Bicycle Accidents

Experienced Representation for Your Bicycle Accident Injuries

Even a slow speed accident on a bike can result in a serious injury. Pedaling properly in the bike lane at cruising speed can turn deadly if someone makes an improper turn, or a parked car opens a car door at the wrong time. A helmet provides some protection but broken bones and serious injuries can result even when the bicyclist wears a helmet.

Alekman DiTusa, LLC, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, is a personal injury law firm that represents bicyclists hurt in bicycle accidents. If our attorneys take your case, there are no legal fees unless and until we get you compensation.

Representative case: Our client was riding in the right lane of traffic proceeding through an intersection. A car passed him on the left and made an immediate right turn at the intersection, causing a collision with the bike. Our client sustained broken bones as a result of the collision. After the crash, the insurance company tried to argue that the bicyclist was at fault for not giving the car the right of way. After careful investigation and negotiation, the insurer was caused to change its position and our client received a full and fair settlement for his injuries.
