Fatal accident claims life of bicyclist


Many people in Florida use a bicycle to get around. Not only is it a good method of exercise, but it also saves money and is good for the environment. However, bicyclists are notoriously vulnerable to severe injuries or even being killed in a fatal accident. If a family receives the phone call or knock at the door that a loved one has died in a bicycle accident, they need to be fully cognizant of everything they will face in the aftermath and consider a wrongful death lawsuit.

A man was killed after he was hit by a car while on his bicycle. The man, 54, was riding at shortly before 8:00 a.m. when a Nissan Juke compact SUV driven by a 38-year-old man passed another vehicle. As he was passing, he hit the bicyclist. The rider died at the site of the crash. Law enforcement is investigating the incident to determine whether or not charges will be filed.

While the immediate issues that accompany a fatal car crash are the grief and sadness of a lost loved one at an unexpected moment, there will be other problems that come to the forefront. These include the loss of income that the person who died provided, the loss of companionship and other contributions. There will be the funeral costs and emotional upheaval from the incident. People who think the insurer will cover any expenses in the present and future due to the loved one's death are often sorely mistaken. This is why it is important to have legal help.

In this accident, a man was riding his bicycle when he was hit by a Nissan that was passing another vehicle. As the case is being investigated by law enforcement, it is imperative that people in this situation understand their legal rights and seek compensation for their losses.
