A bicycle accident can be devastating to the victims. In a large city such as Boston, there are many bicyclists out and about daily. Police are accustomed to calls involving bicycle accidents and injuries. If a bicyclist is injured in a crash with a vehicle, it is first important to determine who is at fault, or negligent in the collision. If the vehicle operator was negligent, for example by failing to yield, the bicyclist may recover from the driver’s insurance policy. In this case, it remains unclear who was at fault for the accident. Subsequent police investigation, including statements of those involved as well as observations of any witnesses at the scene will be crucial in determining who was responsible for the accident and, ultimately, whether the bicyclist may look to the driver for compensation for his injuries.
If a bicyclist is not at fault for an accident, their recovery is the same as any other accident victim. They may obtain compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and the cost of any medical treatment needed as a result of the accident. Because bicycle accident injuries are often quite severe, the cost of medical can easily stretch into the tens of thousands of dollars.
