Motorcycle Accident Wrongful Death Attorneys: We’re on Your Side

Each year, about 5,000 motorcyclists are killed nationwide. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, you may decide to file a wrongful death lawsuit to try and hold the reckless party responsible for the tragedy they’ve caused. The attorneys at our firm have more than 850 years of combined experience. We are ready to fight for you.

Recovering Financially from Your Loved One’s Death

Families do not deserve to be financially ruined because of someone else’s negligence. If your motorcycle accident wrongful death lawsuit is successful, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of future income (that the deceased would have potentially earned)
  • Medical expenses as a result of the crash
  • Loss of benefits, such as health benefits and retirement income
  • Other financial losses

There may also be non-monetary damages, such as the loss of:

  • services
  • care
  • protection
  • guidance
  • companionship & affection

Life can become difficult when someone who may be the only breadwinner in the family has suddenly died, particularly due to someone else’s negligence. Was the at-fault person texting and driving? Making an unsafe left turn? Whatever the source of their negligence, the at-fault party should bear the financial burden of making you whole after causing a tragic fatality.

Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Claim After a Motorcycle Wreck?

It is usually the administrator or executor of the victim’s estate who brings the wrongful death action. The goal of the lawsuit is to show that the defendant was careless, reckless, or negligent in causing the victim’s death. The defendant may be the other driver or it may be the company responsible for the defective product or part that caused the fatality.

Tip: You only have a limited amount of time to pursue a wrongful death case…and the longer you wait, the more difficult it can become.

How a Motorcycle Accident Wrongful Death Lawyer May Be Able to Help

When the government seeks justice against an individual, this is a criminal proceeding. Was the other party driving under the influence, for example? They likely have been or will be punished criminally. For criminal cases, the punishment can be financial, such as a fine, or it could be physical, such as sending an offender to prison.

While a private individual doesn’t have the power to restrict a person’s physical freedom, they do have the right to pursue financial compensation for their harms and losses. A civil proceeding like a wrongful death lawsuit is intended to restore the wronged person or people – in this case, the family members left behind — back to the financial state they would have been in if their loved one had never died.

Our Contingency Fee Arrangement

Money may already be tight right now — you shouldn’t have to pay to pursue everything you may be entitled to under the law. Our contingency fee arrangement means you don’t pay an attorney’s fee unless you get compensation.2 It eliminates finances as a barrier to seeking the compensation you may deserve.

You’ll sleep better at night knowing you and your James Scott Farrin attorney are aligned in trying to get maximum compensation as quickly as possible.
