Fatal Bike Accidents

Injury Attorney for Victims of Fatal Bicycle Accidents

After a fatal bicycle accident, the question arises as to whether the victim’s family has cause to bring a claim for compensation on grounds of wrongful death. S.A.M. LAW OFFICE, LLC, has ample experience determining liability in fatal accident cases.

Causes of Bicycle Accident Fatalities

Investigation into the causes of a fatal bicycle accident often highlights the dangers that bicyclists face every day. A close analysis often shows that a motorist was not watching out properly. Drivers of motor vehicles often claim after a bicycle crash that they did not see the bicyclist. However, bicycle riders have the same rights as drivers of cars and trucks to travel on city streets and rural roadways.

Secondly, there is the issue of the disadvantage that a bicyclist, unprotected by the body of a vehicle, has in an accident involving a car or truck. When crashes occur between motor vehicles and bicycles, the results are all too often catastrophic or fatal to bicyclists. Occupants of a motor vehicle are not injured at all. The vulnerable body of a bicyclist is no match for a heavy steel car or truck. Lack of protection for the bicycle rider’s body is a recipe for disaster, even when the car and bicycle are not moving at high speeds.

If a loved one was killed in a bicycle accident (whether death was instant or took place sometime later due to injuries), you are well-advised to discuss the case with an experienced wrongful death attorney.
