North Augusta News

A Sunday afternoon bike ride turned into a hospital visit for a young boy in Augusta.  According to WRDW.com, “around 12:10 p.m. on Sunday, a 13-year-old boy was biking on 2nd Street and about to pull onto Duncan Road. A 2003 GMC SUV was driving south on Duncan Road when it hit the teen.”  Per the news outlets, “[t]he teen was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”  The driver of the car was not injured.

It is unclear whether the driver will be facing charges.

Our Legal Take

As the details of this incident continue to develop, and if the motor vehicle driver is found to be at fault, the young victim’s parents may elect to file civil claims for his injuries.  Based upon its experience and success handling cycling and pedestrian claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the parents should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect his interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
