Stephen Michael Clift died after being hit by a car on his bicycle in Groom, Texas. The fatal incident occurred on the night of October 29, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if evidence proves that the driver of the car was at fault.
Clift was riding on his bicycle on Interstate 40 and was hit by a car. He was then taken to the hospital for treatment where he later passed away. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Clift.
Clift was on an adventure across the United States to bring awareness to military vets and their rights. It is truly unfortunate that it came to this tragic end.
It is always sad to hear about car collisions, and this bicycle accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why safety and paying attention to bicycles, motorcycles, and other transportation are just as important as paying attention to cars.
What caused the car to hit the bicycle? Did the car not see the bicycle? Was the driver distracted or impaired?
There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
