Liability For Frenchtown Township Car Accidents

Speeding remains one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2020, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” There are a number of situations where bicycle accidents are more likely to occur.

  • Bicycle collisions are more likely to occur in urban areas.
  • Bicycle collisions are more likely to occur during periods of inclement weather.
  • Bicycle collisions are more likely to occur during the early morning hours.

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting bicyclists. If a pickup truck driver was working at the time of a collision, the company that they were working for could be held at fault. The family of any person that is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
