Traffic Accident Investigation
At present, law enforcement is working hard to determine the exact cause of the collision, and many factors are being held in question. Factors like DUI and distracted/negligent driving could have come into play. Perhaps the driver had failed to comply with simple traffic laws, including right of way. Also, officials will consider if the bicyclist had been riding in a designated bike lane or in regular traffic.
In the case of distracted or negligent driving, non-guilty victims will have the legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the culprits. By seeking legal assistance, these individuals will be able to receive compensation for a variety of issues including medical bills, painful injuries, and preservation of well-being.
