9 Year-Old Bicyclist Hospitalized After Failing To Yield To Traffic And Being Struck By Truck.

Biking from place to place is often the most efficient and quickest way to get to our destination. However, there is always an added risk when biking in a heavily populated area, or late at night, that some of the safety precautions we take still will not be enough. Even during those situations, if a vehicle negligently enters your bike lane, which causes you to have an accident, you may be entitled to just compensation equal to the amount of your pain and suffering and other damages. Victims of bicycle accidents should rely on an experienced bicycle accident personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through this complicated litigation process.

A 9 year-old boy was riding his bicycle near the intersection of Peter King Road and South Coastal Highway in Riceboro, Georgia, when he was struck by a pickup truck after he failed to yield the right of way. The child was then flown to the Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia with various injuries. He is believed to be in critical but stable condition. The driver of the pickup truck was arrested for a warrant issued 10 years ago but is not facing charges related to this accident since the young boy reportedly failed to yield to oncoming traffic.

Florida Teenager Riding His Bike Without A Helmet Is Struck By Truck.

Far too often, bicyclists and drivers take for granted the dangers associated with riding a bike on a busy public road.  When either a bicycle rider or a driver are not paying attention, they both have the ability to swerve and either enter the bike lane or the travel lane for vehicle resulting in an accident. If you are unfortunate enough to be in an accident between a bike and vehicle which causes you to be injured, you may be entitled to compensation equal to the amount of your pain and suffering and other damages. Victims of bicycle accidents should rely on an experienced bicycle accident personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through the complicated litigation process inherent in these cases.

A Collier County, Florida teenager was seriously injured when a car struck him early Monday morning while he was riding his bicycle across U.S. 41 in East Naples, Florida, according to state troopers. Vu Tran, 14 years-old, was crossing U.S. 41 eastbound at the intersection of Whistler Cove Boulevard at 6:36 a.m. At the same time, Benito Prado, 50 years-old, of Collier, who was driving a 2011 Ford F-150 south on U.S. 41, was passing through the intersection with Whistler Cove Boulevard on a green traffic light.

Mr. Tran allegedly crossed in front of the path of Mr. Prado, who was in the inside lane of southbound U.S. 41, causing the car’s front to strike the left side of the bicycle. Mr. Tran, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to the NCH Baker Hospital Downtown with serious injuries. Mr. Prado suffered minor injuries and was also taken to the downtown hospital. At the time of the accident, troopers did not believe alcohol was a factor, but the crash is still under investigation.
