When involved in a motor vehicle collision, motorcyclists often receive the brunt of the injuries due to the lack of protection that a motorcycle offers. Unfortunately, this also results in the death of many motorcyclists. When dealing with the death of a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is important for surviving family members to understand their rights and options for obtaining justice and compensation.

When seeking compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit, the other side may allege that the deceased motorcyclist was at fault. Many insurance companies often take this stance: Riding a motorcycle equates to assumed risk of potential injury and death. Motorcycle riders do not assume the risk that others will drive negligently or recklessly. It is up to everyone to maintain safety on the roads, both for motorcyclists and other motorists. Our firm does not back down from any opposition or strategy, and aggressively seeks justice for you and your lost loved one.
It has been shown that motorcyclists and passengers who wear helmets are more likely to survive a serious motorcycle accident. However, motorcyclists can only do so much. The drivers of other vehicles need to be more aware of motorcycles on the roads in order to decrease the instances of devastating crashes. Even though helmets are shown to protect bikers and increase crash survival rates, motorcyclists often die of other types of injuries that result from motorcycle accidents, such as internal injuries and bleeding.
