative, explained things thoroughly, and his staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I recommend 100%!

Daniel Flanzig was referred to me by another attorney as the preeminent bike lawyer in New York. He did not disappoint. My case was somewhat complicated and Dan was able to expertly navigate the process and reach a settlement with the other party. He knows the laws inside and out and is a tireless advocate for bike safety. Daniel is extremely knowledgable, through and patient. He and his staff will always answer all questions no matter how big our small. If you've had the misfortune of being injured in a bike accident, or any other type of accident, due to another party's negligence, do not hesitate to call Flanzig and Flanzig. I give them my highest recommendation.

Dan and his team were incredible from start to finish. I was struck by a utility truck during a recreational bike ride and had to go through a complicated shoulder surgery and a long recovery. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the details of bike law and what makes it unique. They helped us ensure our medical bills were covered so we had no out of pocket expenses and handled every detail. He and his office were straightforward, transparent and supportive throughout the entire settlement process. We were more than happy with the result and we would highly recommend Dan and his office to anyone.

Daniel Flanzig is the lawyer you want on your team. Extraordinary knowledge, expertise, and experience are some of the assets he brings to the table to start with. His knowledge, not only of bicycle law but of relevant precedent and traffic law is staggering. Equally impressive is his ability to deal with opposing counsel in a collegial but definitive way. He and his firecracker staff were on top of my case from “go”, and always made me feel at ease and taken care of. Best of all, he got me my entire settlement without ever having to set foot in the courtroom. He knows his law and how to practice it. Do yourself a favor and get this guy to represent you.

A couple of years ago, I was involved in an accident while biking to work. The driver of a vehicle parked on the side of the road didn't check his mirrors before opening his door, and so when he swung the door open, it struck me and knocked me into another vehicle on the road. I fractured my hand and eventually needed to have surgery.
At the time of the accident, I did what anyone in that situation should do: I gathered information, found witnesses, snapped some photos of the scene of the accident, got a police report, and made sure to go to the hospital in an ambulance just in case I had unknowingly injured my neck, head, or back. However, I still needed to find a good lawyer to make sure that my (extensive) bills and other costs would be covered, because I have never battled an insurance company before and worried that they would try to avoid fault.
I researched and spoke with multiple lawyers and decided to go with Daniel Flanzig. He understands the law inside and out and is a cyclist himself. After speaking with him, I felt like I could rest my fears about the situation and trust him to navigate me through the legal labyrinth of my case. The driver's car insurance, unsurprisingly, put up a fight and we went through a lot of BS for the next two years. Daniel and his team were always on top of everything - from my bills, court dates, prepping me for depositions, regularly updating me about what was happening, and more. The experience was nerve-wracking, but Daniel and his team instilled a sense of confidence and security in me that all was being taken care of. I'm happy to report that the case settled in my favor.
If you are reading this, you have probably been in an accident or know someone who has, and you are probably trying to decide who to choose among the hundreds of lawyers out there. Do your research, but rest assured that you cannot go wrong with Daniel Flanzig and his team. They will work hard for you and take care of your situation just like they did for me. While I hope that I will not experience another accident, I know that if I do, I'll go back to Daniel without hesitation.

If you have been in a bike accident, don't try to navigate the labyrinthine NYS no-fault system by yourself. You need the high quality, responsive, transparent representation that Dan and Cathy Flanzig provide.
In August of 2012 I was doored by a livery cab. I was severely injured, and had to be taken from the scene by an ambulance. The cab driver didn't didn't stay to talk to police. No police report was filed. After I was discharged, I had about $10,000 of medical bills, and I had to investigate this situation on my own. Since there is no official language for being doored, what I wound up interacting with is an entire bureaucracy centralized around motor vehicle to motor vehicle accidents. Every form you submit, and every person you interact with perceives your situation this way. Everything has to be altered to suit a bicycle/car accident. It was a nightmare, and without knowing my options, I tried to do it myself, and I did it wrong.
I was denied no fault coverage on this basis and found myself a month into my post-accident life without medical treatment. I reached out to several other firms for help only to have them have no interest in helping me. By chance, I read an article on Gothamist about the proliferation of firms dedicated to cyclists' rights and found Flanzig and Flanzig. I wrote an angry, emotional email describing my situation at about 8pm, and before 9pm I was talking to Daniel, and about my options.
It is amazing that they took me on in the first place knowing that there would be several months of paperwork involved with circumventing the mess/trap I'd walked into trying to represent myself--BEFORE any sort of settlement could be discussed in the future. That it took months to get this insurance company to even take responsibility for my medical bills is testament to their practice. In the interceding time, Daniel has counseled me every step of the way including helping me find the quality medical treatment I desperately needed, and fought for every bit of my lost wages. I know that without his and Cathy's help and the help of his team my quality of life would be a shadow of what it is today.

After being rear-ended by a car while I was riding, Flanzig and Flanzig helped me handle all of the complications in my life the accident caused. Their dedication to my case was astounding. The firm's staff is highly responsive and I never felt like I was left out of the loop. Should anyone I know ever find themselves in need of a lawyer I would not hesitate to put them in touch with Flanzig & Flanzig.

Following my cycling accident I contacted Daniel Flanzig. Being an avid cyclist himself, Dan naturally understood what every cyclist has to factor in while riding the roads. You will not find a more responsive attorney than Daniel - period. What seemed as weak case Daniel took to a successful settlement. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney again, but if I do, Daniel Flanzig is on my speed-dial.

The Flanzig family have represented my family and I on several matters over the past 3 decades. Daniel specifically has been a trusted advisor of mine on matters including personal injury, medical malpractice, general business law as well as handling legal matters related to the estate of my parents.
While the advice may not always be what you want to hear as a claimant, it has always been sound and just. In the end, the results have always been positive.
Most importantly, as a business executive who deals with legal contract matters on a daily basis, I am confident that when I am speaking with Mr. Flanzig I am dealing with an attorney with integrity and knowledge, who always has my best interests in mind.
