Have you lost a loved one to a fatal motorcycle accident?
In 2005, per the NHTSA'S National Center for Statistics and Analysis, there were over four thousand motorcycle accidents that claimed the lives of one or more involved. Typically, this fatality was the actual operator as opposed to a passenger (98 percent compared to 2 percent), and more commonly occurred with multiple vehicles than single vehicle accidents (56 percent compared to 44 percent). If you have recently had a loved one that was injured in a fatal accident, then, it's important that you remember that you are not without hope. If negligence was the cause of the fatality, then you could have grounds to file a wrongful death claim and to seek compensation to help cover associated costs.
So what kind of compensation is available to the surviving family of a motorcycle accident victim? This could be used to mitigate the grief that the family feels, as well as to help with the more tangible and physical costs - such as funeral and burial expenses, any medical bills that were associated with the accident, as well as the lost income that your family has endured. It can even go so far as to help with the loss of companionship that is experienced by the spouse or other loved ones of the victim.
