Due to the lack of safety equipment and overall protection, injuries suffered while riding a bicycle are often severe. It is not uncommon for injuries to the head, neck and spinal cord to result in fatality. If you have lost a loved one due to fatal injuries suffered during an accident, you should seek the counsel of an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
After a fatal bike accident, it can be difficult to consider monetary compensation. At Scura, Wigfield, Heyer & Stevens, LLP, we understand that you are facing a challenging emotional time, and you must have time to grieve. It is also important to consider, though, the future financial stability of your family. If the deceased was a wage earner in the family, or he or she passed away after a long and grueling series of medical procedures, you might face financial peril. We can help you as you fight to stabilize your family by fighting for the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed.
