Bicycle accidents can result in serious and life-long personal injuries and sometimes even death. While some cities are encouraging the use of bicycling as a method of transportation, there are serious risks involved, especially in densely populated areas. If you are involved in a bicycle accident, and have suffered an injury, you may be entitled to money compensation. The expert personal injury attorneys at our Boston law firm have decades of experience helping our Massachusetts clients recover for all of their damages.
Chautauqua County, New York Sheriff Deputies say a 15 year-old suffered serious injuries after he was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike last week on Route 20 in Pomfret, New York. Deputies have reported that Nicholas D. Galardo, 27, of Fredonia, New York, was driving west on Route 20 when he struck the teen as the teen entered the roadway into Galardo’s lane. According to the deputies, Galardo could not avoid crashing his vehicle into the teen. The 15 year-old, whose name has not been provided due to his age, suffered serious injuries and was flown to the UPMC Hamot Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania for treatment. Deputies say the teen is from Brocton, New York. At this time, it does not appear that Galardo will face any criminal charges as a result of the bicycle accident.
