We recently discussed how the rate of deaths in motorcycle crashes has increased. This is a troubling fact because many of these deaths could be avoided if other drivers would just watch for motorcyclists. In fact, in two-thirds of motorcycle crashes that include another vehicle, the driver of the vehicle was at fault for the crash because that driver didn’t yield the right of way to the motorcyclist when that right did belong to the biker.
When you lose a loved one in a motorcycle crash, you need to make sure that you give yourself time to grieve. A sudden loss like this is traumatic and you might find that you can’t shake the feeling that you need to do something about it. One thing that you can do is to seek compensation from the driver who struck your loved one’s motorcycle.
You might think that a wrongful death lawsuit is too little too late. While it is true that the lawsuit isn’t going to bring your loved one back, it can help you show the driver that his or her actions did have consequences. If successful, the lawsuit could help you cover the final expenses that you had to pay for your loved one’s funeral.
