Cambridge Bicycle Accident
Cambridge Massachusetts is rich with national history. It is home Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and numerous other universities. Today it’s an intellectual hub right outside of Boston, housing some of the largest technology companies in the country. As many Cambridge residents have grown concerned with the rising pollution, high gas costs, limited parking amongst other things, they have switched to using bicycles as their main mode of transportation. Bicycling Magazine has listed Cambridge as one of the most bike-friendly cities in the nation. The city of Cambridge works hard to provide accessible bicycling routes for its residents and has an official bicycling committee with the city government. With many of Cambridge’s residents biking to work and class, there are more opportunities for bicycle accidents.
There has been a significant increase in bike lanes, not only on Massachusetts Avenue, but on many of the main roads in the city of Cambridge. With our main office located on Massachusetts Avenue, our attorneys travel these roads every day. During the heavy commuting times, rush hour in the mornings and evenings, the roads become congested, and even though efforts are made to keep bike riders safe, the inevitable sometimes occurs and a Cambridge bike accident happens.
Bicycle accidents have the potential to leave cyclists with very serious injuries even causing death, as the safety equipment worn by cyclists is little protection against a moving car. Serious head injuries, broken bones, and severe road rash are just a few of the many potential injuries resulting from a bicycle accident. As there are many cyclists in Boston, and the Greater Boston Area, the attorneys at Altman & Altman, LLP have handled numerous bicycle accident cases.
