How We Can Help You

We Use the Law to Your Advantage

A good bike crash lawyer fully understands your legal rights and what damages you can recover. When you work with Cava Law Firm, you can remain confident in our substantive knowledge of the law and legal procedures.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a bicycle accident, an attorney can help you recover monetary damages. Massachusetts law allows victims to seek compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as to your bicycle.
  • Medical costs to treat injuries, including doctor bills, prescriptions, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages or loss of income.
  • Disability or disfigurement.
  • Emotional suffering and physical pain.
  • Punitive damages, in some cases.

Not every victim will be allowed to recover every category of damages, and you need the right kind of proof to be able to show you are entitled. Our bike accident lawyers have the skills, time, and resources to be able to prove your claim.

If you have suffered from a bicycle crash, you deserve quality representation to maximize your recovery. Do not risk leaving money on the table. Call us today at (413) 737-3430 or (413) 781-CAVA (2282) to learn more about the money you could be entitled to.

We Go After the Responsible Parties

Unfortunately, bicycle accidents have causes other than just the driver of a vehicle. Our bicycle accident attorney has experience identifying all parties who contributed to your bicycle crash injuries. Depending on your circumstances any of the following could have caused your accident:

  • Dog chase or dog bite, making the owner liable.
  • Defective roadways and potholes, making the government liable.
  • Dangerous road work zones, making the construction contractor liable.
  • Defective bicycle, making the manufacturer liable.
  • Road rage or drunk or distracted driving, making the driver liable.

Our bicycle crash lawyer is dedicated to defending the legal rights of injured cyclists and holding all negligent parties accountable. We will use all legal avenues available for recovering your damages.

To partner with Cava Law Firm and get help pursuing a personal injury claim against the party who contributed to your harm, call us today: (413) 737-3430 or (413) 781-CAVA (2282).

We Understand Insurance

The law allows you to seek these damages from the driver’s liability insurance. However, not every driver follows the law requiring them to carry car insurance, and the policy a driver does have will have limits, insufficiencies, and stipulations. This is why it is key to have competent counsel on your side. Our bike crash lawyers know how to handle all these situations.

Our bicycle accident attorneys are also well-versed in the tactics insurance companies use to try to minimize your recovery. They do not understand the rights of bicyclists and will try to minimize the carelessness of the at-fault party. Then, they will try to pin some of the blame on you. For example, they might say you:

  • Were not wearing a helmet.
  • Were not following traffic laws.
  • Were not properly visible because:
    • You were not wearing bright clothes.
    • You did not have adequate lights or reflectors.
    • Were distracted.

    All of these things could impact your compensation, even if you were not at fault for the accident.

    The insurance company will say that you would not have gotten hurt as badly and your damages would not be as high if you had done everything right and followed all necessary safety precautions. Even if none of these scenarios applies to you, it is important to seek knowledgeable legal advice, because the insurance company will try even more tactics against you.

    The insurance company will undervalue your damages. They will try and save money by offering a low settlement.  They could also try to drag out the settlement process in hopes that you will accept less instead of fighting on, while your medical bills rack up. Sadly, the list of measures the insurance company will use to avoid paying is long and can victimize you further.

    When going up against a big insurance company, it is essential to have someone in your own corner to back you up. It will be even better if that bicycle accident attorney can anticipate all the insurance company’s arguments and counter them effectively. This is where Cava Law Firm comes in.

    We have committed our time and energy to learning how insurance companies work. When you partner with our bicycle accident attorneys, you reduce the chances of a low settlement from the insurance company.

    We will always take the time to answer your questions before we move forward. Some of the most common questions that our clients ask us include:

    How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit following a bicycle accident in MA?

    In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations is three (3) years on most cases. While this might sound like a long time, it is always better to reach out to us sooner rather than later and make sure your case falls into that typical category.

    Should I just settle with the insurance company if they call me?

    You should not speak to the insurance company without speaking to a lawyer first. The insurance company will do everything they can to get out of paying you money; and even if they pay you, they do not want to pay you anything more than they have to. We can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and secure a more favorable settlement.

    What types of damages can you pursue on my behalf?

    We may be able to pursue different types of damages if you have been involved in a bicycle accident. For example, we can pursue compensation for your current medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage, and future medical costs.

    Do I have to go to court to win money?

    No, you do not have to go to court to win money, and we may be able to settle your case without filing a lawsuit in court. We might feel it is better to take your case to trial in some situations, but we will discuss this with you individually when it comes time to either settle or file litigation.
