Texas family seeks compensation for bicycle accident

A Texas family is seeking compensation for a loved one's death from not only an alleged negligent driver, but also his employer and the owner of a company vehicle. The victim was struck and killed while participating in an area biking event, for which she had to travel on public roads. The driver involved in the bicycle accident was criminally charged.

The 47-year-old victim was riding on the shoulder of the road shortly before the accident, which occurred at 7:14 a.m. According to the 71-year-old driver accused of striking the woman, the sun had been shining in his eyes and he did not see her. Police, however, believe that the wreck was not caused by the sun. He was allegedly traveling faster than the posted speed limit.

The family's wrongful death lawsuit describes the accident in more detail. They say that not only was the driver traveling at a significantly high speed, but that he failed to slow on an approaching curve and then lost control, which is when he moved onto the shoulder of the road and hit the women on her bicycle. She died at the scene of the accident.

Those who are left behind to pick up the pieces after a fatal bicycle accident often suffer both tremendous emotional and financial damages. In many instances, these damages can be addressed through the careful actions of a wrongful death suit. In this Texas family's situation, the suit was filed on behalf of the victim's surviving husband and three children and seeks over $1 million.
