Bicyclist struck and killed in Miramar

On Behalf of | Apr 26, 2018 | Wrongful Death |

There are many people who ride their bikes in the Miami area. Biking is a popular way to get around and it is good exercise as well. Most of the time bikes are able to safely share the road with other cars and trucks but occasionally a fatal accident occurs.

A serious bicycle accident recently occurred in the Miramar area. A cyclist was hit from behind by a car in front of Sunset Lake Elementary School on Southwest 184th Avenue. The cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend, who was not struck by the car but was riding in front of her boyfriend, witnessed the accident. The accident is still under investigation and charges are still pending.

No one expects their loved one will be seriously injured or killed in a car accident. Unfortunately, these accidents affect many families in Florida each year. Families who have been affected by a serious accident may be facing many unexpected bills, including medical and funeral expenses. Those who have been affected by an unexpected accident may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help their client by reviewing police reports, interviewing witnesses, and figuring out what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

A serious accident can affect someone for the rest of their lives. Although nothing can bring back the loss of a loved one, it is important to hold negligent parties responsible for their mistakes.
