Good Samaritans Lift SUV off Bicyclist after Seattle Crash

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on February 19, 2013

Good Samaritans recently helped free an injured bicyclist from underneath an SUV by working together to lift the vehicle that was on top of him. KOMO News reports that the bicycle accident occurred at NE 43rd Street and 15th Avenue NE in Seattle.

Officials have not released information regarding how the Seattle bike-car collision occurred, but the bicyclist’s foot ended up underneath the SUV. Passers-by lifted the car up and freed the 28-year-old bicyclist. The injured victim was transported by ambulance with unspecified injuries.

Bicyclists often suffer debilitating and serious injuries when struck by cars because they have nothing to protect them during the collision. Many Seattle bicycle accidents result in multiple bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries, neck and back injuries, lacerations, sprains, strains, and contusions.

Victims of Washington bicycle accidents often have to receive extensive medical treatment and spend time in physical therapy. Bicycle accidents result in broken bone injuries, which require extensive therapy to help the victim regain strength, mobility, and flexibility. The bills can add up quickly and injured cyclists and their families are often left to worry about how they will pay for their losses. Sometimes, medical or rehabilitation expenses may not be covered by insurance, which means that they will have to pay for it out of pocket.

Victims of Seattle injury accidents may pursue financial compensation for their losses from the at-fault party. A knowledgeable bicycle accident attorney will be able to determine what caused the crash, which can include dangerous roadways and negligent drivers. In such cases, support should be available for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, hospitalization, property damage, cost of rehabilitation services, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
