When a Boston bicycle accident results in injury or death, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. Sheff Law has decades of proven results in liability and personal injury law. We know the tactics insurance company lawyers and adjusters use to make attempts at minimizing your compensation, and we fight to get the settlements that our clients deserve.
Boston is the bicycle accident capital of New England. There have been 13 bicycle crash deaths on Boston’s streets since 2015, and an average of 520 crashes requiring medical assistance between 2010 and 2014. Even as the number of bicycle riders in Boston increases, the environment remains ripe for bicycle accidents. Contributing factors include the following:
- Narrow, congested streets
- A lack of bicycle lanes
- Potholes and road surface decay
- Uneven surfaces during or after road construction
- Malfunctioning traffic lights
- Insufficient or broken street lighting
- Distracted drivers
- Curbside parallel parking spaces
In many bicycle accident cases, the bicycle rider will not have an insurance company working on their behalf. This pits injured individuals against huge corporations who seek to pay out as little as possible. Sheff Law will help you get the compensation that you deserve for hospital visits, therapy programs, medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bicycle accident in Boston, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Call us at 617-227-7000 or fill out our contact form to get a free, no-obligation consultation where Sheff Law will review your case and advise you of your rights.
