Bicyclist killed in accident with car in Beckley

The family of the bicyclist will have to wait to know what happened that day. In the meantime, they are probably deep in grief after having had to bury their loved one to concentrate much on the accident itself. However, when the initial shock wears off and reality sets in, their minds may turn to what to do next.

It may seem surreal to have to deal with everyday life after a deadly car accident like this one has punched a hole in the family. It may take some time for survivors to concentrate on what options are open to them. As the medical and funeral bills begin to pour in, the family may begin to wonder what they can do.

Nothing can make the family whole again, that is certain, but being advised of their rights under West Virginia law may help them get their bearings. Filing a wrongful death action against the driver of the vehicle that hit their loved one may give the family the opportunity to at least recover from some of the financial damage done.
