Legal Claims for Motorcycle Wrongful Death

If a loved one loses their life because of a motorcycle accident, you may receive compensation from the responsible party. When another party is at fault for the accident, they may be responsible for paying compensation.

What are the grounds for legal liability in a motorcycle accident?

Legal liability for a motorcycle accident may be based on any of the following:

  • Turning in front of the motorcyclist
  • Cutting off a motorcyclist, lane change violations
  • Not allowing the motorcyclist full use of the lane
  • Leaving too little space between vehicles
  • Failing to account for road conditions or traffic, including the possibility of motorcyclists
  • Opening a door to prevent a motorcycle from moving
  • Drunk driving, drugged driving
  • Texting while driving, distracted driving, driving while tired or fatigued
  • Speeding, too fast for conditions
  • Mechanical failures, inadequate vehicle maintenance

After an accident, you may not have all the answers about why it occurred and who has legal fault. We investigate the situation and how you may receive compensation.

What kind of legal claim is a fatal motorcycle accident?

The victim’s family brings the claim, seeking monetary compensation for financial and emotional losses.

Most motorcycle wrongful death claims are not based on intentional conduct. A traffic error is enough to create legal liability based on negligence. We can investigate and build your case even if the other party doesn’t admit fault. It is our goal to pursue all avenues for compensation.

Who may have a claim for motorcycle wrongful death in Florida?

Under Florida Revised Statutes § 768.21, the following family members may have a claim for motorcycle wrongful death in Florida:

  • Spouse
  • Minor child (up to 25 years)
  • Adult child, if no spouse
  • Parent of a minor child
  • Parent of adult children, if no others qualify

All family members must be identified in the complaint. Each survivor recovers the value of lost support and services in relation to their deceased loved one.

What damages can I recover?

Damages that may be claimed in a motorcycle accident death claim include:

  • Funeral costs
  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional and mental suffering
  • Inheritance
  • Value of lost support and services

The value of lost support and services may be calculated from injury to death as well as in the future. Life expectancy and period of minority may be considered.

How can a lawyer help me?

To truly receive justice after the loss of a loved one in a motorcycle accident, there are many things that need to happen. You must determine what party or parties have legal liability. You must identify and prove the grounds for legal fault. It can be hard to know what you qualify to claim.

Having a lawyer means having a trained professional take care of everything. We create a custom legal strategy using our training and experience.
