Based on this report, officials are still not sure what caused the collision between the bicycle and the truck. System failure or mechanical issues will be cataloged as possible factors for the accident, and photographs of the crash site will be held as valuable evidence to forensic teams. Officials will also look into whether or not the drivers had been exhibiting reckless, negligent, or distracted behavior or had been operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If the investigation proves negligence, distracted driving, or additional factors caused the collision, the bicyclist will have the legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Legal assistance can procure much-needed compensation for a variety of personal issues ranging from vehicle insurance, medical bills, and painful injuries. It is the ultimate choice of the victim to take these steps in a case. However, seeking legal advice is highly recommended.
