New Bedford Bicycle Accident
New Bedford is a coastal city located on the southern side of Massachusetts. It was nicknamed the “Whaling City” because during the 19th century it was the nation’s paramount whaling port. Today the city still has a major fishing industry. Many of New Bedford’s residents bicycle along the coast to watch the fishing boats. There are also several parks for cyclists including Buttonwood Park and Prince Henry the Navigator Park. When the warm weather hits New Bedford the number of bike riders throughout the city increases. Drivers may not be used to sharing the road with so many cyclists, and this causes bicycle accidents. If you or a loved one has been involved in a bicycle accident, you will need a New Bedford, MA bicycle accident attorney.
