Massachusetts bicycle accident injures man

Massachusetts residents taking advantage of what could be the last few weeks of nice weather may be enjoying riding their bicycle. Although most riders take precautions to prevent a crash, a bicycle accident can still happen at any time. A bicycle accident involving a bicycle rider and a motorcycle rider has made local headlines once again.

The accident occurred as a 57-year-old bicycle rider was riding through an intersection at the same time a group of motorcycles was going through the same intersection. According to reports, most of the motorcycles had made it through, but one rider, described to be in his early 20's collided with the bicyclist. The man was transported from the scene via ambulance to a nearby medical facility and later transported via helicopter to a different tactility for what appeared at the time to be head trauma.

At the time of the report, the man appears to be doing well and reports did not mention how long he was hospitalized. Meanwhile, the accident has been under investigation by the police department and reconstruction units have worked to gather the details of the accident. Although no charges have been placed, it was stated that charges were very likely. However, it was stated the charge could be as minimal as a written warning. As the investigation continues, the man may want to look into the possibility of filing a civil suit.

Any Massachusetts resident that has been involved in a bicycle accident is aware of the pain and suffering that can result. A victim may benefit from understanding their rights within the applicable state laws. They may be entitled to monetary compensation for any medical and other accident related expenses. Knowing one's rights can help them determine the best way to move forward with any appropriate action.
