Fatal Bicycle Accident
"My son was killed in a bicycle accident by a drunk driver. How can I seek justice?"
We are deeply saddened to hear about your loss. Justice can come in a couple of different forms, including a criminal case and a civil case. In a criminal case, the government will pursue punishment for the drunk driver if his or her BAC was 0.08 percent or higher. The punishment generally would include fines and jail time for the drunk driver. However, the criminal case would not collect the financial compensation that you deserve. A civil case pursuing a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death suit can help you seek justice by collecting money that would cover your son's medical expenses, funeral expenses, etc. In addition, you may be able to collect for your pain and suffering and other financial damages.
