Helping Injured Cyclists in the Greater Boston Area

People who ride bicycles are in a unique and vulnerable position on the roads. They are not protected by the frame of a car or by a seatbelt, and they often have to navigate around traffic and other obstacles. When a bicycle accident occurs, the cyclist is likely to suffer severe injuries as a result of the collision. If you or someone you love was hit by a car while riding a bicycle, our team at Georges Cote Law can help you fight for justice. Our bicycle accident lawyers in Boston have handled hundreds of personal injury cases, and we are prepared to put our experience to work for you.

Our attorneys are ready to help you fight for the compensation you need to recover from injury. Contact us today at (617) 229-6720 to schedule a consultation with our experienced bicycle accident attorneys in Boston.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but most are caused by the negligence of other drivers. When a driver fails to act with reasonable care and the cyclist is injured as a result, the driver can be held liable for the victim’s damages. Our attorneys have helped many clients obtain compensation for their injuries and losses after a bicycle accident.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Aggressive driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to obey traffic laws
  • Defective bicycle parts
  • Poor road design or lack of maintenance

Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents

When a cyclist is hit by a car, the victim is likely to suffer severe injuries. In fact, it is not uncommon for an accident of this nature to be fatal. Those who do survive a bicycle accident are often left with life-altering injuries and require extensive medical care. If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Common injuries in bicycle accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Internal organ damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Amputations
  • Wrongful death

Bicycle Laws in Boston

Massachusetts law requires cyclists aged 16 and under to wear helmets. While not mandatory for adults, helmet use is strongly encouraged for safety.

Bicyclists in Boston have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicle drivers. This means they are entitled to use most roads and must obey the same traffic laws.

Cyclists must use bike lanes where provided, but they can move out of the lane if necessary for safety reasons or to make a turn.

Riding on sidewalks is generally prohibited in business districts unless posted otherwise. Cyclists must yield to pedestrians on sidewalks and crosswalks.

If a cyclist is involved in an accident resulting in injury, death, or significant property damage, they must report it to the police. Cyclists should also exchange information with the other parties involved.

Massachusetts follows a "comparative negligence" rule, meaning a cyclist can still recover damages even if they are partially at fault, as long as their fault is not greater than that of the other party. The damages will be reduced by the cyclist’s percentage of fault.
