Late last month in NYC, an SUV evidently hit a biker who slowed down suddenly on the highway. In response, the biker’s motorcycle gang chased down the SUV and assaulted the driver in front of his wife and young child.

According to Time, the bikers:

“…swarmed around Lien’s car on the West Side Highway after he clipped one of their own, who had slowed down in front of him. Lien sped off, knocking into and seriously injuring another biker, but was overtaken by members of the biker gang, who slashed his tires, smashed his windows, and beat him.”

Even with the helmet cam and dozens of witnesses, it’s still not entirely clear who committed the assault. In addition, the SUV driver did hit two bikers and severely injured one. Those crashes may form the foundation for other separate cases as well.

As part of the investigation, law enforcement has been using footage from the helmet camera one of the bikers was wearing. That footage was uploaded to the internet by the biker, and the video has since gone viral.

Police are also talking with an undercover cop who was on the scene at the time of the assault.

If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident or SUV crash, you need an attorney to help – and this case is a perfect example of why. With helmet cams, police investigations, and eyewitnesses, you really shouldn’t try to handle the case alone. You need someone with the experience and skill to launch a full investigation and get the compensation you deserve.
