Massachusetts bicycle accident injures young boy

A bicycle accident can be a tragic and emotional time for the victim and the victim's family. When a child is involved, it can be even more traumatizing for all parties involved. A recent bicycle accident in Massachusetts injured a 12-year-old boy who was on his way to school.

The accident occurred as the boy was crossing the road on his bicycle and a dump truck crashed into him. He received serious lacerations to his head as well as his elbow. He was transported to a nearby medical facility via helicopter. He was reportedly conscious at the scene.

The man driving the dump truck was described as a 22-year-old man. He was not injured as a result of the accident. No further information about the man was released. The accident is currently under investigation. When injuries are involved, an accident can take additional time to complete.

Any Massachusetts resident that feels they have been the victim in a bicycle accident may want to look into their right to file a civil suit. Should an individual be found to have been negligent or at fault, they could be held accountable and ordered to pay monetary compensation to the victim or the family of the victim. An accident can create a mound of expenses ranging from hospital bills to long term medical care. When a person is faced with such a large amount of expenses at once, it can create a financial burden. Hopefully, with the appropriate knowledge a person can move forward and receive a positive outcome that will help protect their financial future.
