Massachusetts woman relives bicycle accident

Riding a bicycle on a public street can be dangerous when drivers fail to pay attention. A bicycle accident can be a life changing event as one Massachusetts woman found out in 2010. The single mother recounted her bicycle accident and how her life has forever changed as a result.

The woman was hit not once, but twice by a young man that was distracted while driving. She received such severe injuries that it was unknown if she would even survive as a result, much less have any type of normal life again. Her children made sacrifices to stay home from college to take care of her and help with her rehabilitation. She was a teacher and had to take a year off because of her injuries and even now has trouble in the classroom. She has credited modern technology as the reason she is still able to teach.

An accident such as this can financially devastate a family. Between hospital bills, rehabilitation facility costs, and loss of income, it can be nearly impossible to maintain a family of four. This woman has said she is very thankful to local volunteer organizations for donating needed items for her family as well as helping to make her home more accessible as she still has physical disabilities.

Any Massachusetts resident that has been involved in a bicycle accident could benefit from researching his or her best course of action. While someone's physical life may never be the same, with an appropriate understanding of the law hopefully a victim can protect their financial future. An innocent victim shouldn't have to suffer a physical and financial loss at the hands of a negligent driver.
