Filing a Wrongful Death Suit after a Fatal Motorcycle Accident

There were 482 motorcycle fatalities in Texas in 2011, and many of them were caused by the negligence of another driver. When your loved one is wrongfully killed in a fatal motorcycle accident, your family has the right to seek compensation for your loss through a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claims can be difficult to prove when the death results from a motorcycle accident due to the stereotype of bikers being reckless on the road. When your loved one was the innocent victim of a negligent driver or manufacturer’s failure to warn of defective motorcycle designs or components, your family has the right to seek legal help for filing a wrongful death claim against the negligent party. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area who has experience in handling personal injury, wrongful death and motorcycle accident claims.
