  2. The driver of the vehicle deserves those charges. I mean, look at the car... Must have been some excess speed there.

    Witnesses said the car was travelling at a high rate of speed and a minivan pulled out in front of the Grand Prix and he swerved and ended up hitting the bicyclists while they were at a stop sign and you see where car ended up.

    His medical bills will be taken care of.

    He will receive a large financial settlement.

    Let's pray that he recovers fully from this needless tragedy.

    How can you make such predictions?

    I'm psychic.

    In all seriousness, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the driver's excessive speed and inability to control his vehicle when he was "cut off" will have his insurance company writing many checks with lots of zeroes.

    The medical bills will all be taken care of through the insurance policy.

    The financial settlement will be negotiated between the lawyers and will come out of the insurance company's pockets.

    Our guy will be set for life; however, that is the least of his concerns at this point.

    If the car driver had minimum liability (some states is $10,000) then how are the victims going to be set for life.....

    By suing the driver and his insurance company.

    If the driver had little or no insurance and few material assets a big settlement would mean little. I hope he does get compensated but it isn't a sure thing.

    ...which is why you sue both the driver and the insurance company...

    Most if not all states have uninsured motorist coverage.

    There are uninsured motorist funds in most states but you are lucky if they will pay enough to cover hospital bills.

    Medical coverage is separate.

    My son and I were involved in an auto accident 10 years or so ago. The other driver was guilty. All of our medical bills were paid and we received an equitable financial settlement.
