Truck accident results in death of a young cyclist

Law Offices of James M. Curran

School is back in session for everyone from kindergartners to university students in New Jersey. Among the older group, many ride bicycles to and from class. With more bicycles on the roadways, the risk of a truck accident rises exponentially. A construction vehicle was recently involved in a fatal accident with a bike rider.

The accident happened about 8:30 on a recent evening in Newark. The young man, a student at New Jersey Institute of Technology, was riding his bike near McCarter Highway and Gouverneur Street when he was hit by the construction vehicle. The young man who died was the son of an area councilman.

The young man was transported to University hospital where he was pronounced dead as a result of his injuries. The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, the Newark Police and NJ Transit Police are all investigating the cause of the accident. No charges have yet been filed against the driver of the construction vehicle.

The sudden death of a loved one in a truck accident, especially a young one whose adult life is just beginning, is hard to bear in New Jersey. While nothing can bring the deceased person back, a family suffering from such a loss may wish to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. An experienced lawyer can review the facts of the accident and may be able to determine if a civil suit against the parties deemed responsible is a viable option. A successfully litigated claim could assist with medical costs, burial costs and other verifiable losses.
