Texas teen loses life due to bicycle accident

Even with all the public education about bicycle safety, for both drivers and cyclists, the number of accidents involving both is still far too high, which is truly unfortunate. Sadly, the consequences of these accidents are generally significant for the cyclist -- many having fatal outcomes. Recently, a teenager lost his life due to one such incident. The bicycle accident occurred just before Memorial Day in eastern Texas.

A 15-year-old male was hit while riding his bike in his local community, northbound on a highway. According to a report, he was struck from behind by a pickup truck. The teen was flown to a nearby hospital shortly after the accident, in critical condition. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries not long after arriving.

The driver of the pickup, a 52-year-old woman, was uninjured in the crash. Police are still investigating this incident. At this time, it has not been reported if any charges will be filed against this individual.

Losing a family member, at any time, is difficult. Losing a child, for parents and other family members, is a harrowing ordeal from which they will struggle moving forward. On top of any emotional challenges, the financial burdens of funeral expenses and medical bills that follow a bicycle accident ".can take a significant toll. The parents of this teen, and others who may find themselves in similar situations, can seek financial relief by filing civil claims in Texas courts. Upon the establishment of negligence, those whose cases are successfully litigated may receive compensation for any damages deemed recoverable, in accordance with applicable state laws.
