Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents
People walking or riding a bicycle have a right to use sidewalks, bike lanes, and crosswalks without having to worry that they will be struck by a motorist or someone driving a car recklessly and irresponsibly. If a driver strikes a pedestrian or bicyclist, he/she will be held liable for damages if the pedestrian or bicyclist is injured or killed. If you have been struck by a motorist while walking or cycling, you are entitled to recover damages for your lost wages, pain and suffering, psychological distress, medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and potentially other damages that you may have experienced.
To improve your chances of obtaining a large settlement for your accident, it is crucial to contact an experienced Massachusetts pedestrian and bicycle accident attorney. Our firm has recovered millions of dollars for injured plaintiffs through settlements and jury verdicts, and we are well-qualified to represent you in your accident case and help you recover the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Injuries
Pedestrian and bicycle collisions tend to result in severe injuries. In addition to broken bones and lacerations, there are a high number of head and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Traumatic brain injuries can be life-altering, and can result in death and severe injury to brain functioning and the ability for an injured person to ever live the life they were living prior to the injury.
It is our role to seek full compensation for our clients. For those who have severe and ongoing incapacitation, we will want to show a jury the complete picture of how our client’s life has been altered – physically and emotionally, work-related and family related – so that they can receive the full compensation that they deserve.
Tragically, pedestrian and bicycle collisions may result in death. We represent the families and loved ones left behind in wrongful death lawsuits. For more information about this aspect of our practice, please see our page on Wrongful Death Representation.
