Bicycle accidents can be extremely serious when they involve an impact with a car. Even with all the required protective gear, a car collision with a bicycle will seldom end well for the bicyclist. Years ago, a friend of mine was casually riding her bike when she was struck and killed by a car that had veered into the back of her bike. She was thrown from the bike and upon impact with the ground was killed. This accident left a widowed husband and motherless children behind.
I read about another car vs. bicycle accident in Rancho Cucamonga, California involving a boy who was seriously injured on March 13, 2012. The article had no details about how the accident occurred. When I read about this bicycle accident, memories of my friend and her death came flooding back. For those involved in bicycle accidents, and for their families, often many questions ultimately arise. “How are we going to pay for the medical bills?” “How are we going to survive without an income?” “Who is responsible for my losses?” These questions have answers, but sometimes, the answers are not always what we want, or are not easy to come by.
To find answers to these questions, consulting a personal injury lawyer may be your best option. Taking advantage of a free consultation can help you start the process of evaluating your options and find answers to your questions. Meeting with a local bike accident attorney will help you determine if need to hire an attorney.
