Massachusetts Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Backed By More than 80 Years' Combined Legal Experience

Massachusetts has many different bicycle paths, bike lanes, recreational opportunities, and organizations that make riding a bike easier than ever.

Bicycles are a popular option for numerous reasons, including personal health and wellbeing, commuting, and pleasure. Unfortunately, many motorists do not properly share roadways with bicyclists, and countless individuals suffer serious personal injuries and fatalities as a result.

Under Massachusetts Law, Bicyclists:
  • Can ride on any public road or street except limited access and express state highways
  • Can ride outside business districts on sidewalks (unless specifically prohibited)
  • Can pass cars on the right

Even when wearing a helmet, a bicycle accident has a high risk of harm. Scrapes, bruising, internal organ damage, spinal injuries, head trauma, and broken bones are all common injuries sustained in bicycle accidents. Motorists, as well, are governed by laws they must follow to ensure cyclists are kept safe.

Laws Motorists Must Follow Are:
  • Motorists must check for cyclists on the road before opening their doors. Being “doored” is a common cyclist accident which can cause serious injuries
  • Since bicyclists can pass cars on the right, motorists are responsible for keeping a safe distance away from passing cyclist
  • Similar, motorists must ensure a safe distance from cyclists when passing them. If they cannot pass safety they must wait until the road allows them to do so
  • Motorists must make right turns safety, making sure there are no cyclists and avoiding making abrupt right turns. They must also yield to bicycles when making left hand turns.
