1 killed in Austin area bicycle accident

Authorities in Texas are looking into the cause of an accident that claimed the life of a local cyclist. The bicycle accident, which occurred just before Christmas in South Austin, is the second such incident for the area in 2015. This is most certainly a tragic situation for the victim's surviving family members, who are, undoubtedly, in need of answers as to why their loved one's life was taken so prematurely.

On the morning of Dec. 22, a pickup truck struck a cyclist near Dobbin Drive and Brodie Lane. Emergency crews attempted CPR on the victim -- a 55-year-old male -- but he reportedly died at the scene of the crash. At this time, police have not indicated what may have caused this incident. It is unknown if the driver is facing any charges.

Bicyclists make up a fairly large portion of the traffic population in the Austin area. Sadly, fatal accidents happen every year despite the city's attempts at making local streets biker friendly. However, some cyclists still feel that more can be done.

When a loved one is killed in a bicycle accident, surviving family members may feel a little lost. It can be difficult having to deal with everything that follows this type of tragic event. While the damages sustained in such an incident are certainly life-altering, it may be possible to seek compensation for one's losses. Wrongful death and survival action claims may be filed against the driver believed responsible. Through successful litigation, a victim's loved ones may be awarded a monetary judgment for any damages deemed recoverable in accordance with Texas laws.
