Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Accident Attorney in Hyde Park and Boston Area
Boston and several other cities throughout Massachusetts have taken steps to make the roads safer for bicyclists and pedestrians. Despite these efforts, those riding bicycles on busy roadways or crossing the street are at risk of being struck by a motor vehicle.
Types of Injuries Resulting From Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
The injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents involving a car, SUV, van or truck can often be quite severe. Due to how vulnerable you are when on a bicycle or walking, the injuries resulting from those types of accidents are usually worse. Because you are less protected, the injuries suffered by bicyclists and pedestrians often include the following:
-Spinal cord injuries;
-Head injuries, such as concussion, skull fractures and scalp wounds;
-Severe lacerations, contusions and abrasions.

You Are Entitled to be Compensated for Your Injuries
If the person driving the car was at fault (negligent) in causing the accident, you would have the right to be compensated for your injuries and monetary losses resulting from that accident. Because every person has a duty to use reasonable care to ensure that the vehicle they are operating does not strike a bicyclist or pedestrian, an experienced accident attorney should be able to prove that the driver bears some responsibility for the injuries suffered by the pedestrian or bicyclist due to a car accident.
Any pedestrian or bicyclist who is injured as a result of being struck by a motor vehicle is also entitled to have the medical expenses incurred for treatment of their injuries, as well as lost wages resulting from the accident, paid for by the insurance company providing insurance coverage for that vehicle. This is what is referred to as Personal Injury Protection Benefits, also known as No-Fault Insurance.
