Waltham Bicycle Accident
Bicyclists are always at an increased risk of injury from accidents that occur on Massachusetts roadways, and elsewhere. This is no different in Waltham, which has a population of approximately 60,000 residents. Whether an accident happens due to a negligent motorist or some other cause, the attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP can help win you financial compensation that can help you in your recovery and hold any responsible parties accountable for injuries they may have caused.
The city of Waltham is located in Middlesex County and is located along the Charles River. It is the home to Bentley University and Brandies University. The Raytheon Corporation is based in Waltham. The city is bordered by Weston, Lincoln, Newton, Belmont and Watertown. There are many places to ride bicycles in the city, some beautiful trails along the river and of course to travel in and around the city.
When warm weather arrives, every year the number of bike riders throughout the city increases. Often drivers are not accustomed to sharing the road with bicyclists and this consequently can lead to a greater number of bicycle accidents. When motorists cause accidents that injure cyclists, the experienced team of personal injury attorneys at Altman & Altman will hold them accountable.How did Your Bicycle Accident Occur?
Being involved in a bicycle accident is a frightening experience. With little protection outside of a helmet a bicyclist is exposed to the prospect colliding with a motor vehicle or the concrete. Bicycle accidents can often cause serious personal injury, from bumps and bruises to broken bones to even more serious injuries, like traumatic head injuries, coma and even wrongful deaths.
Ascertaining how your bicycle accident occurred is a top priority when you work with a bicycle accident attorney from Altman & Altman. We will find out if anyone, or multiple parties were liable for your accident and hold them accountable to the full extent of the law. Certain scenarios that could be grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit include, but aren’t limited to:
- A motorist caused a bicycle accident by disobeying traffic laws
- A motorist caused an accident due to being drunk or under the influence of drugs
- A motorist caused an accident by being distracted
- A pedestrian was traversing in a bike lane, causing you to swerve into traffic and leading to a serious collision
