Bicycle Rider Faces Life Threatening Injuries after Struck by Car

By Law Offices of Jason T. Corsover  Jun. 5, 2013 4:20p

Fort Lauderdale Police are asking for the public's help in the investigation of a severe car versus bicycle accident that occurred in early May. The victim, a 40-year-old cyclist remains in critical condition with unspecified injures after the incident. Witness information was requested in order to help determine exactly how the accident happened. A.A. was traveling by bicycle on Northwest 24th Avenue just before 9:40 at night. He was struck by a driver in a gold compact sedan. Fire Rescue officials arrived quickly and took the victim to the Broward Health Medical Center where he was treated for life threatening injuries. Reports do not specify if the driver of the vehicle left the scene or if authorities are simply trying to more definitively determine what error may have led to the serious incident. Make sure you speak with a personal injury attorney about your legal rights if you were hurt in a crash that was not your fault.

Bicycle riders and pedestrians alike can suffer severe or fatal injuries if they are hit by a motorcycle, car or truck. Obviously, the human body is no match for thousands of pounds of metal. In many cases, pedestrian or cyclist accidents happen because a driver failed to take precautions that could have prevented such incidents. This negligent behavior—be it texting while driving, failing to yield to a pedestrian, failure to provide a bicycle rider with enough room on the road or performing aggressive driving maneuvers—can result in loss of life or injuries which can change a person's life forever.
