Wrongful Death Lawsuits and Motorcycle Accidents
Sadly, there is a high fatality rate for motorcyclists that get into accidents on the road. Because of this, many personal injury cases involving motorcycle accidents are wrongful death lawsuits. Wrongful death lawsuits are personal injury cases in which the family or loved ones of the victim file the lawsuit on his or her behalf.
If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident due to another person or company’s negligence, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.

Elements of a Wrongful Death Claim
In order to win a wrongful death lawsuit, you will need evidence of each of the following elements:
- The death was caused, in whole or part, by the conduct of the defendant.
- The defendant was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death.
- There is a surviving spouse, children, beneficiaries or dependants.
- Monetary or emotional damages have resulted from the victim’s death.
There is no amount of money that can reduce the emotional pain that is felt by the loss of a loved one due to another’s negligence, but it can make dealing with the financial aftermath of a death somewhat easier.
