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.
