A 46-year-old man who had been bicycling on Main Street in Boulder was killed this past Saturday when the driver of an SUV going the wrong way on the street attempted to make a turn and hit the victim. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, and the driver of the SUV was subsequently arrested for suspicion of careless driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and vehicular manslaughter. Although the police report associated with this case reveals little other details, such as the suspect’s alleged blood alcohol content at the time of the accident or whether the driver had a valid driver’s license, these and other details of the case will likely become clear as the criminal case proceeds against the suspect.
The outcome of this criminal case, along with the police report itself, could prove to be extremely beneficial to the family of the victim if they ultimately decide to pursue a car accident wrongful death lawsuit against the man accused of killing their loved one. While no amount of money can ever sufficiently compensate a family for the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death settlement can provide the family with money essential for paying off medical bills, paying for funeral and burial costs and providing them with compensation while they deal with the mental anguish of losing a loved one.
