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 bus driver involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?
Once the investigation process is over and it concludes that a party has been negligent and caused the injuries of the bicyclist, the man riding the bike at the time 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.
