According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist is 35 times more likely than a motorist to die in a car crash. When a biker is injured by a motorist because of that motorist’s negligence, they may have a personal injury claim.
Fatal Motorcycle Crashes
Fatal accidents result in an overwhelming list of emotional and physical burdens for family members and loved ones. With the mounting expenses of a funeral and other end-of-life events, it can be difficult to even consider contacting an attorney. However, when a death is caused by the negligent behavior of another person (e.g., drunk driving, texting and driving, speeding, faulty manufacturing of safety devices, creating hazards on the road, etc.), you may be eligible to receive financial compensation in a wrongful death claim.
