Personal injury: Car smashes into group of cyclists, kills 2

Bicycle enthusiasts in Florida face significant risks when they share the roadways with automobiles. The lack of protection bicyclists have, compared to those in enclosed vehicles, make riders much more vulnerable to suffer severe personal injury or worse. A tragic accident occurred on Nov. 25, during Thanksgiving weekend, killing two cyclists and injuring others.

Reportedly, a group of cyclists was eastbound on State Road 84 on Sunday morning when a 33-year-old woman drove her car into them. One of the female riders suffered fatal injuries and died within minutes of being struck by the vehicle. Another rider, a 62-year-old man, suffered severe injuries. He was rushed to a hospital in Fort Lauderdale.

The injured bicyclist underwent surgery after he was admitted to the hospital. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries some days later. Other injured cyclists were reported to be in stable condition and expected to survive. The driver who smashed into the cyclists allegedly told police that she was blinded by the sun and also distracted at the time of the accident.

Families who have lost loved ones in accidents that resulted from the negligence of other parties may pursue financial relief. Navigating a wrongful death lawsuit could be a challenging process of establishing negligence, documenting claims, presenting the case in the court and more. An experienced Florida personal injury attorney can be a valuable asset who can deal with the legal proceedings that might yield recovery of end-of-life expenses and other economic and emotional damages sustained by the surviving family members.
