The incident took place at approximately 2:25 p.m. Lewis suffered severe head and spine trauma, and was placed in the Intensive Care Unit until he succumbed to his injuries last Friday.

No immediate information was provided on the other person involved.


We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Mr. Charles Lewis as they search for peace and comfort.

Based on this news report, it remains unclear if the driver will be held liable for hitting the bicyclist. There are still lingering questions at this time—did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the bicyclist in the respective lanes at the time of the collision? Was there any negligence from any of the involved parties? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what caused this tragic incident.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
