We would like to offer our most sincere condolences to the victim’s family following this deadly bicycle accident in Pomona.
In Los Angeles County, riding a bicycle can be a popular mode of transportation. While bicycle accidents are not as common as other types of crashes, they are also more likely to be serious and deadly. According to statistics, bicyclists have a greater than 80% chance of being injured or killed when they are struck by a vehicle. Bicycles offer no protection from the force and impact of an accident. To make matters worse, riders are often ejected from their bikes following a crash. This event further increases the chance of a serious injury occurring as a result of the accident.
California law gives victims the right to seek compensation when they have been hurt in a crash. If you have lost a family member in a California bicycle accident, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one. Certainly, there is nothing more devastating than the loss of a family member due to a traffic accident. This is especially true when your loved one has been killed in a crash that was not their fault.
