Cyclist killed by distracted driver

Most Miami area residents understand the importance of safe driving. But, many drivers out there still make fatal mistakes while they are behind the wheel. Distracted driving is a completely preventable action that can cause a tragic accident in seconds. A recent tragic accident in Davie has left one person dead.

One person has died when a group of cyclists was hit by a distracted driver. A group of around 14 cyclists was traveling on Southwest 148th Avenue when they were hit by a driver. The driver says she was distracted by something in her car and did not see the cyclists until it was too late. Two of the cyclists were taken to Broward Health Medical Center where one died and another suffered serious injuries. Three other cyclists suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

No one ever expects their loved one will be taken from them because of a tragic accident. When this happens, a family can be devastated. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help their client figure out what happened to cause the accident and who is at fault. If the accident was caused by another person's negligence, they can be held accountable for their mistake through a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Distracted driving is a serious problem in Miami and across Florida. Drivers need to understand how important it is to always be focused on the road. When a driver causes a fatal accident because they were distracted, they need to be held accountable.
