Bicycle Accident Fatally Injures Stockton Man
A recent bicycle accident claimed the life of a beloved Stockton man and sushi chef. The incident occurred at March Lane and Percissi Lane shortly after 10:00 p.m. A man riding a Huffy Beach Cruiser bike entered the controlled intersection and was hit by two separate cars. One of the vehicles involved remained at the scene while the other left. Officers responding to the scene found the cyclist lying in the roadway. Medical personnel rendered aid to the injured man, but their efforts were unfortunately unsuccessful. Sadly, the cyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have identified the victim as 32-year-old Binbin Zhuang of Stockton. I would like to send my heartfelt prayers to those who lost a loved one in this devastating accident.
Loved One Forever Remembered
Binbin Zhuang was a beloved member of his family and the community. He was considered a well-liked man and talented chef by those who knew and loved him.
Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents
A cyclist is virtually unprotected in a bicycle accident. Few cyclists walk away from a crash without a serious injury. Some of these may include a head injury, facial scarring, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and wrongful death in some extreme cases.
Recovering Damages in a Hit and Run Accident
The driver responsible for a hit and run accident sometimes cannot be found or goes unidentified. In these circumstances, an injured cyclist or family of a deceased person may seek compensation for their damages through their own car insurance company. This option may only be pursued if the cyclist has uninsured/underinsured motorist protection or lives with a family member who carries this coverage. Keep in mind that even though you are bringing a claim against your own insurance company, that does not necessarily mean they will be on your side.
Bicycle Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims
Most times, insurance companies often use many defenses to shift blame for a bicycle accident fatality. These tactics are often used to persuade a family of a deceased cyclist to take a low-ball offer. Sometimes an insurance company may deny a wrongful death claim altogether. For this reason, it is essential to reach out to an experienced wrongful death lawyer in Stockton to ensure a claim is properly handled. This way, the attorney can obtain the compensation a family deserves for their damages. To learn more about these types of cases, watch the following video.
