Bicyclist in Critical Condition After Hit and Run

Bicyclist in Critical Condition After Hit and Run

Last Thursday evening a 58-year-old man was riding his bicycle when he was struck by a pickup truck. The accident happened at 5:44 p.m. in Aurora, Illinois on Liberty Street. The grill to the red Ford F-150 was left behind when the driver fled the scene of the accident. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and later airlifted to another facility for critical injuries.

Drivers are faced with a numerous amount of distractions in this technology-based society. Cell phones, GPS systems, and in-car entertainment systems are all distractions that can take drivers eyes off of the road. When a driver takes his eyes off of the road, an accident can occur in a matter of seconds. This is especially true in cases involving pedestrians and bicyclists due to the fact that their visibility is limited.

Insurance companies can make it difficult for a victim to recover compensation for hit and run accidents. They may try to deny the claim or offer an unfair amount of compensation. Hit and run accident claims can be difficult to handle and that is why it is important to contact a skilled and experience personal injury attorney.
