Legal Representation After A Fatal Bicycle Accident

A high-impact collision almost always leads to substantial injuries for the cyclist, and many accidents turn deadly. If your loved one died while riding their bicycle due to another party’s negligence, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim.

For over 40 years, Pendergast Law has been the go-to personal injury law firm in Seattle and all across Washington. We handle various fatal accident cases, including those involving bicycles. Our adept team of attorneys understands the upheaval caused by serious injuries and aims to alleviate your family’s burdens by helping them seek compensation.

Protecting Cyclists’ Rights In Washington

Under Washington law, bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles. However, some still have an unfortunate bias that cyclists are “undeserving” road users who contribute to their own accidents. At Pendergast Law, we can help fight these prejudices and uphold your loved one’s rights by:

  • Investigating the accident thoroughly to establish liability
  • Gathering and preserving crucial evidence
  • Consulting medical experts and accident reconstructionists to counter any allegation
  • Ensuring any claim’s valuation is given full consideration

No amount of compensation can make up for such a tragic loss; holding those responsible accountable provides a semblance of closure and justice for your loved one.

What Damages Can Be Recovered In A Fatal Bicycle Accident?

If another party’s reckless or negligent behavior caused the fatal bicycle crash, you might be able to recover damages through a wrongful death claim. Compensable losses can include:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost income and future financial support
  • Loss of love and companionship
  • Pain and suffering by your loved one
  • Potentially punitive damages if the at-fault party’s actions were egregious

Since no amount of money can make up for this heartbreaking loss, obtaining a financial recovery can provide a sense of justice and accountability while easing the monetary burdens.
