Sonora Bicycle Accident
Investigators will be taking a closer look at the accident scene so that they can determine how and why the accident took place. We extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the bicyclist who lost their life in this horrific accident.
Bicycle accidents can end in serious results for all of those involved. One of the main reasons for this is because these riders on our roadways have very few protections from harm except for their helmets. When a bicyclist is struck at top speeds, they could be thrown from the bike and sustain serious injuries or even lose their life. They are at risk of traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, organ damage, and more.
Pending the investigation, the family involved in this serious crash might be able to file a wrongful death claim so that they can receive help when it comes to a variety of damages like lost income, medical bills, funeral costs, and more.
