Attorney Eric Nowak and the parents of Kevin Heredia were interviewed by reporters about Kevin’s tragic death last year after being struck by a garbage truck. As recorded in this NBC News 6 video (or Spanish version):
Mr. Nowak and Kevin’s family discussed some of the facts surrounding the collision and also the public safety aspect of the case and their desire to prevent the same heartbreak from happening to other families.
In March 2014, eighteen year old Kevin was riding his bicycle to classes at a local college in Coconut Creek, Florida. As Kevin navigated the crosswalk at an intersection, a privately owned garbage truck struck him and he was killed. The family has filed suit in Broward County Circuit Court.
