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. Our experienced bicycle accident attorneys will be able to answer all of your questions and put you back on the road to recovery.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP
  • ★★★★★
    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
