Massachusetts bicycle accident injures man in Shrewsbury

A bicycle accident can occur in any number of ways and can cause injuries that range from minor to fatal. Motorists have a responsibility to look out for bicyclists and others using our roadways. A recent Massachusetts bicycle accident has injured a man in Worcester County.

The accident occurred when an SUV was making a left hand turn. At that time, the vehicle and bicycle collided. The male bicycle rider was treated on scene for his injuries and then transported to a nearby medical facility. His specific injuries were not reported, but it was noted that he was still hospitalized at the time of the report.

Police were on the scene conducting an investigation on the day of the accident and remained there for approximately 2 hours. The investigation is ongoing, and a reconstruction unit attached to the local police force is also involved. Although criminal charges could be filed following the outcome of the investigation, the victim also has the right to investigate his rights to file a personal injury lawsuit in a Massachusetts civil court. Medical bills can accumulate quickly, causing additional stress on the victim. If the evidence demonstrates that driver negligence caused or contributed to this collision, the victim could be entitled to monetary compensation to help cover those costs.

Any Massachusetts resident that has been injured in a bicycle accident may benefit from understanding the state laws pertaining to their situation. An accident victim may find it easier to focus on recovering physically and emotionally if mounting medical bills are not adding financial stress. By knowing one's legal rights, a person can have a better understanding on the best way to move forward with legal action and be hopeful to achieve an appropriate settlement.
