A large category of bicycle accidents involves a bicycle making contact with a motor vehicle which doesn’t yield at an intersection, or suddenly takes a turn and veers into the cyclist’s path, or an operator trying to overtake a cyclist, often by misgauging the distance required to pass safely. Too often, vehicles, including buses and trucks, cause bicycle accidents by not leaving adequate space around their vehicles and by hugging the shoulder of the street, pushing bicyclists off the road thereby causing a collision.
Bicyclists are required to obey the rules of the road and are also afforded the same rights as the operators of all other vehicles pursuant to Massachusetts Law. Yet, a bicyclist is still entitled to No-Fault PIP coverage under most circumstances through the policy of the vehicle who hit him as if he were a pedestrian.
PIP coverage consists of $8,000 dollars of “no-fault” coverage which can aid in paying for medical bills and lost wages. These benefits are available even if the cyclist was at fault for the collision. Further compensation for victims of bicycle accidents may include:
- Lost earnings
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
If a bicyclist dies through the negligence of the driver, our lawyers can pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of your family and punitive damages may be awarded.Quincy and Dorchester Bicycle Accident Lawyers You Can Trust
