The man who was pulled from his SUV and beaten by bikers in front of his family on the West Side Highway intends to sue New York City.

Alexian Lien reportedly filed a formal "Notice of Claim" against the city on Christmas Eve.

The claim accused the NYPD of failing to properly train officers.

Prosecutors say an off-duty detective was among the bikers who pursued and beat Lien back in September.
