In Massachusetts, victims of bicycle accidents can suffer serious injuries, incur significant medical expenses and can lose substantial income resulting from those injuries. Any time you have been the victim of a bicycle accident, you should consult with an experienced attorney who can help assist you in recovering fair compensation under the circumstances.
If the injury is a result of an automobile collision, Massachusetts?s law entitles the bicycle operator to the same protections as a pedestrian. In light of this, an experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to recover for accident related medical expenses, reimbursement for lost income, and reimbursement for out of pocket expenses (i.e., medication, rental vehicles, towing and/or storage charges) and compensation for the affect such injuries have on your enjoyment for life.
Even if the at fault party does not have adequate insurance to cover your injuries, a competent personal injury attorney will know where to look for additional coverage and/or compensation for your serious injuries. For example, some accidents occur as a result of negligent maintenance of property or defective and/or malfunctioning bicycle components.
