Car accident sends 12-year-old cyclist to hospital

Sugar Land, Texas, residents know the precautions that must be taken on the road when riding a bicycle. Unfortunately, sometimes even the heaviest precautions cannot prevent injuries should a car accident with a bicycle occur. Sadly, such is the case for a 12-year-old boy who was taken to the hospital after being hit by a car while riding his bike.

The accident happened on the evening of Oct. 30, when the boy was out for a bike ride. The accident occurred at Grand Parkway and Sandhill Drive near the New Territory subdivision. The 12-year-old boy was wearing a helmet at the time, though he still sustained injuries. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where his condition was not known. No criminal or traffic violations on behalf of the vehicle driver have been filed, though the accident is being investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Even though this car accident involved a 12-year-old boy who will not lose wages as a result, it is possible that his parents or guardians may have to in order to effectively care for the child.

Despite the lack of charges filed since the accident, Sugar Land residents are protected under personal injury law to seek compensation for damages incurred in a car accident that is the result of someone else's negligence. Victims or family members of victims involved in accidents such as this could benefit from consulting with a personal injury lawyer, who can assist in the accident investigation and seeking compensation for losses as a result of a car accident.
