Car accident in Massachusetts sends 2 to hospital

Car accidents affect millions of people each year, whether it be the victims or the families of those involved in a serious car accident. Nevertheless, there is a possibility for an accident to occur wherever roads are located. Recently, two Massachusetts residents were rushed to the hospital after they were involved in a car accident.

Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts warns bicyclists

With the current summer weather, many people may be thinking about taking their bicycles out for a spin. However, bicyclists should be careful since 630 people die from a head injury related to riding bicycles annually. Over 50,000 people experience bicycle-related head injuries nationwide every year. This is why the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA) is adamant about its warning to not overlook safety when riding a bicycle. BIA-MA and other experts say there are a variety of precautions one can take in order to decrease the chances of experiencing an injury while bicycling. One of the most important aspects to preventing injury to the head is to wear a helmet. Parents should also insist their children wear a helmet when riding their bikes. Bicyclists should also never ride against traffic, which can be dangerous as well as against state law. Bicyclists should take as much care to follow the rules of the road as car drivers do. They should make sure to adhere to lane markings as well as use hand signals to alert drivers and pedestrians of their next intended move. Also, bicyclists need to make eye contact with motorists as best as they can in order to be certain the drivers see them on the road. Unfortunately, despite all of the precautions that bicyclists might take, some will still experience a head injury while riding on their bicycles in Massachusetts. If the bicyclist is hit by a car, for instance, he or she may face heavy medical bills if medical attention is required. However, the bicyclist may be able to obtain some monetary assistance with those medical expenses by filing a civil lawsuit against the motorist or anybody else who may be at fault in causing a brain injury accident.

Motorcycle accidents can severely injure Massachusetts riders

Motorcycles may be fun and economical, but they may not be the safest choice of motor vehicles. The lack of protection that a motorcycle is equipped with, combined with their small size, decreases the safety of these vehicles. This combined with the negligence that other drivers have can increase the chance of an accident. When motorcycle accidents occur, the outcome is often severe or even fatal. Unfortunately, a recent accident here in Massachusetts left one rider seriously burned and another injured.
