The legal definition of “vehicles” in Massachusetts includes bicycles.
Bicyclists are expected to know and obey the laws of the road, remaining to the right as far as is reasonably possible and stopping when instructed to do so by traffic signs or signals. Bicyclists are also entitled to the protections of the laws of the road. Operators of motor vehicles are supposed to pass a bicyclist with care and yield to an oncoming bicyclist when turning.
Accidents involving bicyclists often have serious consequences, often accompanied by finger-pointing directed at the bicyclist. Insurance adjusters are quick to presume that the bicyclist was at fault.
If you are injured in a bicycle accident, you need a lawyer who is passionate about bicycling and bicyclists. Geoff Spofford is an avid cyclist, having toured most of the northeast and, at the age of 20 having ridden from California to Massachusetts, saving a farmer's life in South Dakota on the way. He regularly commutes to work on bike and can be found on many of the beautiful roads in Central Massachusetts.
Geoff is acutely aware of the multiple distractions affecting drivers, and the additional dangers these distractions pose to bicyclists. He has represented many cyclists for accidents throughout Central and Eastern Massachusetts.
