At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool, we understand the financial burden that a bicycle accident can cause riders and their families. Our New York cyclist lawyers are committed to getting our clients lives back on track. We look to recoup compensation for all of our clients’ damages, including lost wages, costly medical bills, pain and suffering, and wrongful death when it is applicable. We use our experience and considerable resources to pursue maximum compensation for all of our clients.
In addition, a fatal accident such as the one reported may give rise to a Wrongful Death lawsuit. To have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit, the victim’s family must be able to prove that the responsible party acted negligently. For the responsible party to have acted negligently, they must have had a duty of care-a legal responsibility to act with a degree of caution when performing potentially dangerous actions-to the victim. The responsible party acted negligently if they violated their duty of care. Additionally, the victim’s family must be able to prove that the responsible party’s negligence was the direct cause of death. Furthermore, the victim’s death must have inflicted either economic or non-economic damages on their family.
If you or someone you love has suffered a serious or fatal injury in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
