Newark Bicycle Accident
Bicycle accidents are some of the most serious accidents on our roads and most likely to cause catastrophic injuries or fatalities. This is due to the fact that bicyclists are most vulnerable to serious injuries on our roads. They have very few protections from these vehicles that are much larger than them. Drivers are supposed to share the roads with bicyclists at any cost, which means looking out for their safety as much as they possibly can and abiding by all rules of the road.
If you have lost a loved one in a serious accident, you might be able to bring a claim on behalf of your loved one. You may be entitled to certain compensation for aspects like lost wages, medical bills, funeral costs, and more. All of these damages can affect a family in many ways, making it difficult to move forward after the loss of a loved one. Luckily, we are here for you at the Los Angeles Injury Group.
