As you probably know by now, there are many auto accidents on the roadways of Boston everyday. No matter if you are driving in the city or further out, you will find that you always have to exercise extreme caution. The same holds true for those who navigate the busy roadways on a bike.
Although many car accidents lead to serious injury and even death, you have one thing going for you: there is a lot of steel between you and the other car. The same cannot be said when driving a bike. Instead, it is just you and your bike against the vehicle and other outside elements. This greatly increases your chance of serious injury.
Tip: never take your bike onto the road without a helmet. Doing so is extremely dangerous.
No matter how careful you are, there are going to be drivers who don’t care to share the road with bikers. For this reason, your chance of an accident goes through the roof.
Were you recently injured in a bicycle accident? If so, you have the same rights as those who were injured in a car accident. You may be able to receive compensation for your injuries, future losses, and any other expenses/damages.
You must contact a bicycle personal injury attorney as soon as possible. A free consultation will help you understand your rights while deciding if moving forward with a lawsuit would be in your best interest.
It can be a lot of fun to bicycle your way around Boston. But remember, it can also be very dangerous.
