Bicycle Accident FAQs

How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Experienced Boston Bicycle Accident Lawyer?

If you or a family member has been injured in a cycling accident, you may be wondering who the best Boston bike accident lawyer is for your case, and how much it costs to hire an experienced bicycle accident lawyer.  At Lowney Law, we represent bicycle injury victims on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you will not owe us any fee unless compensation is recovered through a settlement or at trial. Our fee is then based upon a percentage of the amount recovered. We also advance all litigation costs while a case is ongoing (these expenses are usually paid back through a settlement or verdict).

What Types of Injuries Do Boston Bikers Typically Suffer in Bicycle Accidents?

Bicycles are a popular method of transportation throughout the Boston area. Unfortunately, this enjoyable and healthy activity can also be extremely dangerous.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that at least 500,000 people are treated in emergency rooms each year for injuries sustained cycling. The harm can often be severe, especially when cyclists are hit by cars or other motor vehicles. Like motorcycle riders, bicyclists lack the structural buffers of a car or truck and have little protection from objects like fences, guardrails, bridges, and the pavement.

It is not uncommon for cyclists to suffer severe and catastrophic harm, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries,
  • Spinal cord damage,
  • Paralysis,
  • Neck & back pain,
  • Soft tissue damage,
  • Sprains and strains,
  • Broken bones & fractures, and
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring.

Tragically, countless cyclists are killed each year as the result of being hit by careless drivers.

Who May Be Liable for A Bicycle Crash in Massachusetts?

If a cyclist is struck by a vehicle, others in addition to the driver may be liable. Other potentially liable parties may include:

  • Other drivers
  • Businesses
  • Municipalities
  • The government

As an example, if a cyclist is hit by a police officer who was on duty, a city or the state may also have liability. Alternatively, if a city fails to properly maintain roadways and improper road conditions are a factor in a crash, the city may also be liable for the injuries sustained. As an experienced Boston bicycle crash attorney, Tim Lowney will leave no stone unturned in identifying all potentially liable parties.

What Do I Have to Prove to Recover Compensation for A Bicycle Accident Injury in Boston?

To recover compensation from a negligent driver, an injured bicyclist must prove that the defendant was operating his or her vehicle negligently. To be found negligent, the defendant must have breached his or her duty of care, which requires each of us to act with the ordinary care that a reasonable person would use behind the wheel in a similar situation. When it comes to bicyclists, the duty of care requires motorists to pass bicyclists with caution, yield the right of way when appropriate, and operate a vehicle near bicyclists at an appropriately safe speed and distance from the cyclist.

Since bicyclists may suffer serious injuries, the medical expenses can be overwhelming. An accident can also have a dramatic impact on the bicyclist’s loved ones, particularly when the victim is a family’s sole provider. If the defendant is found negligent, compensation can usually be available for any lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, future care, and the pain and suffering arising from the accident.

Filing For Wrongful Death in Massachusetts After A Fatal Bike Accident

If your loved one was killed while riding a bike, you might be able to seek compensation for your loss by filing a wrongful death claim. Potential types of damages that you may be able to recover include medical expenses, burial costs, loss of income, and loss of consortium. Although nothing will ever truly compensate you for the loss of your loved one, seeking justice from a negligent driver can help you and your family get back on your feet.

The laws in Massachusetts are complex regarding who may bring a wrongful death case.  If a loved one died, please call our office and we can explain who may be able to pursue a wrongful death case based upon the facts and circumstances of your case.
