Accidents with bicycles are common in and around the Boston area as there is a heavy presence of pedestrians and bicyclists. In our city, motorists encounter bicyclists on a daily basis during their travels. It is important that both drivers and cyclists take care to ensure that accidents such as this one do not occur. If a driver causes an accident with a cyclist, the cyclist may have a negligence claim against the driver and is entitled to recover compensation from the driver’s insurance company. In this case, it remains unclear who was at fault for causing the accident. Subsequent police investigation, witness statements and traffic scene measurements will prove crucial in the determination of negligence and, ultimately, legal responsibility for the crash.
