Fatal Motorcycle Accidents & Wrongful Death
Motorcycle fatalities are commonly the result of a driver in a motor vehicle being distracted or under the influence of drugs or alcohol and colliding with the motorcycle. Other causes can be mechanical defects (of either vehicle), improperly maintained roads, and more. It is crucial that a full investigation is conducted in order to fully establish liability if it is in question.
It is devastating for family members to lose a love one in such an accident. There are many victims in these cases. Whole families are deprived of the companionship, love and possibly the income that was provided by their loved one. If the accident victim was the sole provider, or even a partial contributor to the family’s financial wherewithal, there could be great financial hardship. You may be entitled to compensation from the party who was at fault, which would pay not only for medical costs, but funeral expenses, estimated lost present and future income, and pain and suffering and similar damages.
Many times, even when an insurance company accepts liability, they will work very hard to award the family of a wrongful death victim the least amount possible. Without the guidance of a professional West Palm Beach motorcycle accident lawyer, you may unwittingly accept a settlement and have been convinced it is the maximum you could receive. This is very dangerous. You must have a motorcycle accident attorney that knows what you can claim, and the limits on certain types of damages. Insurance companies thrive on paying out as little as possible in insurance claims.
