Framingham Bicycle Accident
The town of Framingham has a population of 68,000 and is located in Middlesex County, surrounded by Southborough, Marlborough, Sherborn, Ashland, Natick, Wayland, and Sudbury. The town is home to 13 public schools as well as a host of private schools and is accessible by several major highways. With three major business districts, Framingham’s economy is largely comprised of office complexes and retail. The town prides itself, however, on its amazing variety of outdoor sites and recreational facilities—including parks, conservation land, ponds, and walking and biking paths. Hearty bikers can be seen nearly year-round, but their presence is especially noticeable when the sun comes out in the spring. Unfortunately, bike accidents are an occasional occurrence in Framingham, as they are in any city. Potential accidents may include collisions with other bicyclists, with pedestrians, or (often most dangerously) with cars or trucks. Areas with poor visibility and less favorable weather conditions can increase the risk of such collisions.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident in Framingham, or if you are a Framingham resident and have been injured elsewhere, the seasoned Framingham, MA bicycle accident lawyers at Altman & Altman, LLP are prepared to help you seek financial recovery. Bicycling is an extremely beneficial form of transportation: it is a low-impact form of exercise, environmentally friendly, cheap, and convenient. Massachusetts law requires individuals 16 and under to wear helmets, although bicyclists of all ages are advised to wear helmets. However, cyclists generally have no other form of protection from weather, concrete, trees, and other bikes and cars. While car and truck drivers have boundary physically separating them from other cars, bikers have no such protection, so contact with another vehicle is typically direct and, therefore, quite dangerous. If you have lost a loved one due to a bicycling accident and believe your loss was due to another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
