Bicyclist injured in Savannah truck accident

Bicycles are a special way of getting around Georgia's towns and cities. They've been around longer than cars, they require a lot less effort to move and they don't need fuel or parking. The biggest drawback for bikers is the lack of protection that bicycles offer, especially considering the risks on the road.

Cyclists face challenges to safety every day, mostly because they are more difficult to see than other drivers. Most accidents involving bicyclists who were not at fault begin with a driver not seeing the bike before he or she strikes it with his or her car.

The driver of a pickup truck in Savannah caused this type of accident on a recent Saturday evening. The 73-year-old man was driving in the left lane of the northbound side of Montgomery Street when he approached two bicyclists. He maneuvered to avoid one of the bikes but did not see the other before his truck collided with it.

The 22-year-old cyclist was thrown off the bike and suffered serious injuries in the accident. Emergency responders transported the victim to a regional medical center for treatment. An investigation is ongoing to determine if there was fault involved in the collision.

Regardless of criminal charges, victims of bicycle accidents with motor vehicles may seek financial damages to assist with recovery from damage and injury. Damages may cover medical expenses and add compensation for time lost during recovery. An attorney can help victims and their families sort out their options relative to the injuries suffered in an accident and figure the best legal path to help people move on.
