Maryland car accidents: Bicyclist killed in hit-and-run accident

For many, bicycling is a choice that just makes sense. In addition to exercise, bicyclists save money that might otherwise be spent on car maintenance and fuel. Unfortunately, those who choose this form of transportation face unique risks  -- mainly from motorists who fail to take appropriate care when bicyclists are in the area, often resulting in serious car accidents. For example, one man in Maryland was recently killed in a hit-and-run accident.

The accident happened in late January. Reports indicate that the 47-year-old cyclist was struck by a black sedan as they both traveled west on a Maryland roadway. The car driver allegedly fled the scene. The cyclist died at the site of the collision.

A recent press release indicates that the car believed to have been involved in the accident has been located. It is unclear, however, if the driver has been located. While police say that the accident remains under investigation, it is possible that criminal charges will be filed as a result of the fatal collision.

The ramifications of car accidents such as this are devastating. Not only is a family left grieving for the loss of their loved one, they are also likely coming to terms with the financial consequences of the unexpected death. Many who have lost a loved one in a manner such as this have struggled with the burden of funeral expenses and lost wages. Some have received relief by filing a wrongful death case in a Maryland civil court. A successfully presented case could result in an award of damages that may allow a grieving family to focus on their emotional recovery instead of worrying about financial concerns.
