“After a fatal collision, the family of the victim may hold the negligent party liable for their loss by filing a wrongful death claim,” explained California cycle accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Fifty-five bicyclists were killed or injured in crashes that occurred in Fremont in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS ranked Fremont 29th out of 53 cities with populations of a similar size for its incidence of fatal and injury bicycle accidents; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of David Martinez, the cyclist who was struck and killed.
