Do I Need Insurance To Ride My Bike?
This is a great question. Automobile drivers need insurance; do bikers? The answer is no, cyclists are not required to have insurance to ride on the streets in Massachusetts. However, if you are a frequent cycler who commutes on their bike or rides often for pleasure, then you may want to consider getting insurance through your auto insurance. This would help cover your injuries and damages if the driver who hit you didn’t have enough insurance to pay.
How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take?
There’s no one answer to this question. It can vary greatly by each individual case. If you are suing an insurance company and they choose to settle, it can be a short time–a matter of weeks. But if the company or individual does not want to settle, then a case can take a lot longer. We strive to settle cases quickly and with the best outcome for our clients!
