In this case, there are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in the crash. Was the driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Who had the right of way? Did the driver of the car involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?
Once the investigation process is over and it concludes that driver of the car involved has been negligent and caused the injuries of the bicyclist, the bicycle rider may have the right to pursue a claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
