Bicycle Hit by Dump Truck, Daughter Killed in Wrongful Death Accident

Our law firm has recently helped a family whose loved one was riding her bicycle in the bike lane when a dump truck turned into her, killing her. The truck driver said he did not see her, but she had the right of way as she rode her bicycle into the intersection.

The wrongful death of this beautiful, young woman who had so much to offer the world was heartbreaking. This family lost a beloved daughter and sister, and it was so senseless, so preventable. In cases like these, families generally do not want money for money’s sake. They want our lawyers to pursue the truth and get justice.

While we were representing the family, it became clear that additional traffic signs would help protect bicyclists in the area. The family fought to get this done. We have amazing clients.
