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.
