An unidentified bicyclist suffered life threatening injuries in a serious Riverside County bicycle accident that occurred on April 14‚ 2011 around 7:36 p.m. on 42nd Avenue at Adams Street between Indio and La Quinta. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers‚ the bicyclist collided with another vehicle due to unknown reasons and this lead to the fatal car accident.
The Paramedics arriving at the accident scene immediately transported the victim to John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. From the available information‚ it is unclear what contributed to this fatal car accident that took the bicycle rider’s life. Was there a violation of a right of way? Is the car driver responsible for this wrongful death? Was he inattentive or too distracted to notice the bicyclist? Was he driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Only a detailed investigation supervised by an experienced Riverside personal injury lawyer can answer these and several other questions.
The death of a family member will be devastating news for the family. It is indeed a very tough time for the family and no words can be enough to reduce their loss. However‚ they have to maintain their calm and should consult with an wrongful death attorney who can advise them of their legal rights.
In this case‚ the family of the deceased may be entitled for a compensation to pay the expenses incurred for the funeral of the bicyclist‚ loss of love and companionship‚ and loss of earnings.
